Hunter shot by Cheney has heart attack

Anyone get that gut feeling that maybe Whittington had his head blown off by our Vice President on Saturday and they're just breaking the news gently?

The 78-year-old lawyer who was shot by Vice President Dick Cheney in a hunting accident has some birdshot lodged in his heart and he had a "minor heart attack," a hospital official said Tuesday.

Birdshot lodged in his heart?! That doesn't sound much like a "stable" considtion.

He said there was an irregularity in the heartbeat caused by a birdshot pellet, and doctors performed a cardiac catheterization. Whittington expressed a desire to leave the hospital, but Banko said he would probably stay for another week.

Of course he wants to leave the hospital. Cheney knows where he is. He come back to finish the job. You don't understand. The Vice President is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

Whittington had initially been placed in intensive care. He had been moved to a "step-down unit" Monday after doctors decided to leave several birdshot pellets lodged in his skin rather than try to remove them.

The man has a pellet lodged in his fucking heart. And what the fuck is a "step-down unit"? Sounds like the last stop before the hearse.

That's a very good point. Was Cheney hunting while intoxicated?

I was under the impression that was a part of the hunting experience.

Mad Man, I think this story is only going to get worse. I think this is a story everybody can relate to in Texas. when anybody in Texas shots someone, the police are right at your door and they get arrested, being the VP go's way over their heads and they think everybody should get arrested,
and can't understand what the rest of the country already knows...Cheney is running the country...Dick head square brain won't be touched in the long run.
