"I said, 'Mr. Vice President, this is going to be public, and I'm comfortable going to the hometown newspaper,"' she told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "And he said, 'You go ahead and do whatever you are comfortable doing."' McClellan said: "The vice president thought that Mrs. Armstrong should be the first one to go out there and provide that information to the public, which she did. She reached out early Sunday morning to do so."
OK, forget what I posted yesterday. Dick Cheney shot this guy Whittington on purpose. Whittington was wearing a bright orange jacket. He was shot in the face, neck and chest. He was in intensive care. The Secret Service turned the local sheriff's office away when they came to interview Cheney.
There is more to this story and we won't know what it is until Whittington speaks up. He is a mover and a shaker in Texas politics. If he wasn't he wouldn't have been hanging out with the Veep in the first place. He isn't the type to remain silent after getting shot.
We have all experienced panic and done something stupid because of it, but this is just beyond the pale. What idiot told Mrs. Armstrong to call the press? Who decided not to get in front of the story and put a good spin on it? It all points to the shooting being something other than an acccident.
I always knew that Bush and Cheney were criminals, I just didn't think they would start shooting their own kind.
