Well, the good news is, Dick Cheney didn’™t shoot anyone in the face today. There is no word on whether or not he was looking for his shotgun when a bomb went off near the camp he was visiting in Afghanistan prior to his meeting with the mayor of Kabul, Hamid Karzai.

The military was quick to trot out the PR flacks and say that no, Cheney was not being targeted in the bombing. Of course, the Taliban came right back, issued their own press release and said, ‘œBullshit. We were after the Dickster.’

It’™s hard to believe that the bombing this morning was coincidental to Cheney’™s visit. And while I’™m no fan of the dark lord, it would be pretty damn convenient for the Bush regime if Cheney were to, well, get blown up while on the Afghanistan leg of his world tour. It gets rid of the regime’™s ‘œCheney problem’, and builds 9/11-style sympathy for McFlightsuit and the rest of the 1600 Crew.

So, maybe the Taliban did light off the car bomb in an attempt to get the VP, as they claim. But if so, it begs the question: how did Mullah Omar’™s boys know that the Dickster was going to be visiting, or his location at a specific point in time? Was there some insider information being passed to the rogue elements in Afghanistan?

That’™s the primary reason the military was fast out of the gate stating that Cheney wasn’™t a target. He just happened to be in the area. By the military’™s logic, the bomb would have been blown up outside the military compound even if Cheney was in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. And maybe that’™s in fact true (but color me highly doubtful).

I try to avoid conspiracy theories, yet it all just seems too damn convenient’¦
