Is the Cheney Shooting a Big Story?

Justin Gardner at Donklephant points out that some on the right think Cheney's accidental shooting of a friend while hunting could be a liability for the Vice President.

I doubt that's true. We knew Cheney liked to hunt. We know hunting accidents can happen to even the best hunters. Without trying to minimize the seriousness of this story, it's really a lot like when Bush fell off his bike. Accidents are a part of life even for the most powerful among us.

I'm no fan of Cheney's, but I wouldn't dream of holding something like this against the man. Unless there's some part of the story we don't know, I suspect this will blow over without the White House having to do damage control.
