The final installment of the Katie Couric / Sarah Palin interviews airs tonight on the ‘CBS Evening News.’ Boy, we’ll miss them when they’re gone.

In tonight’s segment, part of the network’s ‘Vice Presidential Questions’ series, Couric asked both Palin and Democratic vice presidential nominee, Sen. Joe Biden, to name the best thing and the worst thing Vice President Dick Cheney has done in office.

Palin’s answer for Cheney’s worst act as VP: “I guess that would have been the duck hunting accident.’

Palin, of course, was refering to Cheney’s accidental shooting of a fellow hunter while on a quail hunting trip in 2006. It didn’t take place in the vice president’s office but on a Texas ranch.
