Dick Cheney: How I Could Just Shoot a Man

Hmm, I've read two references to Aaron Burr in two days - isn't it weird when some random thing gets repeated? First, the Chronic of Narnia SNL video ("Call us Aaron Burr from the way we're dropping Hamiltons"), which proves that, even when it's largely dreck, SNL every now and then comes up with a gem. And then Dick Cheney shoots a man, leading to this droll quote from the Washington Post's White House reporter Peter Baker:
Asked if knew of any other vice president shooting a man, Baker replied: "Obviously there was Aaron Burr shooting Alexander Hamilton in a duel in 1804, but that was actually intentional and in that case the victim died."
Also found the "West Coast response" to the Narnia rap, and found that an old colleague Adam Stein was in it (together with Mark "Practical Magic" Feuerstein) - one of those "Where are they now?" moments.
