In the News - Feb. 12

Cheney Shoots Man While Hunting - 12 Feb 2006 at 4:00pm - Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and injured a man during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas. Harry Whittington, 78, was "alert and fine" after Cheney sprayed him with shotgun pellets on Saturday.
Doesn't this pretty well symbolize the entire Bush presidency?

This will undoubtedly generate a brazillion really funny jokes; to the funny ones, allow me to add my own:

"Cheney disavowed any responsibility for the apparant case of mistaken identity, in which Mr. Whittington was taken for the actual target, claiming Director of Central Intelligence Porter Goss told him it was a 'slam duck'."

"Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld sought to assure Senators that 'no innocent Americans were targeted' in the attack which sent Mr. Whittington to the hospital with non-life-threatening wounds. Rumsfeld also revealed that the Pentagon believes four high-ranking Al Qaida operatives may have been killed as a result of the operation; results of DNA tests are pending."

"White House staffers distributed this photo of Mr. Whittington:"
