If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...it's unethical, Mr. Vice President! Thanks to the ever-alert Ohioan, Melissa, for this one -- it seems US Supreme Court Uberconservative Antonin Scalia went on a duck-hunting trip in Louisiana with none other than VP Dick "Prince of Darkness" Cheney. Aside from killing some ducks, and discussing their respective fiendish plots for world domination, they surely violated some rules -- since Cheney is involved in a case before the Court. But hell, even if he wasn't, in my view the executive and judicial branches should be growing on opposite sides of the tree, if you know what I mean. Feh.
