Let's Play the "Imagine If" Game...

Skidmark sends in this interesting story, no doubt meant as a heartwarming "regular people" type story:

Biden drenched by children with super-soakers

Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden's cordial annual media picnic turned into an all-out war between the vice president and children of journalists in attendance.

The vice president distributed high-powered water guns to the children gathered at his official residence and identified notable journalists for them to pursue.

Now, again, imagine if this had been Dick Cheney instead of harmless ol' Plugs? How would those headlines have read differently?

Vice President Intimidates Media with High Powered Weapons!!!

Cheney Calls on Halliburton contacts, provides small arms to children!

Vice President Cheney, not content with shooting lawyers, sets his sights on the media.

The possibilities are endless...

That is all.

But don't most children already have small arms, and small legs to match?

In the age of "zero tolerance" where kids are suspended from school for using a plastic spoon as a gun or pointing a finger and saying "bang," I'm surprised the Secret Service allowed this to happen.

I'll bet those kids are on a terrorist watch list for the rest of their lives now.
