    Looks like Cheney has successfully made it look like an accident. Bush has best be careful not to piss off his VP.

    Obviously you people know nothing about quail hunting. When they get flushed out they fly very low to the ground. In those conditions hunting accidents are going to happen time and again.

    The article even says that the guy didn't signal to Cheney that he was behind him.

    I find that to be the amusing part of it ... it's made out to be the other hunter's fault.

    Not that it necessary isn't, it's just amusing.

    Well that's the problem. The article doesn't mention if Cheney or the other hunter announced that they were flushing out another group of quail. If they didn't then Cheney and the other hunter made a mistake. Then again, the quail do make noise when they fly out of hiding.

    Either way, hunting accidents like this happen. It's not like anyone was trying to kill anybody or being stupid, that's why it's called an accident.

    You say that as if I should be embarrassed about it.

    I understand what happened, but any logical explanation deserves to come after the obligatory "OMG, Cheney shot somebody in the face!" jokes.
