Sounds very American to me.

Of course it happens a lot, because the world is full of idiots. If someone else shot a guy on a hunting trip I'd call him f*cking retarded too.

I'll read it later.
My eyes hurt.

They're cracking down on him because it indicates towards the level of intelligence embodied on perhaps the second most powerful man in America (ignoring the people who pay the bribe monies)

No, it's different because the guy has no real chance of dying, and really wasn't hurt badly at all. You would know that if you cared to read the article you linked.

"It broke the skin," she said of the shotgun pellets. "It knocked him silly. But he was fine. He was talking. His eyes were open. It didn't get in his eyes or anything like that.
Quote:

Cheney's spokeswoman, Lea Anne McBride, said the vice president met with Whittington at the hospital on Sunday. Cheney "was pleased to see that he's doing fine and in good spirits," she said.
He got shot with a pellet gun from 30 yards away. I'm sorry that I won't lose sleep over this tonight.

The point isn't that he didn't kill him, the point is that he shot him in the first place.

The point is that the guy isn't hurt seriously, and that in hunting this isn't that odd of an event. Especially when you have an elderly man who has been through quite a few health problems and shouldn't really be hunting because of his condition but wants to because it's a hobby of his.

That's truly the point. The guy is not an "idiot".

No, he is an idiot. As you said, he is "an elderly man who has been through quite a few health problems and shouldn't really be hunting because of his condition". It's not like golf, if you f*ck up, you could kill someone. Anyone who puts another person's life in danger because they "don't want to give up" a hobby is an idiot. I just can't help but laugh how typical your reply is. He only shot someone, it's not like he killed him. People get shot all the time. No wonder the US has such a rediculously high amount of accidental shootings.
