Vice President Dick Cheney accidentaly shot his hunting companion, Austin attorney Harry Whittington over the weekend while hunting quail in Texas.
Harry Whittington, an Austin attorney, was in stable condition late Sunday in the intensive care unit at a Corpus Christi hospital, where he was flown after the shooting late Saturday afternoon at the Armstrong Ranch.
The vice president visited with Whittington and his wife before returning to Washington on Sunday. Cheney "was pleased to see that he's doing fine and in good spirits," said Cheney spokeswoman Lea Anne McBride.
Unlike Senator Ted Kennedy, who in June of 1969 killed a young woman who he was having an adulterous affair with while driving under the influence of alcohol, VP Cheney had the decency to see to it that his friend was alright rather then leave him to die in the brush as Senator Kennedy did when he abandoned his lover in the car for 8 hours before reporting the accident to the authorities AFTER her body had been found in the back seat of the car.
I guess it's a good thing that Mr. Whittington was hunting with Cheney instead of Former President Bill Clinton. Bird shot is probably better then the load that Clinton would have hit him with.
Let the truth be told, I would rather go hunting with Vice President Dick Cheney any day, then to go driving ANYWHERE with Senator Ted Kennedy!
