You Just Can't Make this Stuff Up
I was trying to think of something funny and clever to say about Cheney shooting his hunting buddy, Harry Whittington. But, it seems like the late night guys - Jon Stewart in particular - have beaten the topic to death (or at least pumped it full of lead.) Today Mr. Whittington suffered a heart attack. Will Cheney show any remorse if the guy dies from this? So far the VP’s camp has tried to blame Whittington for getting shot because he didn't "follow proper protocol." Will anyone investigate what really happened? When a regular citizen is involved there is usually an investigation into this sort of thing, even if it appears to be an accident. Chances of a real investigation are pretty slim in this case.
It doesn't take much effort to find fault and poke fun at this administration. The way they operate is like a caricature of itself. Too bad the cynic in me still feels that no matter what these guys do, the Democrats will find a way to blow the mid-term elections and 2008. This is one time when I hope to be wrong.
