Cheney was Breaking the Law...

The Houston Chronicle reports that Vice President Cheney and his hunting partner, Harry Whittington, were breaking the law when they went hunting.

The Chronicle reports that a new law in 2004 requires "hunters to get [a] special $7 stamp to hunt quail." Their license did not have the appropriate stamp.

Watching "Hardball" on MSNBC, Chris Matthews indicated the vice president failed to tell Bush of the incident until Monday. However, the New York Times writes today the president was notified Saturday evening; and during a White House brief meeting, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said the White House was notified at 7:30 p.m. The shooting took place at 6:30 p.m., Eastern time and Rove notified the president around 8:00 p.m.

Of course, Rove ain't exactly the vice president, so maybe both reports are right. But with the current band of liars in the White House, who the hell can be sure of anything...?

Bloggers and media also helpfully report that the Secret Service would not allow Cheney to talk to state troopers and it took nearly 22 hours before the White House confirmed the story to reporters.

This bird shooting story just gets weirder and weirder!
