It’s a special 3 year anniversary.
Harry M. Whittington (born March 3, 1927) is the American lawyer and real estate investor who received international media attention on February 11, 2006. He was shot in the face by Vice President Dick Cheney while hunting quail with two women on a ranch in Corpus Christi, Texas.
On February 14, 2006, Whittington suffered a non-fatal heart attack because at least one lead-shot pellet lodged in or near his heart.
Cheney holed up in his man-size safe like a little sissy until finally being coaxed out on February 15th by Fox News. Cheney told the interviewing reporter the experience was the most horrible thing HE had ever been through.
Before Dick, a sitting Vice President has not shot a man since the Aaron Burr-Alexander Hamilton duel. That was 1804.
