Cheney accidentally shot lawyer

The shooting occurred in Texas YESTERDAY, but the MSM isn't getting around to reporting it as "breaking news" until Cheney already left the hospital. He visited Mr. Whittington, now in "stable condition" atthe hospital today. Should Dick be allowed to use guns if he can't tell the difference between a quail and a man?
Per CNN it's Mr. Whittington's fault as he didn't "announce" himself to Cheney.

Cheney Accidentally Shoots and Injures Fellow Hunter in Texas; Man, 78, 'Alert and Doing Fine'
WASHINGTON Feb 12, 2006 (AP)— 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 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..

Gee, it seems like only yesterday Cheney ridiculed Kerry's hunting skills.
