Cheney Shoots Fellow Hunter

Hey, Get away from my game or I'll....


A couple of things I gleaned from the White House Press Briefing on Cheney's hunting escapades.
MR. McCLELLAN: Go ahead, Connie.

Q Is it proper for the Vice President to offer his resignation or has he offered his resignation --

MR. McCLELLAN: That's an absurd question. Go ahead, Ken.
Connie needs a lesson in common sense, but she's a slow learner.
Q Scott, would this be much more serious if the man had died? Would that change the --

MR. McCLELLAN: Of course it would, Connie. It would have been terrible. Personally, I don't know him very well, but I know Mr. Whittington and I have great respect for him from knowing who he is and what he's done. And it would be horrible news.
"would this be much more serious if the man had died?" Duh. This will have to be entered in the White House Pressing Question of the Year contest.

Scott McClellan should have answered, "Well, actually no, Connie. You see if Mr. Whittington had actually died, Mr. Cheney and the others could have continued to hunt the rest of the day and picked his body up later instead of rushing Mr. Whittington to the hospital. It's not often that Mr. Cheney has time to enjoy a good day of quail hunting and this incident ruined this opportunity."

I wonder what news organization Connie represents, maybe a children's magazine or such.

A sad but comical story. The press, overall, obsessed over why it took so long for everybody to be notified, the timeline, etc. Not to worry, Leno and Letterman have plenty of time to work it into their routines.
