What keeps McCellan from taking off his shoe and throwing it at these people?! I'd last a nanosecond in that job. They keep badgering him about the EXACT time of everything. They're pissing over a few hours!
I meant for this to go into General/Chat. Please move if inappropriate.
I loved El Rushbo's comment that McCellan should have started the press conference carrying a shot gun....lol....
Cheny need to take Howard Dean Deer hunting, they use slugs for that!!
Oh that would have been perfect! I'd pay to see it.
No way! Howard Dean is the best thing to ever happen to the Republican party!
They keep harping on why it took 22 hours to let the press in on it.
The reporters are histrionic about the incident. Excited screeching, waving hands. The only quiet one in the group so far is Helen Thomas.
I'm afraid she might think she could be shot. ; ).
He should respond by saying, "Even though it took a while to
get all the facts, at least the Vice President did not leave the injured person there to die overnight, like Ted Kennedy did!"
David Gregroy from NBC is a horse's ass
I hate the wh press. And I think McClelland is looking weak.
This is ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE.
I am REALLY speechless at the HYSTERIA in the press corps.
Someone on another thread suggested if McClellan was questioned about the delay in reporting, he should answer with one word: Chapequiddick!
And water is wet.
This was an accident BUT if they want to imply it was done on purpose, they have a right to say that Dick did not do it correctly.
The Clinton thugs were much more efficient as they left no witnesses to their many deaths ruled suicides.
And that's probably because she's sulking, wishing it were Cheney who had been shot, and wishing that it had been fatal.
The WH press are outraged that they were not notified first. McClelland should say that any talking head is as good as another and that the fact the WH press was not first is immaterial and that they should get off their high horse.
Yes, the press sounds like the judge, jury and executioner.
Some bimbo reporterette just asked Scott "Is it appropriate for the Vice President to offer his resignation"??
What it is, seems to be the representatives from the DNC there are trying to find, any sort of nugget in that news media that might suggest a conspiracy.
"Should VP Cheney offer his resignation?" Jeeze..
The press is treating this like it is Watergate.
One insinuated (that guy with the gray hair) that checking the lawyer's medical condition shouldn't take that long and SOMEONE should have been calling AP post haste even before the injured got to the emergency room.
Just another excuse to bash the Bush Administration.
Good Lord, now they are comparing this to Hurricane Katrina!
If they really think he did it on purpose much of Capitol Hill should be nervous.....after all he DID shoot a lawyer!!
OMG...reporter comparing the hunting accident to Chandra Levy. That was an amazing leap.
This is totally out-of-control! I think Scott ought to tell these idiots off!
And they wonder why the HELL the American public hates the news media?
They really are a pack of hysterical hyenas today.
Yes, that crossed my mind. She seems to be ruminating...chewing her cud.
That was stupid. Hunting accidents are not a joke.
And Cheney's office was stupid for sitting on this for so long. It's a very newsworthy story, and it only creates the appearance of wrongoing to take that long to report it.
Ya... I really miss Ari.
I had Fox News on for awhile yesterday. One of their infochicks was interviewing some "expert" about the Cheney accidental shooting and -- I kid you not -- the Fox infochick asked the "expert" to explain what it meant when the quail flushed because she didn't know.
"Under Texas Law, would this be considered a Criminal Offense". What blowhards!!
That is one of the three stupidest things I have ever heard from the press. Bwahahaha!
Mummified remains don't tend to say much.
My theory is that Gregory got the tar beat out of him in high school and now is trying to get back at people by annoying everyone to distraction.
Incredible! Each one is trying to out do the other and they are making fools of themselves. They are like sharks in a feeding frenzy. McClellan may know his stuff, but I wish he would really take charge and do a Rumsfeld or a Bolton or who was that great National Guard General? Put these poeple in their places!
They better be careful about what they ask for. Can you imagine VP Condi Rice?
I heard that one too, and that should have been the last straw for questioning on this topic. UNREAL.
LOL...yeah that would make sense. I just like saying that he's a horse's ass any chance I get. I despise him
One asked earlier "should the vice president should take a hunting course?" Un-friggin-believable!
McCellan should just fess up and admit that Cheney is a member of the Crips; he felt dissed by a blood and since he didn't have his glock, he popped some buck in his face, old school style, BOOOOOOOOY!
I'm sure the other reporters are rolling their eyes like high school kids and sighing and ready to get on with demanding the exact timeline (to the second) of the shooting and reporting of it.
The WH should just admit the truth: VP's hunting buddy was wearing a Hillary Clinton mask.
It means they turn 'red' when someone tells a Dan Quayle joke!
