White House jokes; victim suffers heart attack

Nice to see the White House finds so much humor in its Veep's shooting prowess while the man who was either shot or peppered with birdshot, depending on your point of view, suffered a mild heart attack this morning caused by birdshot that is lodged in his heart.

I'm not a physician, but it seems to me that birdshot lodged in one's heart isn't exactly the result of a mild peppering with birdshot. While the White House would have us believe that Whittington just took a bit of a pelting from Cheney's 28-gauge shotgun, it appears that there was just a bit more penetration than originally indicated.

Mr. Whittington, the victim, is no longer in the sights of Dick Cheney's weaponry. But it appears that he isn't quite out of the woods just yet.

The more that comes out from this story, the thicker the plot. Personally, I love how the ranch owner tried to cover for the Veep by blaming the victim, only to have every other dude that's ever hunted come back with "the responsibility is on the shooter". Because it is. Cause the shooter is the one with the gun.

Another fine mess the Bush administration's gotten itself into.

You're right. These people are so incompetent, it seems, at just about anything they do. Bush can't stay on his bike. Cheney can't shoot properly. The list goes on and on.

I have heard that Condi is a mean shoe shopper, though. Sadly, that won't do much to solve the world's problems...unless your name is Ferragamo.

28 gauge with skin penetration. Hmmm, I put the drunken shot taken at 5 to 8 yards.

I think "drunken" may be the operative word here. We'll never know for sure unless someone talks, which won't happen. Another one swept under the rug.
