"The Daily Show" Skewers Cheney Shooting

Jon Stewart: "Why, if he had known that Mr. Whittington was not a bird -- if he had that information, why would he still have shot him in the face?"

Rob Corddry: "In a post 9-11 world, the American people expect their leaders to be decisive. To not have shot his friend in the face would have sent a message to the quail that America is weak."
