Moron Fires Gun at Bush Ranch

We all know about Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq. She has been leading a protest vigil outside the Bush estate (come on -- ranch? It's an estate) in Texas. With about 60 people, she even had a religious service there Sunday morning.

But the point here is not Ms. Sheehan. It's Larry Mattlage, who owns a place across the street from where all this is happening. Seems Mr. Mattlage doesn't apporove of Ms. Sheehan's protest (or maybe he doesn't like the way she's blocking his view, or maybe he just hates church services. I dunno). So to show his annoyance, he fires off his gun a couple of times.

During the service. Across the street from the President's house. During a war.

Needless to say, the Secret Service was all over this moron like a cheap suit. But they didn't arrest him, because it seems that firing your shotgun into the air across the street from the President's house while people are praying for peace isn't a crime.

As Mr. Mattlage said, "This is Texas." You know, the place where they steal piggy banks from Sunday School children.
