It just doesn't get much funnier
than Dick Cheney accidentally shooting his friend while hunting. This stuff writes itself. Well, if we overlook the journalist who filed the story of course.
According to a Cheney adviser
"The vice president was concerned," said Mary Matalin, a Cheney adviser who spoke with him yesterday morning. "He felt badly, obviously. On the other hand, he was not careless or incautious or violate any of the [rules]. He didn't do anything he wasn't supposed to do."How many shooters out there would agree? Let's see, never point a gun at anything you don't intend to shoot and always identify your target are two simple rules that come to mind.
