Vice President Dick Cheney will spend Election Day hunting in South Dakota, his press secretary said Sunday.
It will be Cheney’s first hunting trip since February, when he accidentally shot a hunting companion while attempting to fire at a covey of quail on a private ranch in Texas.
Cheney, who voted early in Wyoming, will work Monday morning at the White House, and then depart Washington for South Dakota, said Lea Anne McBride, his press secretary.
Tuesday’s trip, to a private hunting lodge near Pierre, is an annual outing, said McBride. She said he spent Election Day at the same lodge four years ago.
Cheney will be accompanied by his daughter, Mary, and his political director, Mel Raines, who will help him keep track of the election returns, McBride said.
Dick Cheney with a shotgun, a lesbian and a political hack go on a hunting trip… the jokes just write themselves folks.
