too bad it wasnt the other way around.

and they waited more than 22 hours to tell the press. im sure Cheney's people were having a heart attack when this happened. the bush administration is the absolute worst group of fuck ups.

list of fuck ups:
bush, katrina, plame, iraq, abranoff, cheney, libby, rove, frist, delay, health care, schools, college tuition up, gas prices, outright lying to americans, scottie the gay press secretary - yes...he's gay, alito, friendship with ken lay, cheney shooting his hunting buddy.....etc

how come this fuck cant be impeached? clinton at least lied once and still got the ol' impeachment.

sorry to rant on this board, but its true.

You left out the "planted" White House reporter that threw the softball questions; the one with the gay-porn website. That was another favorite moment, when he got "outed"...

And all they caught him lying about was fucking (well, not even that!) the intern!

I'm with you, MITCH.
It's crazy. AND, Cheney can't even tell a quail from an old geezer!
(It's a wonder HE didn't have a heart attack.)
Posted: Feb 13, 2006 12:53 am
Don't think I did. Does it have to do with the conspiracy theory about the MK Ultra/kidnapping deal? I still thank the Goner board for that one. I heart conspiracy theories. Total crazings.

thanks for the l.u.v.

Armstrong said she was watching from a car while Cheney, Whittington and another hunter got out of the vehicle to shoot at a covey of quail.
Whittington shot a bird and went to retrieve it in the tall grass, while Cheney and the third hunter walked to another spot and discovered a second covey.
Whittington “came up from behind the vice president and the other hunter and didn’t signal them or indicate to them or announce himself,” Armstrong said.

I'm not a big hunter myself, but it seems to me a good idea not to just walk up on somebody who's holding a loaded fucking shotgun, right after they flushed the covey. Cheney may be many things, but he's also an experienced hunter, and I don't figure that this Whittington guy is one himself.

Lame explanation from the 8th lede writethru ...

McBride said the vice president’s office did not tell reporters about the accident Saturday because they were deferring to Armstrong to handle the announcement of what happened on her property.

Note also that Cheney has an ambulance on call at all times, I suppose in case he has his fifteenth heart attack ...

i love the story that these birds he hunts are farm raised for groups like cheneys. he killed more than 70 birds in one day, apparently.

Posted: Feb 13, 2006 6:00 am
What makes you think it was an accident. He really needed to take the edge off this hunting trip.
Posted: Feb 13, 2006 7:25 am
one more heart attack for Cheney..!!!!! also known as "The Big One". USA cant wait!
Posted: Feb 13, 2006 11:23 am
"...the vice president has got a lot of medical people around him and so they were right there...The vice president has got an ambulance on call, so the ambulance came."

Makes me think Cheney's got someone wheeling around one of those I.V. holders while another guy's keeping an eye on the colostomy bag...all while the Veep is hunting.
Is this guy REALLY in that bad of shape?
Posted: Feb 13, 2006 1:45 pm
i love the story that these birds he hunts are farm raised
More here.
Fat heart attack fuck couldn't shoot the proverbial fish in a barrel. Bush and his farm, Cheney and his hunting...welcome to the simulacrum...

Well Dick. Heh heh. You didn't manage to finish the job ol' buddy. He could still squeel on us. What else did he say anyway after he said he wanted out? Didn't he know that was a non-impossibility situation?
His capital ran out. I best call Rummy to see if he can send a real assassin over there to that hospital. You best go on back to your vice-prez lair and wait it out.

That's almost exactly what I told 16 this morning.

Everyone's gotta set their Dick straight sometimes don't they?

Pay attention to the way the NRA works it's damage control. Dick is the NRA's next C. Heston. They love this guy. Now that he's broken a NRA commandment they'll try to distance themselves from him. To shoot birds you have to trail the bird in flight , get a good bead on and then shoot. For him to shoot a guy in the face that came up from behind him and then not to say anything for 18 hours or more is really fishy. He probably wishes now that he went fishin' instead. He may have shot the guy so the news will stray away from "Plamegate". To my knowledge he is the first twice convicted drunk driver to get elected to the VP.

The guy he shot makes a living by buying small Mom&Pop funeral shops keeping the name, and then monopolizing the local funeral market so they can drasticly raise prices of funerals. The dude would have been a goner if Dick had a rifle instead of a shotgun loaded with small bird shot.

I think the real story here is that there are many red state voters that are still very supportive of Cheney. They said that about 3 months ago he had an approval rating of 20%. Why anybody would continue to support this scary human is beyond me. Most people don't survive 4 heart attacks. Maybe he isn't human.

Fun facts from my favorite conspiracy blog, Rigourous Intuition:
Reportedly this was the first occasion for the victim, Austin "millionaire attorney" Harry Whittington, 78, to go hunting with Cheney. Naturally enough he's a Republican, and not surprisingly he's a Bush appointee: a few years ago, then-Governor George Bush named him to the Texas Funeral Services Commission. If that means anything to you, it probably means Funeralgate. TFSC was the investigating body on the case of Service Corporation International, headed by Bush family friend Robert Waltrip, which had been "recycling graves" and throwing corpses in the woods. Eliza May was the director of the TFSC when the investigation began, and was fired, she claimed, on account of pressure from the Governor's office to help his friend at SCI. Her replacement? Harry Whittington. (As we've noted, SCI has gone on to better things, like being tasked to disappear the dead of Louisiana.)
Whittington was shot by the Vice President on the happy Republican hunting grounds of the 50,000 acre Armstrong Ranch of South Texas. The ranch had belonged to late Bush "Pioneer" Tobin Armstrong, who died last October, and is now the property of daughter Katherine. Perhaps the most interesting family biography belongs to Tobin's widow and Katherine's mother Anne, who advised Nixon, served as Ford's British Ambassador, and "approved covert actions on the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board under Reagan." Perhaps also worth noting is that Anne was a Halliburton director when the company first hired Dick Cheney.

Apparently, Whittington has suffered a minor heart attack from some birdshot lodged in his heart.

here's the heart attack story. also, there's some great stuff on slate.com!

Hunter Shot by Cheney Has Heart Attack
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The 78-year-old lawyer who was shot by Vice President Dick Cheney in a hunting accident has some birdshot lodged in his heart and he had a "minor heart attack," a hospital official said Tuesday.

Peter Banko, the hospital administrator at Christus Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-Memorial, said Harry Whittington had the heart attack early Tuesday while being evaluated.

He said there was an irregularity in the heartbeat caused by a birdshot pellet, and doctors performed a cardiac catheterization. Whittington expressed a desire to leave the hospital, but Banko said he would probably stay for another week.

Whittington, a prominent Republican attorney from Austin, was accidentally sprayed with shotgun pellets when Cheney was aiming for a quail Saturday.

Whittington had initially been placed in intensive care. He had been moved to a "step-down unit" Monday after doctors decided to leave several birdshot pellets lodged in his skin rather than try to remove them.

A Texas Parks and Wildlife Department report said Whittington was retrieving a downed bird and stepped out of the hunting line he was sharing with Cheney. "Another covey was flushed and Cheney swung on a bird and fired, striking Whittington in the face, neck and chest at approximately 30 yards," the report said.

The wildlife department issued a report Monday that found the main factor contributing to the accident was a "hunter's judgment factor." No other secondary factors were found to have played a role.

oh my god
oh my god
oh my god

I can't believe this cover up bullshit...I bet Bush crapped his pants sometime last year and we still haven't heard about it!!!!!!
Posted: Feb 14, 2006 7:49 pm
This guy has been dead for days-- they are trying to figure out a way to tell the public so Cheney won't be brought up on Involuntary Manslaughter charges.
Posted: Feb 14, 2006 7:58 pm
I heard Cheney actually turned him into a Zombie and he will vote the way the Evil Genius tells him now

He plans on bringing a member of Congress out every weekend from now on.

Cheney shot his 78 year old victim in the heart and the guy also had a heart attack.

Over at the White House and across the Bush family, that's a big joke:

President Bush's spokesman quipped Tuesday that the burnt orange school colors of the University of Texas championship football team that was visiting the White House shouldn't be confused for hunter's safety wear.

"The orange that they're wearing is not because they're concerned that the vice president may be there," joked White House press secretary Scott McClellan, following the lead of late-night television comedians. "That's why I'm wearing it."

The president's brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, took a similar jab after slapping an orange sticker on his chest from the Florida Farm Bureau that read, "No Farmers, No Food."

"I'm a little concerned that Dick Cheney is going to walk in," the governor cracked during an appearance in Tampa Monday.

I'm sure that 78 year old guy is laughing his butt off, too. He's back in intensive care according to the AP.

God.....these guys are complete fuckin' losers

IMPEACH CHENEY! the bush regime would crumble down around him...
Posted: Feb 14, 2006 9:52 pm
Nope, just a citation, apparently. The target will get one, too.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says Vice President Dick Cheney and the man he accidentally shot will be issued warning citations.

The agency says Cheney and 78-year-old Harry Whittington of Austin didn't have required upland game bird stamps as they hunted for quail in South Texas.
Posted: Feb 14, 2006 11:37 pm
This may have already been mentioned, but another funny tidbit about this "hunting" they were up to was that the ranch was STOCKED with quail! That ain't hunting!!!!
Posted: Feb 15, 2006 5:25 pm

impeach these fuckers.....for christ sakes...OH WAIT...they didn't get blowjobs...that's apparently the only reason for impeachment in the USA.

funniest comment i've seen so far:

Vice-president and erstwhile dark lord Dick Cheney got his first taste of armed combat this weekend, using his beloved shotgun to shoot 78 year-old Texas lawyer and fellow hunter Harry Whittington. Unconfirmed reports state Cheney was briefly hospitalized following the incident when, overwhelmed by the thrill of live human prey, his heart began beating on its own for the fist time since 1978…
Posted: Feb 16, 2006 4:32 am
It's funny, everyone thought Dick Cheney was going to die at any second, now he's out fucking shooting people! This guy is for sure the anti-christ.
Posted: Feb 16, 2006 8:59 pm
George Bush doesn't like black people.

Dick Cheney doesn't like people.
Posted: Feb 17, 2006 10:27 pm

Harry Whittington said Friday he was sorry for what Dick Cheney and his family have "had to go through"

So this is all Whittington's fault?!?!? No appology from Cheney!???!! WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?
Posted: Feb 17, 2006 10:32 pm
the Government is NEVER wrong......always remember that
Posted: Feb 17, 2006 11:02 pm
Whittington was retrieving a downed bird
Why was he doing this? They couldn't spring for a labrador retriever or something? There's a reason they have dogs to do these jobs. They're much lower to the ground.
