Per CTV National News (Canada) --

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.........

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
