Bush to Cheney: The Only Way People Will Believe I'm Not Your Puppet Is If You Do Something Dumber Than I DoMonday, February 13, 2006
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.
