Vice president urged to make public statement on shooting
Vice President Cheney's slow and unapologetic public response to the accidental shooting of a 78-year-old Texas lawyer is turning the quail-hunting mishap into a political liability for the Bush administration and is prompting senior White House officials to press Cheney to publicly address the issue as early as today, several prominent Republicans said yesterday.

For the record, I hope the guy does not die. However, I also I hope that this press coverage does not discourage loathsome old Republicans from shooting other loathsome old Republicans in the face. When it comes to Republicans randomly shooting shot guns off in the vicinity of other Republicans, I am for it.
