    Before hospital officials announced details of Whittington's condition, the hunting accident had produced a raft of Cheney jokes on late-night television.

    "I think Cheney is starting to lose it," Jay Leno said. "After he shot the guy he screamed, `Anyone else want to call domestic wiretapping illegal?!'"

    On Tuesday morning, the White House spokesman briefly joined in the merriment, joking that the orange school colors of the visiting University of Texas championship football team should not be mistaken for hunters' safety gear.

    "The orange that they're wearing is not because they're concerned that the vice president may be there," press secretary Scott McClellan said. "That's why I'm wearing it."

    Also, anyone seen an image of Rove making what was labeled the "hook 'em longhorns" gesture (though I've always thought of as "devil horns")? Now when I do a Google image search for "Rove longhorns", I find images of Rove and longhorn beetles and nothing else.

    •  It's just "hook 'em horns" (none)
      And do you remember when Bush did the "hook 'em horns" sign during his inaugural motorcade?  It caused some confusion abroad--they thought he was making the sign of Satan or something.  I got a huge chuckle out of that, as I'm not a fan of Bush OR the Texas Longhorns!
      •  Thanks for the correction (none)
        That could have caused me some serious snickers in a Texas bar. Not that I've ever been to one... Still, "rove horns" doesn't get the image I wanted. I wonder whether it's been scrubbed.

        As for the inaugural motorcade, all I saw of it was in Fahrenheit 9/11.
