Cheney Is A Bad Hunter, Shoots Without Looking!

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The gang of criminals in the White House, running America, can't stop doing illegal or wrong things even when on vacation. Cheney spun around and shot a fellow hunter who was behind him! I hunt. One never, ever spins around and shoots blindly. Take away this dude's guns. He ain't safe.

From CNN:
Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a companion during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, spraying the fellow hunter in the face and chest with shotgun pellets.

Harry Whittington, a millionaire attorney from Austin, was "alert and doing fine" in a Corpus Christi hospital Sunday after he was shot by Cheney on a ranch in south Texas, said Katharine Armstrong, the property's owner.
The guy he shot is the lawyer who buried all the illegal burial company garbage that a Texan regulator, May, had taken Bush to court over when he was Gov of that besotted place.

But what really riles me is this display of inept hunting skills. Aside from the web going nuts with Cheney jokes from "heck of a shot, Cheney!" to "Guns don't kill, VPs kill" and so on, an endless array of jokes. But stupid hunters are no joke. They kill people. And when Cindy Sheehan was demonstrating peacefully in front of Bush's "ranch" she was threatened by a Bush friend who claimed he was going "dove hunting" but was driving around with a crate of beer in his pickup, yelling like a fool.

I have used guns all my life. I know the rules. Never shoot until you ID your target is rule #1! Period! Any idiot can pull a trigger over and over but a hunter is supposed to be cool and collected and even if you have a buck in your sights, you first look without the sights to insure you see there is no one around nearby and that it is a buck and not Aunt Mabel you are shooting.

Every year we hear reports of "I thought he was a really big groundhawg!" or "That's a cow? I thought all deer were black and white." Ladies hanging laundry are shot because some idiot like that dentist, see a flash of white and think, "Deer tail!" and shoot as if anyone wants to shoot a deer in the ass.

That is really dumb to begin with!

Having done skeet, I know you don't turn around and shoot at chest level. PERIOD. Never. NEVER, you hear, Elmer Fudd?

Sigh. Right wing males love these clowns. Makes me wonder. Are they really that inept, too? Why do they adore these Brokeback Buffoons? I don't admire them. I can shoot guns accurately. (Bet Cheney would shoot Eddie Eagle, too.)
