WH "Livid" Over VP Office's Handling Of Shooting

Hell, Cheney started an illegal war for oil and now Bush is getting pissy just because he shot a guy?

I've got news for you-- if this bothers you, wait 'till you take a closer look at hitchhiker disappearances along the Baltimore-Washington Expressway.

Anyway:

According to CBS News, the source said the issue was no longer Cheney's view of press management but rather about Iraq, Hurricane Katrina and a range of other issues that play into the public's view of the administration's arrogance.

CBS News reported that private signals were being sent that the matter has been handled badly and Cheney needs to come out and say something.

And of course Drudge blares that if Whittington should die, there will most likely be a grand jury investigation.

Which isn't exactly news. Many if not most accidental homicides, I should think, get the grand jury treatment.

Still, it's hardly good PR for the VP to be facing a negligent homicide rap.

On Greta Van Sustern... a doctor says that Whittington most likely did not suffer a "heart attack," minor or otherwise, but an atrial fibrilation caused by irritation of the membrane around his heart. It's not a heart attack, not likely to lead to death, just the heart reacting to the pellet which has breached the outer membrane of the heart.
