Washington DC (IP) - Dick Cheney accidentally shot every Democrat member of the Senate and even a couple of Republicans and one Independent.
He had brought the 12 gauge Mossberg 500 into the Senate chamber for show and tell and the gun just kept going off after reloading 8 rounds into it repeatedly. He had a strange smile on his face and did not seem angry and never broke into a sweat.
The police said it was just an accident and it could have happened to anybody. Clean up crews were kept busy throughout the malfunction and the place looked spic and span when it was all over.
Later in the day he went to the local ice cream shop with a group of Boy Scouts that were touring the capitol and bought each boy an ice cream cone and after that they all went to the local convenience store where he bought each Scout a sling shot.
