Birds of a Feather

Have nothing to fear from these guy's shotguns.

Rawstory reports that Dick Cheney will be campaigning for Rep. Randy Kuhl (R-NY).

The Vice President and Kuhl have each earned a measure of infamy for incidents involving firearms. Cheney accidentally shot his hunting partner Harry Whittington in the face earlier this year, while according to divorce records obtained by Raw Story, Kuhl once bullied his wife with shotguns. Raw Story has archived the divorce filing here.
Roll Call (registration restricted) has a great quote:
Cheney, the man who may always be remembered for accidentally shooting his good friend on a hunting trip, has agreed to do a private photo-op at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for Kuhl in Rochester, N.Y. And, yes, you guessed it, Kuhl is considered vulnerable this year.

As one Democratic operative told HOH, "I can't tell what Cheney likes best about him—Kuhl's penchant for rubber-stamping the president or for combining beer with firearm use."
Bolds mine. Hilarity aside, this is the party that runs on the 'Family Values' ticket. The GOP is also supposed to be the 'law and order' party. Also the party of the NRA.

Also of interest is the fact that when the V.P. comes to town, the candidate hides him away in a private photo-op. One would assume that any campaign donor that wants a picture with the Veep could probably find his or her way into the photo shoot (ha!) for a generous donation...
