VIDEO: Oops! Dick Cheney had a "major" gun malfunction in charity hunting contest


cheney whittington smaller78-year-old Texas attorney Harry Whittington and Cheney, who shot his pal  while participating in a 2006 quail hunt.

"He had a gun malfunction. But I think he is so excited and enjoyed this so much. He'll be back next year."

Wait. Cheney was "so excited and enjoyed" the malfunction? Oh, but I kid, but it is pretty much what one would expect to hear from a self-serving, dangerous, lying piece of WMD like... *Dick*.

Calm down, nobody got shot in the face... this time. At least Dick "Sharpshooter" Cheney didn't have a wardrobe malfunction, too (thank god), but his precious gun apparently failed him.

Via The Hill:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s gun malfunctioned before he could get a shot off at an antelope hunting contest in Wyoming on Sunday, according to a local ABC News affiliate. [...]

Cheney blamed “a small problem with the manufacturer.”

Cheney also blamed the September 11, 2001 attacks on Iraq. Next.

In the ABC News report, one of the captains of a competing team ribbed Cheney, saying that “the good news is that his gun didn’t work and nobody got hurt.”

How does the saying go again? Oh yeah: There are no jokes.

    Why would anyone choose to shoot an antelope? Did the antelope attack him? It's akin to shooting a stranger walking down the street.

  • It would be poetic justice if Cheney were to shoot himself.

    Cheney is a human malfunction.

  • Thank you! And I just remembered! Disqus was having issues all day, so that's why you may have not seen the comments coming in. Thanks again!

    It only said it when there were no comments visible. Sort of a zen thing: by commenting on it, I ruined the moment. (When my comment was the only one, it said there were two comments, but now it is showing four, the same as I can see.)

    ps: I've enjoyed many of the retweets I've seen from your account.

  • Where does it say that, kip? I"m not seeing it.

    Guys like "DICK" Cheney have never really hunted a day in their sorry ass lives. Paying someone else to herd animals in an area where you can shoot them is not hunting and especially when you are waiting in a warm vehicle or a heated temporary shelter. Maybe "Pastor" Swanson of Colorado is blaming the wrong people for his theory on the cause of the flooding in Colorado.

    "1 comment… No one has commented yet."
    That's the comment? (Or is it just a clever ruse to prevent FIRST!ing?)
    Yeah, it's a slow news day at my place.

  • Hate is a cancer. I'm hopeful you're not beyond help. Get well.
