Comics Keep Taking Shots At Cheney

Late-night comedians didn't let up on Vice President Cheney Tuesday in the wake of his weekend hunting incident.

After firing away Monday (video), they kept it up Tuesday.

David Letterman (video) was among them.

Among his quips, on the "Late Show with David Letterman" was this one: "Good news today. So far, Dick Cheney has not shot anybody."

Jay Leno said, "I'm surprised Dick Cheney loves to hunt so much. I mean, the five times the government tried to give him a gun (draft him), he got a deferrment." That crack came on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

And on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," he said, "The bird shot the vice president used to shoot the man ... lodged in the man's body and went into his heart and caused him to suffer a minor heart attack. Mr. Wittington is doing fine but, based on this development, we're gonna downgrade the condition of the story from, 'incredibly hilarious' to 'still funny but, ehhh, a little sad.' " Stewart showed a graphic with those descriptions in different colors, similar to the old terror alert warning color codes.
