The man accidentally shot by U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney said the quail hunting incident was nothing more than an accident, and he apologized to Cheney and his family for causing a ruckus.
This is why these Republicans becomes shells of human beings... the repeated insults to their dignity and personhood they are forced to swallow, so as to serve the needs of power. Whittington quotes flip-side...
He also apologized for the media attention Cheney has received because of the incident.
"My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice-President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week. We send our respect to them as they deal with situations that are much more serious than what we've had to deal with this week."
I'm so sorry I look like a quail.
I'm so sorry you had that beer. Or two.
I'm so sorry that you swung your gun around and blew holes in me because you didn't know where I was, when it's standard hunting safety practice to make absolutely sure you know where your companions are.
I'm so sorry that, driven by ambition and lust for power, you rose to prominence in this nation, becoming Vice President of the United States, so that when you accidentally shot someone while hunting, it was a media event and there was a ruckus.
I'm so sorry that I have a nervous system and therefore feel pain, and am not immortal and so can be in danger, because otherwise your shooting me wouldn't matter and it wouldn't be a story.
.........somewhere inside, his soul is screaming.........
