The January 2007 cover is a picture of Dick Cheney with a twisted smirk on his face, and a smoking shotgun in his hands, and it reads:

'If you don't buy this magazine, Dick Cheney* will shoot you in the face.' 


In a smaller font, the footnote under that text reads: 

'*Yes, this is a photo illustration. We had to say that, or Dick Cheney would shoot us in the face.' Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Do you think Dick Cheney should sue Texas Monthly for their portrayal of him on their January 2007 cover?

Bwahaha I love it. If he's a hunter and likes shooting things so much, he should be proud. If he got mad about it that would just show he knows how wrong it is.

He's a complete loser if he does, that sounds hilarious! Has anyone got a picture?

On what grounds could he possibly sue them?

He could never win such a lawsuit.

Besides, that sounds hilarious. And really, if you're a national political figure and you shoot your friend in the face, you can't expect to not be mocked.

Just because he's a hunter doesn't mean he likes shooting people in the face.

(Ack, did I just defend Dick Cheney?)

I don't know, I honestly just wanted to make a question about the cover, I didn't care what it was.

I think it's in bad taste but I don't think he should sue.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 1/28/07 - 3:33:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hehehe, that ssooooooo Funny!
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 1/28/07 - 4:08:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's hilarious!

HA! We get Texas Monthly at work...why didn't I see that?????
"Riffing on Esquire's classic "Dubious Achievement Awards," Texas Monthly said the Veep earned the top spot by being "a real blast to go hunting with"."

No, he shouldn't sue, it would just fuel the fire.

15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 1/28/07 - 5:02:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hahaha, I like it!

Cheney will look even worse if he tries to sue.

Are you in Texas, or outside? They might have a different cover for the subscribers outside the State...

Yeah, it is strange. I posted the cover for photo A and B. Then the question is on the left side, it has both, when it is a question, it shows one on the right side, and in the forum, it doesn't show it at all...

15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 1/28/07 - 10:56:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haha, I think he'd be laughed at if he sued them. Better to laugh with them, then make them go under by making them pay a Dick Cheney tax or something.

#16!

That's great!

Why is Texas Monthly waiting for now to poke fun at a year old joke? It would have been histerical if they did it a couple months after the fact.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 12:58:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
Damn, that dude is scary.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 8:25:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
I like how you swapped the buttons.

He shouldn't sue them. He should shoot them in the face.

15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 12:46:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Bwahahaha, that's funny as sh*t!!!!
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 1:04:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Bwahahaha! That's good stuff.
If he sued over that, he has NO sense of humor.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 1:42:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, he should just laugh it off
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 5:48:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think he even can. Freedom of speech.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 7:22:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes he should because that would just make it funnier
