One More Reason Not To Spend The Day With Dick Cheney
If he will shoot his friends in the face, the rest of us haven’t got a fighting chance. I keep trying to work out the statistical plausibility of the Bush administration and the numbers just don’t add up. Beyond the statistical impossibility of Bush/Cheney’s re-election, what are the chances that a President would almost die choking on a pretzel? Considering only 2,800 people a year die from choking on any object (most of them children) and there have been only 43 Presidents, I would say that the chances are pretty slim. And how likely is it that a Vice President will accidentally shoot you in the face? Well, there have been 46 Vice Presidents and there were only 30 hunting accidents in Texas last year so again the chances are about a zillion to .0000001.
I guess what we should take away from this is that Bush and Cheney are the luckiest sons of bitches to ever walk the earth and the rest of us couldn’t possibly be any unluckier. Although my husband says that the real lesson is, if you’re a lawyer, don’t sneak up on Dick Cheney. Solid advice for sure.
