Dick Cheney, Time for a New Set of Glasses

So, Dick Cheney takes his friend, Austin millionaire Harry Whittington, and one other friend out for a hunting trip in Texas. They’re all wearing the orange vests, there are three of them, so keeping track shouldn’t be that hard. Whittington goes into a bush to grab a bird he shot, is coming back with the bird, and Cheney, who’s following a bird with his gun, shoots Whittington at point blank range. Not a great way to treat a guest, huh?

Evidently, Whittington is not badly hurt:

"It broke the skin," she said of the shotgun pellets. "It knocked him silly. But he was fine. He was talking. His eyes were open. It didn't get in his eyes or anything like that. Fortunately, the vice president has got a lot of medical people around him and so they were right there and probably more cautious than we would have been. The vice president has got an ambulance on call, so the ambulance came."

So what’s the scoop, did Whittington give money to a democratic candidate, or does he have a document implicating the White House in one of their many scandals? Or perhaps Cheney didn’t notice the bright orange vest in his line of fire. Any which way, I am definitely not accepting that invitation to go hunting down in Texas. With my blog, I’m sure Cheney would shoot twice more after I was on the ground from the first shot.
