The vice-president shot a guy?
So here’s a legitimate question: do you think that if Al Gore had shot someone that the media wouldn’t hear/report it for 24 hours? And were the police called – is there a police report of this incident of the Vice President shooting someone? Questions swirl.
Lest we forget what this is about: the vice president of the United States shot somebody.
James and Sarah Brady Comment on the Vice President’s Hunting Mishap
“Now I understand why Dick Cheney keeps asking me to go hunting with him,” said Jim Brady. “I had a friend once who accidentally shot pellets into his dog – and I thought he was an idiot.”
“I’ve thought Cheney was scary for a long time,” Sarah Brady said. “Now I know I was right to be nervous.”
Following the incident, Cheney reportedly claimed that Whittington’s ties to the quail were “pretty well established”. Despite hitting only Mr. Whittington with his shotgun blast, Cheney was heard to be insisting hours later that the quail, since flown away, was in its “last throes”.
Cheney is a man who doesn’t just talk the talk. No, if he’s going to send American soldiers into harm’s way, where they might be shot at any moment by a deranged fanatic, he’s also going to do the same thing to his close personal friends. He’s giving his hunting buddies a taste of life in the Cheney Era, when you count yourself lucky just to get out alive.
