I’d Hunt with Cheney Anyday

13 02 2006

From Breitbart

Harry Whittington, 78, was “alert and doing fine” after Cheney sprayed Whittington with shotgun pellets on Saturday at the Armstrong Ranch in south Texas, said property owner Katharine Armstrong.

Armstrong said Cheney turned to shoot a bird and accidentally hit Whittington. She said Whittington was taken to Corpus Christi Memorial Hospital by ambulance. Cheney’s spokeswoman, Lea Anne McBride, said the vice president was with Whittington, a lawyer from Austin, Texas, and his wife at the hospital on Sunday afternoon.

Update: AP

“It broke the skin,” McBride said. “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.” She said emergency personnel traveling with Cheney tended to Whittington, holding his face and cleaning up the blood. “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,” she said.

And Conservative Thinking has the reactions of the left, the self-titled “Kind and Gentle” party in comments such as:

“Guns don’t kill people……maniacal, ignorant, national-security-breaching, draft deferring cowards do.”

A little edgy, I believe. And these people are getting behind the wheel of a car every day!

Leave it to Dickless Cheney to f*#! up a hunting trip. Just add it to the
long, long list of things Bushpigs aren’t competent to handle.

Nice user name for the previous commenter. Thanks for showing your true colors.

This is a very unfortunate accident for the man who was shot as well as Vice President Cheney. It will be even more unfortunate if Democrats latch onto this
issue to attack the Vice President when there are many more legitimate issues to hold against him right now.

A little tact can go a long way.

But I’d rather hunt with Dick Cheney anyday than be alone in a room with Bill Clinton!
