He's Not Dead

Harry Whittington, the 78-year-old man shot by Vice President Dick Cheney was released today. He looked pretty good.

He also said this happened on Friday and urged the press to keep up with their good work. Curious.

It's the damn Media, if you're going to blame someone, at least put the blame on the correct entity!

Why can't they just leave it alone, this happens to lots of people.

I still maintain that if you want to continually blame the lib media, then let's do away with the freedom of the press and create "BBN" Bush Broadcasting Network. Boy, I bet the "news" would REALLY flow then. AND, Mary Matlin could anchor the nightly. news

The man took a shot to the head and body. He then had a heart attack due to floating birdshot near his heart. He spent a week in the hospital. And some of you sluff off his problems as "no problem"?

I suggest there would have been much less fuss in the media if Cheney had just 'fessed up and reported the incident to the police and submitted to their questioning - at the time of the shooting. His avoidance and spinning only caused him more justified problems.

The guy is alive, so THERE. ;)

However, I agree, Dick could've saved ALL of us alot of grief if he'd just faced the problem head-on, with open communication.

His side of the story was "handled" by the administration WAY too much.

I am glad he will live--that way I won't feel bad laughing at all the jokes! I just gotta wonder who carried Dick's gun for him. This has got to be right up there with the VP Dan's "potatoe".. Remember it's not guns that shoot people....

Did you see that Dick had a "few beers" before the incident, that it was nearly sundown, and he was shooting downhill into the setting sun?

All I can say is....hmmmm.....

SURELY that would have been reported on "BBN"...

I am sure all of you who complain about lack of Cheney immediately reporting this to the press and the world would have called up Joe Duty and the WCM to come take your picture had this happened to you?
