http://www.nydailynews.com/front/story/391213p-331828c.html Vice President Cheney had no license to kill - quail, that is. After the White House reluctantly conceded yesterday that it sat on the blockbuster news that Cheney shot a hunting buddy Saturday, the veep's office revealed he didn't even have the proper $7 stamp on his hunting license to shoot quail in Texas. "The staff asked for all permits needed, but was not informed of the $7 upland game-bird stamp requirement," Cheney's office said in a statement last night. Although he was hunting illegally when he blasted Austin millionaire Harry Whittington, Cheney will get off with a warning from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, his office said. *** I guess if the President can be above the law, so can the Vice President. As they say, it's a culture of corruption in the Republican run Washington, DC.
