Whittington is released from the hospital, and apologizes for being shot in the face. Seriously:
Whittington, wearing a suit and tie, appeared with several bruises on his face and neck. His discharge from the hospital came earlier than expected.
"My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week," Whittington said.
Cheney, reports said, was not in a forgiving mood. "Whittington can go f**k himself," said the Vice President, apparently still seething from the incident last weekend when Whittington selfishly inserted his face in the trajectory of the pellets fired by Cheney at a covey of quail.
