Can We Find A Worse Picture?

I wasn't going to comment on Vice President Dick Cheney's hunting accident this weekend; I figured enough people would hyperbolize this that another voice would be superfluous. However, as CQ reader Alan Blake pointed out in an e-mail, the AP had to have dug deep in their photo library to find a picture of Cheney with this scary look on his face:

Austin attorney Harry Whittington survived being hit with the shotgun blast from Cheney, only suffering some lacerations and bruises from the pellets. Cheney has a medical staff and an ambulance on standby wherever he goes, and Whittington got immediate medical attention. Even though Whittington is no spring chicken -- he's 78 -- he's expected to make a full recovery.

I'd expectg a lot of Dick Cheney jokes in the next few days, and perhaps the AP started with this selection for the wire-service report.
