Is Dick Cheney a Better Shot Than You Are?


Last night I happened to catch the premiere of Power of 10, the new game show hosted by Drew Carey in which contestants win money by accurately predicting the way a percentage of Americans would answer a given question.

I was impressed by Drew Carey (who will soon be hosting The Price is Right) and was somewhat surprised that the producers would actually go there with this question which, of course, sprang from the vice president's infamous hunting accident.


The 19-year-old kid playing the game locked in a guess at between 35-55%. Find out the answer after the jump...



43% of Americans think that Cheney would shoot them first.

The kid won $100,000 for accurately guessing that question, and then went on to win $1 million. I guess they wanted to start the show off with a bang (so to speak) but if they're giving away money that quickly, Carey noted, "they won't last until September."

  1. Saw it and thought the show was fantasic. Best of all, the 19 year old contestant was intelligent, has a future and he appears deserving. Wonder how much money his mother will rangle away from him?

  2. Okay, Koko, Jamie isn't gay...sounds like the casting guy might be, though. :-) Maybe this means more hotties are in the wings. Fingercrossed.

  4. drew carey claims to be a libertarian, which seems to me to be little more than republican-lite: unbridled capitalism, little or no taxes, no social programs. the only important thing that separates libertarians from the repugs is their belief that government should stay out of people's personal lives and affairs. fuck him.
