BAD WEEK ENDS ON A SOUR NOTE FOR "BUNGALOW DICK"

"He went out quail hunting with his elephant and gu-u-un..." (apologies to Lennon/McCartney)

Vice President Dick Cheney's bad week has continued to go poorly right up to the end.

Earlier this week Cheney inched ever closer to being "outed" as the main leaker in the Valerie Plame case, as his former chief of staff Scooter Libbey is reported to have testified that his "superiors" authorized him to leak classified information to the press.

Cheney's bad week continued Saturday, when he accidentally shot a hunting buddy during a quail hunt in Texas. Fortunately, as the AP reports, Cheney's hunting partner was doing OK as of Sunday, when word of the incident made it's way into the press.

Whether it's spelled "quail" or "Quayle" that word never seems to bring good news for members of the GOP.
