How thoughtful of Dick Cheney to share a hobby with his friend in a way that will stay with him for the rest of his life. He's always been such a giver, especially for someone without a beating heart.

Or a conscience.

Via The Daily:

Six years after the incident, Whittington, 84, is still riddled with the bird shot Cheney accidentally hit him with. Some 30 odd pellets are lodged in the lining of his heart, his gums, his hand, his forehead, and the bridge of his nose.

They say my chest looks like New York City at night,” he said, of doctors looking at his X-rays.

You know how he celebrated the sixth anniversary of his being a human Cheney shooting target? With a "ceremonial consumption of a quail snack."

    Lot of fun to celebrate Cheney shooting his friend in the face. But what bothers me, is he didn't report it for how many days? I ask, is he still friends with Cheney. Well only Laffy could fine these things. If you read your messages, thanks, love the Political Carnival.

  • What made me loath Wittington and all Republican sycophants after the incident was Wittington blubbering in public and apologizing to Cheney for getting in the way of his birdshot. I mean, seriously, how emasculated do you have to be to turn this around and make Cheney the victim? What a fucking eunuch.
