  1. Jason: I was half-tempted to write in this post that if a miracle happened & this incident made Dick Cheney realize how precious life is & how easy to snuff out at the hands of a careless individual like himself (with gun in hand) then perhaps we might have a Saul/Paul conversion moment in which he converts to gun control. But that seems even more far-fetched than the fantastical possibility that a vice president of the United States would actually blast someone with a shotgun.

    H. Ross: That’s an interesting question but I believe that Burr had already lost in the House of Representatives & challenged Hamilton because the latter had led the forces seeking to deprive him of victory. That’s my recollection which could be wrong.

    UPDATE: You’re totally vindicated buddy. The Times confirms today that Aaron Burr WAS vice president when he shot and killed Alexander Hamilton though of course it didn’t do much to enhance his political reputation. I don’t think Cheney can do much more than he already has to make his reputation and career implode though this incident may help him in that department.
