"How do you shoot an old man in the face and get him to apologize?" says 'Daily Show' host Jon Stewart, referring to the infamous hunting accident involving Vice President Cheney. "Ooh Cheney, he must be evil, ooh, what's he hiding, what are his secrets?

"Well as it turns out," Stewart continues, referring to the new Washington Post series focusing on Cheney, "what he was hiding, was everything."

"Dick Cheney exists neither in the executive branch nor the legislative, yet simultaneously in both," 'Daily Show' correspondent John Oliver adds. "He is neither man nor beast, yet has elements of the twain. He is at once everything and nothing, substance without form, shape without motion, time without reason... he is the Highlander."
