Cheney's target leaves hospital

The man unfortunately caught between Dick Cheney and his quailtard targets was released from the hospital this afternoon.

He gave a brief statement to the throng of reporters in Corpus Christi, which included an admission that the incident was an accident:

"We all assume certain risks in whatever we do. Regardless of how experienced, careful and dedicated we are, accidents do and will happen. And that's what happened last Friday," Whittington said, meaning on Saturday.

"I regret that I couldn't meet you earlier but you can see what a lucky person I am," he said, apparently referring to the bruises and marks on his face and neck.
Whittington also took this opportunity to exemplify the Christian ideal of turning the other cheek (insert cheek pun here), by apologizing to the man who shot him:
"My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this past week," Whittington said. "We hope that he will continue to come to Texas and seek the relaxation that he deserves.
