I always knew that those hunts where rich guys pay $250,000 and some homeless guy gets a 20 minute head start on them were real.
Leave it to Cheney to blow it for everyone by shooting the wrong dude.UPDATE:
Anyone notice that the Cheney camp is trying to blame the guy who got shot? Class act, that Cheney. Here is what happened. "Now, if you read the description provided by Katharine Armstrong, the Bush-Cheney fundraiser on whose 'ranch' this happened, what she seems to describe is this: The birds 'flush'. Cheney picks out a bird and starts following it. In the process he basically wheels around doing a 180. So he's spun around and is now firing backwards relative to the direction he had been facing. And Whittington was just, for whatever reason, where Cheney didn't expect him to be.
First, needless to say, hunting accidents happen. That said, one point that comes through really clearly from everyone is that when you're hunting and you hit a person -- that's your fault. Period. End of story. - VIA TPM
