The Guy That Dick Cheney Shot Never Got An Apology

Now, that’s a pretty messed up headline considering you got shot in the face by the Vice President of the United States.
But, that’s exactly the reality that Harry Whittington lives in now. He was shot by the vice president back in February 2006 during a quail hunting accident. The Washington Post caught up with Whittington recently and ran a pretty long feature story on him.
The gist of the incident is that Whittington, a lawyer by trade, got messed up pretty badly. He was sprayed with pellets because hunting ammo is different than regular bullets. So, he had metal lodged near his vocal chords, heart, face, hairline, and blood was everywhere. He spent at least a week in the hospital and a couple of weeks on the mend. Reporters camped outside of his house and office. He got major offers to be on national TV to discuss the incident. But, Whittington turned everything down.
And after all that, Whittington never filed a lawsuit(AND HE’S A LAWYER!!). Still, he admits without saying it verbatim that the former vice president NEVER APOLOGIZED for all that sh*t he went through. Cheney knows he is a cold-hearted, mean-spirited asshole when he wants to be…
