WASHINGTON - 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.

"You know Dick, I'm not too sure about this surveillence stuff, or the Iraq War."

 

"Oh, that's alright Al - hey, go get that bird I just got!"

Better yet, he shot a lawyer. I hope that 76 year old lawyer sues and then dies. Then like someone previously stated, Dick Cheny woud be charged for manslaughter! Just think of the US without Cheny....

Cheney was very apologetic, and to be honest, the guy that got shot even admitted he was stupid and got shot because he wasn't thinking.

 

Although, one must wonder why Cheney would shoot if he didn't know where the hell his friend was, especially since the last birds he shot were in the same vicinity. . .

With no word from Cheney, the Daily Show stands in

 

 

 

Dick Cheney still hasn't appeared in public to discuss his accidental shooting of a 78-year-old man, but there are plenty of people willing to speak on the veep's behalf -- among them, Comedy Central's Rob Corddry. Playing the role of a "vice president firearms mishap analyst," Corddry explained it all Monday night for Daily Show host Jon Stewart:

 

Stewart: Rob, obviously a very unfortunate situation. How is the vice president handling it?

 

Corddry: Jon, tonight the vice president is standing by his decision to shoot Harry Whittington. According to the best intelligence available, there were quail hidden in the brush. Everyone believed at the time there were quail in the brush. And while the quail turned out to be a 78-year-old man, even knowing that today, Mr. Cheney insists he still would have shot Mr. Whittington in the face. He believes the world is a better place for his spreading buckshot throughout the entire region of Mr. Whittington's face.

 

Stewart: But why, Rob? If he had known Mr. Whittington was not a bird, why would he still have shot him?

 

Corddry: Jon, in a post-9-11 world, the American people expect their leaders to be decisive. To not have shot his friend in the face would have sent a message to the quail that America is weak.

 

Stewart: That's horrible.

 

Corddry: Look, the mere fact that we're even talking about how the vice president drives up with his rich friends in cars to shoot farm-raised wingless quail-tards is letting the quail know 'how' we're hunting them. I'm sure right now those birds are laughing at us in that little 'covey' of theirs.

 

Stewart: I'm not sure birds can laugh, Rob.

 

Corddry: Well, whatever it is they do -- coo -- they're cooing at us right now, Jon, because here we are talking openly about our plans to hunt them. Jig is up. Quails one, America zero.

Texas officials: Cheney hunt broke the law

 

Texas wildlife officials say that Vice President Dick Cheney was violating state law when he shot a 78-year-old attorney while hunting Saturday.

The response from Cheney's office won't come as a surprise to anyone who's been following this case so far: It was somebody else's fault.

 

 

ABC and CNN are both reporting that Cheney was hunting quail without the "upland game bird stamp" required by state law. And indeed, the incident reported filed by Texas Park and Wildlife officials -- and posted at The Smoking Gun -- indicates that Cheney violated Parks and Wildlife Code Section 43.652, which requires hunters to purchase the $7 stamp before setting off in search of "turkey, quail, pheasant, chachalaca and lesser prairie chicken."

 

 

CNN says that Texas officials are issuing Cheney a warning for hunting without such a stamp, which is apparently routine in such cases. According to the network, Cheney has just sent the State of Texas a check for $7 -- even as Cheney's aides insist that state officials assured them in advance that the vice president had all the permits required by law.

chcachala and lesser prararie chicken? What would a species have to do to be named that?

It's only $7 to shoot a lawyer in Texas? I'm surprised there are any lawyers left.

 

I think this incident would make a good ballad. Maybe something about a sage grouse and a sage grump.

This whole thing is ridiculous. How does it affect the world? Is it really that big of a deal that the news wasn't released immediatley following the accident? It was an accident, the guy is all right, this isn't the end of the world. This story just needs to go away, it's not important. If the guy was disabled/dead, then it would be a big deal, but he's ok.

How did Bill Clinton getting a blow job affect the world? Its people making sure their leaders are held accountable for their actions. Not to say getting a blow job is bad, but still.

In England, Robert Bakewell and Thomas Coke introduced selective breeding (mating together two animals with particularly desirable characteristics), and inbreeding to reduce genetic diversity in desirable animals programs from the mid 18th century as methods for producing bigger and more profitable livestock.

Ahh yes. A non-story. Then whom did those wonderful fairandbalanced people cover? That's right--an obscure guy shooting another obscure guy.
