Vice Presidential Hunting Accident

For the record, I invented this joke and am taking full credit for it.

"My opinion of the Vice President has changed."

"Oh, yes? How?"

"I used to think he was a liar. Now I can see he's a straight shooter."

This was literally the first thing to pop into this Editor's mind when he learned that the Vice President had accidentally shot a 78-year-old companion in the chest and head while quail hunting. We all have our faults.
The victim, who had a mild heart attack several days ago because of a bullet in his chest, is recovering in a Texas hospital.
The Vice President was criticized for not having his office make the information public until a full day after the incident took place. Some of this anger seems to be misguided, as the Vice President did have a friend of his make a public statement and did not actively attempt to conceal the accident.

As simple as it is, that's the best freakin' joke on the whole non-story that I've heard.

Thanks for the laugh!
