What's a little gunshot among friends?

Cheney accidentally shot his companion while quail hunting on a ranch in Texas this weekend. The guy he shot is okay, although he was peppered with shotgun pellets over his cheek, neck and chest. These things happen but here's the scary part.
[E]mergency personnel traveling with Cheney tended to Whittington, holding his face and cleaning up the blood.

"Fortunately, the vice president has got a lot of medical people around him and so they were right there and probably more cautious than we would have been," she said. "The vice president has got an ambulance on call, so the ambulance came."
Think about that. The number two man in our government travels with an ambulance. Hard to believe anybody ever seriously considers him as a contender in 08.

Your buddy, Don Surber @ Pyjamas, Media had some links about this incident and one was pretty funny. Wisbang reports that the victim is the presiding commissioner of the Texas Funeral Service Commission.

Have you guys seen this (via Majikthise)?

Turns out, Cheney is quite dangerous when his "hunting trips" are not canned-animal excursions.

Oh, and I think it is time that we all quit complaining about Cheney's hunting trips with Justice Scalia.

Midwestern, I guess it's a good thing that Dick got those five deferments after all!
