Cheney Shoots Hunter in Texas (TX republican mistaken for quail, not Quayle)

Breaking news from ABC, NYT, WAPO -- apparently broken, originated by the Associated Press:
Cheney Accidentally Shoots and Injures Fellow Hunter in Texas

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.

...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.

...."The vice president didn't see him," ......"The covey flushed and the vice president picked out a bird and was following it and shot. And by god, Harry was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty good."

Okay, so allegedly it was an 'accident' -- (I doubt if there were any Democrats on this hunting trip).

Just what we need: more hard of hearing, myopic (on so many levels), demented, old crotchety, angry, entitled white guys carrying loaded guns and shooting at people and other living creatures. Pro-life my ass.

This is one of the world's major political power dominators who oppresses countries and tells everyone all the 'shoulds' and 'ought-tos' and rules for living? One of the GOP's big, bad, pro-gun, pro-militarism guys who never served in the military because he got, what FIVE or so deferments? And he's next in command after the bubble boy in chief? These guys like Cheney run the world? Gimme a great big fat effing break -- puhlease!

Can't wait to hear Comedy Central, Jay Leno, David Letterman, et al on this freak's accident.

ABC story here, NYT here, WaPo story here has more details, cuz it was filed later than the original.
