Whittington Back in ICU (FNC Reporting Minor Heart Attack)
WJIM-AM | February 14, 2006 | be-baw

Posted on 02/14/2006 10:09:50 AM PST by be-baw

I just heard from a local radio reporter (during Rush newsbreak at approximately 1:00 p.m) that Whittington "may have taken a turn for the worse," and was put back into intensive care.

Right, usually the greatest danger of longterm Afib is a stroke.

Listening to Rush. They just interrupted with "Breaking News" about this. Furious! I just called WBAP to complain.

Brit was clearly NOT happy with the hysteria displayed..

Now this doc on FOX is ramping up the hype...

REQUEST: For those who believe- please take a minute to pray for this man, VP Cheney and their families...

I'm sick about all this, knowing how Cheney must feel. Yesterday I said he'd never forgive himself.

A guard at the door is not a bad idea. Who knows what lengths Cheney's enemies would go to, to see Whittington die from this accident?

Yes.

They'll treat it. It's not a big deal.

"When are we going to hear from PETA?"

Very Soon, I am sure. Did you see the quail flopping on the ground (in the CNN report)? Just a matter of time now before we hear about it. They won't show any concern for Whittington, just the quail.

It'll make a great PETA, HSUS fundraiser

My husband got up and walked out of the room!
He said this doc is an idiot.

He barely agreed to give me his opinion --- and he only translated to me what we were all hearing from the broadcast and presser.

That woman doc is way out of line.

To be put in ICU in the first place indicates that the wounds were somewhat more serious than being peppered.

 Not necessarily - as someone who has been in small, rural hospitals - the hospital floor is often something akin to the level of care of a nursing home or rehab facility while the “ICU”, has a level of care roughly equivalent to a modern, up-to-date hospital floor.

 Put another way, the only way to get any sort of real care is to be in the “ICU”. Not to mention if you put someone in ICU you have more control of visitors which could be a key consideration in this case.

I thought this guy was supposedly shot at 30 yards with #9 shot? Something does not add up here.

The doctor tried to explain this, though I don't think the press actually listened. He is rather heavyset and said it would be less likely in his case that such penetration would have occurred (more flesh to go through), but he basically said that Whittington is bony chested making such a penetration much more likely.

What really frosts me is the press has no regard for Whittington's family or for how a sitting VP must be beating himself up 24/7 since Saturday afternoon.

Like the reporters have never made a mistake, for crying out loud. It's something the VP will never get over.

It's probably a good thing that I don't have a gun right now.

That makes two of us. I'm listening to one of the empty heads on FNC and I just have to resign myself to the fact that I am going to hear all sorts of hysterical and inaccurate reporting on this for days.
