Dick Cheney Watch 2

The man Dick Cheney shot has apologized for being shot by the Vice President. "Accidents do and will happen," said Whittington. Of course, an accident involving a shotgun is a little more serious then say an accident involving a strap-on and insufficient lube. But nobody's accused Cheney of ever using lube.

Dick Cheney told a pre-selected crowd of Wyoming Republicans that he was glad Whittington didn't die. He also thanked them for the warm welcome. But maybe they were scared? President Bush says he is satisfied with the way Dick Cheney behaved after shooting a man in the face.
