Rabbi Daniel Lupin on one reason for the media's Cheney obsession:
Not only have most liberals never gone hunting, most don't even know anyone who goes hunting. In fact most wouldn't know a Browning A-Bolt long action Stalker from an office stapler. They simply cannot believe that someone who hunts actually made it to the White House.
What they don't realize is that they sound like fools to large parts of the country where hunting is a common pasttime.
