"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Cheney shoots friend

By now you've all heard about Torturosaurus Dick Cheney shooting his friend and hunting partner because a quail came between them. And you've heard the bit about the old guy having a heart attack from a disloged pellet in his heart. So, just to be sure you're not news deprived, here is my selection for the summary.

Questions here about the delay in revealing the shooting. That subject is still not addressed, in spite of the hard time Scott McClellan got at the Monday press gaggle, regardless of his best lies and evasions. And even more questions brought up in this video from Countdown. (Sorry that link isn't direct, you'll have to click on the video link for "Duck, it's Dick" because I haven't learnt as yet how to post the direct to the video link.) Questions like, why drive this guy further to a country hospital than the short distance to the city hospital? If Whittington dies, could Cheney be charged with Negligent Homicide? And others.

Meanwhile, there is some humor to be found in it all, here, and on Amazon. And Cheney will do a damage control liar's interview on TV, to be found on FOX of course. Cheney doing an interview? Must be some serious shit still covered up if he's getting pushed into the public eye like that. I wonder what Whittington did to deserve a personal blast from the VP? He's allegedly tied to Abramoff, but that by itself shouldn't warrant a personally delivered blast in the face.

What a reflection on Cheney's attitude toward the world, eh? In such a hurry to pull the trigger on his target that he can't see the collateral damage it will cause. Reminiscent of his and Bush's attempts to dominate the world by force like Iraq, isn't it? And, in a reflection on the pursuit of Osama - there's no word on the quail, so it apparently escaped. Dick will no doubt say "I'm not concerned about the quail, I don't think about the quail, I'm busy protecting the people". HA
