The most interesting news that broke during last night’s rout was that Jose Canceco was accidentally shot. Now we have more details:

Actress and model Leila Knight told the Daily News that Canseco was cleaning one of his four guns in the couple’s kitchen when it discharged and blew off the middle finger of his left hand.

His girlfriend said Canseco “blew away an artery and a big bone chunk,” and that even if they do reattach it, it’ll be useless.

Without getting into the political, just sit back and absorb the notion that we live in a country in which a person with Jose Canseco’s judgment and responsibility is allowed to own four guns.
