Cheney shoots fellow hunter

from :

Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and injured a man during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, his spokeswoman said Sunday.

Harry Whittington, 78, was 'alert and doing fine' after Cheney sprayed him with shotgun pellets on Saturday while the two were hunting at the Armstrong Ranch in south Texas, said property owner Katharine Armstrong.

Armstrong said Whittington was mostly injured on his right side, with the pellets hitting his cheek, neck and chest, and was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Whittington was in stable condition Sunday, said Yvonne Wheeler, spokeswoman for the Christus Spohn Health System.

Must be practicing for the survivalist refuge in the Bitterroots.

And people wonder why he doesn't want to run for the 2008 nomination... poor bastard has Ford-Carter syndrome. He's lucky he hasn't been assaulted by semi-aquatic attack rabbits yet.

It's karma. He deserves to be bitten hard on the ass for the Plame mess, if nothing else.

If it were karma, he would have been shot, not have accidentally shot someone else.

NRO is remarkably unsympathetic this time around. Cheney really does have no friends outside of the Oval Office and his own staff.

Maybe if he stopped shooting them...
