Proving once again that nothing stands in the way of his quarry, whether it be a fellow hunter or a sovereign nation, Vice President Dick (Head) Cheney today "accidentally" shot fellow hunter Harry Whittington as Cheney picked out a quail from a covey that was in flight and followed it inflight and shot.
Fortunately for Whittington Cheney always has a lot of medical personnel around him at all times, in case he knees fill up with fluid, or needs another blood transfusion allowing him to cheat death for another month or so. The medical team attended to Whittington until emergency services could arrive.
A spokesperson for Cheney said the Vice President had become trigger happy as of late being almost three years since he started a war. Also the prospect of having to wait for sufficient reason before bombing Iran had made the Veep "edgy".
Whittington is expected to recover from his wounds, although his $11 million worth of Travis (TX) County property, the center of condemnation battle with the city of Austin was seized by the city under current eminent domain rules and is scheduled to be demolished. The demolition contract went to a subsidiary of Halliburton.
