"The Right to Arm Bears" by Steve Payne

Author says: in which we amuse ourselves by envisioning a rather different hunting incident for the former Vice President? Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).

In 2006, the conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh was accidentally peppered in the face with birdshot pellets by Vice President Dick Cheney during a hunt in the north-western United States.

Cheney had turned to shoot what he thought was a fat grizzly bear but fortunately Limbaugh escaped unscathed as the majority of the bird-shot lodged in his jowls.

When asked for a comment in his hospital bed, Rush chirped that it was an honor to be shot by such a great American.

Author says this not-to-be-taken seriously post was adapted from a comment entered by Mr Joseph Annaruma on may 1st 2010. The comic expression used in this title was devised by the comedian Robin Williams. To view guest historian's comments on this post please visit the Today in Alternate History web site.

Imagine what would be, if history had occurred a bit differently. Who says it didn't, somewhere? These fictional news items explore that possibility. Possibilities such as America becoming a Marxist superpower, aliens influencing human history in the 18th century and Teddy Roosevelt winning his 3rd term as president abound in this interesting fictional blog.
