Don’t mess with Dick Cheney…or he’ll shoot you in the FACE!

Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a companion during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, spraying the fellow hunter in the face and chest with shotgun pellets.

Harry Whittington, a millionaire attorney from Austin, was “alert and doing fine” in a Corpus Christi hospital Sunday after he was shot by Cheney on a ranch in south Texas, said Katharine Armstrong, the property’s owner.

He was described as in stable condition by Yvonne Wheeler, spokeswoman for the Christus Spohn Health System in Corpus Christi.

Armstrong in an interview with The Associated Press said Whittington, 78, was mostly injured on his right side, with the pellets hitting his cheek, neck and chest during the incident which occurred late afternoon on Saturday

She said emergency personnel traveling with Cheney tended to Whittington until the ambulance arrived.

What this story doesn’t tell you is that Harry sassed Dick about Libby flapping his gums to Fitzgerald in the Plame leak case before he shot him in the FACE!

Moral to this story? Don’t mess with Dick Cheney or he will shoot you in the FACE!

(p.s. – in all seriousness, I hope this guy gets better. After all, it’s not everyday you get shot in the FACE!)

Michelle Malkin is actually using this opportunity to attack Democrats. Jeezus. The Dems will exploit this accident to smear Cheney as incapable of being trusted, weak of mind, etc

What? Cheney weak of mind? The Dems think Cheney is the puppet master Michelle, and you know that. Ridiculous.

Now, if Rumsfeld had done this…

Huffington Post has more on this “Cheney can’t be trusted” meme. (heh)
