The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and injured a man during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, his spokeswoman said Sunday.

Harry Whittington, 78, was "alert and doing fine" after Cheney sprayed him with shotgun pellets on Saturday while the two were hunting at the Armstrong Ranch in south Texas, said property owner Katharine Armstrong.
It's not often that you get a metaphor gift like this. Enjoy.

Update: Courtesy of Pandagon, I'm happy to present this inside scoop about the true identity of the man Cheney shot: Scooter Libby.

"Fortunately, 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."

Cheney walks around with a posse - EMT personnel, an ambulance, pharmacist, etc. Comes in very handy when you accidentally shoot a friend.

Damn, that is some fine work. I have a soft spot for West World anyway, but you attached the face of the Smirktron3000 seamlessly.

Even the ED-209 from Robocop had an off-day, leave Mecha-Cheney alone.

Actually, if it was between Libby and Cheney, I would think Libby would be the more likely one to do the shooting.
