    To be fair, it doesn't say he is a liberal but I can't imagine a conservative hunter doing this to himself. :D

    Gulf Hammock, Florida -- A Florida man shot himself in the foot with a crossbow while hunting on Sunday night.

    Florida Fish and Wildlife says 21-year-old John Champion was alone hunting from his ATV at the Fiber Factory Hunt Club in Levy County.

    Champion, who is a paraplegic, was reportedly cocking his crossbow when he accidentally fired the bolt through his left foot, pinning it to the floor of the ATV.

    He was unable to free his foot, and then became stuck on some brush when he attempted to drive out. Other hunters and family members eventually arrived and Champion was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

    FWC investigators say he suffered a puncture wound and several broken bones in his foot.

    Cheney Shoots Man In Hunting Accident

    (CBS/AP) Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a companion during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, spraying the fellow hunter in the face and chest with shotgun pellets.

    Harry Whittington, a millionaire attorney from Austin, was in stable condition in the intensive care unit of a Corpus Christi hospital Sunday.

    "He is stable and doing well. It was almost like he was spending time with me in my living room," said hospital administrator Peter Banko, who visited Whittington.

    Banko didn't say why Whittington was in the intensive care unit.

    The accident occurred Saturday at a ranch in south Texas where the vice president and several companions were hunting quail. It was not reported publicly by the vice president's office for nearly 24 hours, and then only after it was reported locally by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times on its Web site Sunday, CBS News correspondent Susan Roberts reports.

    Katharine Armstrong, the ranch's owner, said Sunday that Cheney was using a 28-gauge shotgun and that Whittington was about 30 yards away when he was hit. CBS News correspondent Joie Chen reports Whittington, 78, was hit in the cheek, neck and chest.

  4. Cheney hit Whittington in the cheek chest and neck.

    Mr. Champion, his own foot.

    So liberals are self destructive and republicans don't care about their neighbors?
  5. Sounds like a Darwin Award finalist...

    It's OK to shoot attorneys. Cheney gets an award.
