Questions mount over Cheney shooting

Guns don't shoot people, the Vice President of the United States shoots people. Now I know I did a story on this yesterday but now, instead of people shocked and awed by Cheney emptying birdshot into the side of his friends face, now they're questioning just how come it took over 24 hours for the story to be told.
Well, that's easy, it's because the Vice President of the United States shot someone in the face. They might want to get a handle on that story before it hits the shelves and airwaves. You know, to save us the embarassment of having an idiot for a President and a bloodthirsty maniac as a Vice President.

The man shot by US Vice-President Dick Cheney on Saturday in a hunting accident is reported to be in a stable condition in a Texas hospital, but debate rages in Washington over why news of the shooting was suppressed by the Bush Administration until Sunday morning.

Are we really all that surprised that the fact Vice President Dick Cheney blasted Harry Whittington, a 78-year-old millionaire Texas lawyer, in the face is something that maybe they didn't want the press to know until all the facts were in? I mean, it took us a day or two to hear that President Bush choked himself unconscious eating some pretzels. Maybe that was so they could know whether he suffered any brain damage from the incident. (I still can't tell if he did or not)

The news came not from the Administration or Mr Cheney's office, but from one of the owners of the ranch where the shooting took place who contacted the local paper.

Yeah, so?

There also were questions about why Mr Cheney's Secret Service detail turned away a local sheriff's deputy, who turned up at the Armstrong ranch at which Mr Cheney had been hunting to investigate the shooting.

I wouldn't put any form of gun in this man's hands...why couldn't it have been the president...we would've killed two birds with one stone.
