CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (CNN) -- Harry Whittington said Friday he was sorry for what Dick Cheney and his family has "had to go through" after the vice president shot him in a weekend hunting accident.


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.


Is this some sort of bizarre Republican ritual? Get shot in the face by the Vice President and then apologize for it?

"And then I shot 'im RIGHT in the face!"
