“Cheney Accidentally Shoots Fellow Hunter in Texas”

“CHENEY ACCIDENTALLY SHOOTS FELLOW HUNTER IN TEXAS”….I tried to write my own headline, but, really ? how do you top this?

Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and injured a man during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, his spokeswoman said today. Harry Whittington, 78, was “alert and doing fine” [although still hospitalized] after Cheney sprayed Whittington with shotgun pellets on Saturday.

Fantastic. Forget everything I’ve said before. How can you help but feel safer with these guys running the country?
