Drinking Liberally: Have a Shot in the Face

Grab your body armor and come out for this week's edition of Drinking Liberally, that weekly conglomeration of left-of-center conversationalists, activists, and dangerously attractive drinkers at Jack of the Wood. Tonight we'll examine the crime scene on a Texas ranch where the obviously malevolent Dick Cheney shot Harry Whittington in the face.

Dick Cheney is still on the loose, and he's still armed. After shooting his friend in the face, then hiding until he sobered up, Cheney hunkered down in his press blind for few days. The administration first downplayed the incident, laughing about the funny man who got himself shot in the face. They tried blaming it on the face-shot Whittington. They told us to move on with full knowledge that the man who was shot in the face had a heart attack caused by a piece of 7 1/2 birdshot from the Vice President's 28-gauge rifle. What they didn't say, and what we're going to do, is Drink Liberally and mercilessly flog Dick Cheney's assault with a deadly quail gun.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usWhile we're at it we might as well mention that the Vice President former Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby, has fingered the Rifleman as the one of the "superiors" who told him to leak the identity of covert CIA operative, Valerie Plame. Scooter had better start wearing a kevlar helmet.

Me? I'll be wearing my beer goggles and carrying the banner of Drinking Liberally. Thanks to our spiffy writeup in this week's Xpress, we expect our biggest night ever, so come early and bring your friends. Jack of the Wood, 7-10pm, every Thursday, look for the snazzy table signs.
