Cheney Shoots Man On Texas Quail Hunting Trip"Quails," huh? So that's what they're calling the poor suckers they're taking from Gitmo and turning loose in Shitsville, Texas for the amusement of the ruling classes.
Man Wounded In Accidental Shooting Said To Be "Alert And Doing Fine"
WASHINGTON - 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.
The Vice President reportedly shouted, "Go fuck yourself," as he unloaded both barrels of his automatic rifle at the man, who, according to a senior administration official, may have ties to Al Qaeda. The victim was said to be in his last throes in a Dallas hospital.
The Vice President reportedly told witnesses he mistook the man for his former Chief of Staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.
President Bush, speaking from his nearby ranch in Crawford, Texas, defended Cheney's actions. "The Constitution gives the Vice President the inherent power to shoot as many guys as he deems necessary to protect the 'merican peoples," the president told reporters. "We're at war. Shoot first, and ask questions -- asking questions, isn't, you can't -- you can't ask questions if you're shooting, shooting in the war on terror, OK? And I believe that, and so do the Vice President."
The sad thing is, shooting old people in the face represents an improvement in this administration's policy toward senior citizens.
Cheney also suffered injuries in the incident, leaving him disfigured:
Anyway, the last guy to get shot by a sitting vice president wound up on the $10 bill. America...202 years between vice presidential shootings.
