Friday, February 17, 2006
(SNN Corpus Christi) The lawyer shot by Vice President Dick Cheney during a hunting trip was discharged from a hospital Friday. He immediately issued an apology for causing the vice president so much trouble.
"My family and I are deeply sorry for everything Vice President Cheney and his family have had to deal with."
"My family and I are deeply sorry for everything Vice President Cheney and his family have had to deal with," said Harry Whittington. "We hope that he will continue to come to Texas and seek the relaxation that he deserves." Whittington went on to say that he thought it would be a pleasure to be shot by the vice president again. He also said he sent his love and respect to Cheney's family, who are also welcome to get loaded and shoot him any time that they want.
Cheney, in Wyoming which has no extradition treaty with Texas, expressed some relief about his hunting partner's recovery. "I'm the guy who pulled the trigger and shot my friend, and it felt good, and I look forward to doing it again" Cheney said in the interview.
The Austin attorney went on to say that the vice president is constantly surrounded by "a cloud of misfortune and sadness that is not easy to explain, especially with those who are not familiar with the great sport of quail hunting."
maybe Cheney can go get some people shootin' in over in Iraq. Tons of people to shoot at there.
Isn't this what they would call a "friendly" fire incident? Or this some sort of asshole initiation thing? First I shoot you, then I penetrate you, then I jizz on you?
