Bush to Cheney: The Only Way People Will Believe I'm Not Your Puppet Is If You Do Something Dumber Than I Do

Monday, February 13, 2006
The man who argued the loudest to the Invasion of Iraq seems to have a few issues telling friend from foe:
Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a companion during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, spraying the fellow hunter in the face and chest with shotgun pellets. Harry Whittington, a millionaire attorney from Austin, was "alert and doing fine" in a Corpus Christi hospital Sunday after he was shot by Cheney on a ranch in south Texas, said Katharine Armstrong, the property's owner. [...] The shooting was first reported by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. The vice president's office did not disclose the accident until nearly 24 hours after it happened.[...] Whittington "came up from behind the vice president and the other hunter and didn't signal them or indicate to them or announce himself," Armstrong said.
Press Office: Oh, yes, the vice-president did shoot someone ... did we forget to mention that?

It would be funny if these people weren't in control of the largest military force in the world.

Especially funny that many kills in the Gulf and Iraq were caused by American "friendly fire". With friends like that, who the heck needs enemies? Seriously.

Still, it makes me laugh. I hope the guy who got shot recovers though.
