Cheney shoots lawyer

And a friend.

In true neocon fashion Cheney has not issued an explanation or apology because, as we all know, the Bushies never apologize for anything, even when they shoot friends in the face.

Reddheddd at Firedoglake details the absurdities in the official coverup, er, story. She’s an experienced shooter, hunter, and NRA member.

Among her other observations:

(Reports said) Whittington “came up from behind the vice president and the other hunter and didn’t signal them or indicate to them or announce himself,” Armstrong said.

Well, now this is just assinine. Quail are jumpy little birds at the best of times, and you don’t shout out “Hey guys, I’m coming up behind you.” when your hunting buddies are closing in on their quarry. That will get you a smack upside the head.
