Whittington Speaks, Embarrasses Dems and Media

Once again, the liberals take a gift and squander it. The VEEP shot a hunting buddy and his opponents end up looking bad. How damning is this story?…

Man shot by Cheney: ‘Accidents do and will happen’

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (CNN) — Harry Whittington said Friday he was sorry for what Dick Cheney and his family has “had to go through” after the vice president shot him in a weekend hunting accident.

The 78-year-old Bush-Cheney campaign donor [they never give up huh? 😉 -ed] spoke briefly to reporters upon his release from a Corpus Christi hospital, but he took no questions.

Cheney sprayed Whittington with birdshot on his face and upper torso in Saturday’s hunting accident. Whittington suffered a mild heart attack Tuesday, doctors said, after a piece of birdshot in his body migrated to a heart muscle.

“We all assume certain risks in whatever we do,” Whittington said. “Whatever activities we pursue and regardless of how experienced, careful and dedicated we are, accidents do and will happen.”

Whittington, wearing a suit and tie, appeared with several bruises on his face and neck. His discharge from the hospital came earlier than expected.

“My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week,” Whittington said.

So the guy who got shot in the face with a shotgun, then had a heart attack is apologizing to Cheney for the crap the liberals put him thru?!?!?! How bad does that make them look?

The liberals -and by that I mean the Dems and the MSM- overshot this event more than Cheney did.

What they should have done is tried to make him look stupid a la Dan Quayle and the “potatoe” episode. Instead they went postal and ended up shooting themselves in the foot. (all puns intended)

That’s what happens when you let the kook wing run the party.
