The Cheney shooting -- a few loose ends

I hope you're all having a nice weekend.

For your reading pleasure, here's more on The Shooting:

The Carpetbagger Report: "This is a controversy that's wrapping up with plenty of question marks." Indeed.

MoxieGrrrl: "He goes to a lobbyist's ranch, shoots a man accidentally, and is not placed under the same investigative scrutiny as average Joes. Law enforcement did not meet with Cheney directly until the next morning. Seems to me that if there was nothing to hide, the authorities should have been contacted immediately and given the full cooperation of everyone involved the second Whittington was hurt."

Booman Tribune: "Hey, I know this'll probably go nowhere fast. But, as we've discussed here this last week, it's part of the pattern. Most egegriously, a lack of responsibility. Then there's the carelessness, the lack of consideration or even consciousness of other human beings' lives, the self-serving lies and cover-ups, and the callousness."

Firedoglake has a lot on Cheney (and Libby), too.

And here's a photo from The All Spin Zone:

This is what you look like when the Vice President of the United States shoots you in the face and chest during a canned quail hunt in Texas.

(Now take a moment to ponder the meaning(lessness) of existence...)

Pleasant thoughts, my friends. It's an unpleasant world. Go watch the Olympics -- or do whatever you need to do to convince yourself that all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds.

  • How do you look when you ride across a bridge with Ted Kennedy???

  • A low blow, but perhaps fair. I'm hardly one to let Ted Kennedy off the hook for what he did. But Kennedy's behavious does not let Cheney off the hook either.

  • I was afraid that the Cheney incident was going to send Democrats off on a gun control tangent that could alienate swing voters in the upcoming election. The matter seems to be dying down now that Cheney has spoken about it. The Cheney and Kennedy situations were similar - both were accidents and handled poorly.
