Shot Happens

If I got a face full of buckshot from my friend, even if it were completely accidental, I'm not so sure I'd be apologizing to him for the grief he'd be getting. Either Harry Whittington is the most magnanimous of men, or Dick Cheney really has the power to warp men's minds for evil purposes the moonbats think he does:

"This past weekend encompassed all of us in a cloud of misfortune and a sadness that is not easy to explain, especially to those who are not familiar with the great sport of quail hunting," said Austin attorney Harry Whittington, who was discharged from the hospital Friday. "We all assume certain risks in whatever we do ... accidents do and will happen and that's what happened."

He added: "My family and I are deeply sorry for all Vice President Cheney and his family had to deal with this week. ...We hope he will continue to come to Texas and seek the relaxation he deserves."

Would that we were all as forgiving as Mr. Whittington. The media expects the man to join their chorus calling for Cheney's head, and he doesn't oblige. Even though it was he, and not the press, who got the business end of the rifle.

That's loyalty!

I think you are missing the point. Obviously to Whittington, this was much ado about nothing and he was probably saying this as the ultimate screw-you to the media who has been hounding this issue all week. He probably is disgusted with what the media has done to this story (which is a nothing-story BTW) and wanted to say something that would basically show how idiotic the media has been all week over this.

Hell, even CTV had a poll asking whether this confirms a culture of secrecy in the Bush White House! Talk about moronic!

Shot does happen............

Tell the truth I was surprised by Whittingtons comments.

But I do think his goal was to take the wind out of the MSM s overblown sails.
