Vice President Accidentally Shoots Hunting Buddy

Vice President Richard Cheney <a href="http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/02/12/D8FNRALG0.html">accidentally shot Harry Whittington</a>, a millionaire Texan, while the two were on a quail hunting trop this past weekend. Mr. Whittington is in stable condition, and recovering well, after getting peppered with the shotgun fire.

I could be wrong, but this might well be the first time a sitting Vice President shot and wounded someone since July 11, 1801, when <a href="http://bioguide.congress.gov/scripts/biodisplay.pl?index=B001133">Aaron Burr dueled with Alexander Hamilton</a>. Let’s hope and pray that Mr. Whittington does much better than the late lamented Mr. Hamilton.
