From the beginning, this particular aspect of Cheney’s cover-story seemed implausible :
Now some guys with a video camera and a shotgun have busted that myth :
While the details of the shot’s spread are a little hard to see in the video, the pellet penetration pretty much debunks the Vice President’s affadvit to the Kenedy County Sheriff’s Department. Are the media, law enforcement, and Congress paying attention?
UPDATE : On further reflection, the video above is pretty retarded. The boasts about “scientific proof” are over-the-top, the details of the tests are dubious, and the guy performing the test is one of those loons who, among other things, loses sleep over Bush’s membership in the “Skull & Bones”. I still think Cheney’s story reeks, but I should be more careful about giving credibility to some random dude who’s shooting watermelons with a shotgun. I’ve been watching way too many episodes of Mythbusters, I guess.
