Wearing orange, governor's safe from VP

Jeb Bush made light of Dick Cheney's accidental shooting while in Tampa Monday.

TAMPA - Gov. Jeb Bush took a rare opportunity to preempt late night talk show hosts Monday when he appeared at the Florida State Fair Governor's Day Luncheon.

Like other guests, the governor was given a "No Farmers, no Food" sticker from the Florida Farm Bureau.

Opening his remarks before the 1,000 or so gathered, Bush made a show of placing the sticker on his chest.

The sticker was bright orange - like a hunting jacket.

"I'm a little concerned that Dick Cheney is going to walk in," he quipped.
