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.

I'm just spitballing here. Taking an extreme view. Cheney shoots Whittington. Has heart attack. 78 year olds are going to have difficulty with any physical affliction. Consider that he dies. Cheney will be prosecuted for Involuntary Manslaughter, hunting without a valid license. If charges are not brought, the media will raise hell like we have never seen. This is what the left wants to have happen.

Mr. Whittington needs to be transferred by lifeflight to Texas Heart Institute and have the folks who write the books on this kind of injury take care of him. If a 78 year old man becomes fragile because of hypostatic pneumonia, sepsis, increasing his myocardial infarction, or deep veinous thrombosis or any of a lot of potential complications, he need to have the talent where he is located. Better to transfer now while he is in the best shape, than let him deteriorate, and then transfer him in extremis.

They never get breaking news right.

Ever since Hurricane Katrina, their dignity tank is dangerously low, and their credibility is nil.

Juliet is trash. There is neverending sexual innuendo between her and the co-host. It's too risque for daytime TV.

A lot of the talk is about what Juliet was doing over the weekend with her boyfriend. WHO THE HECK CARES?

Slut.

I just called her office and spoke with her assistant and told her that she needed to tell Dr. London that people are onto her .. that's she's not a cardiologist, though she called Fox News to comment on a cardiac matter,and that people now know she's an anti-Bush Democrat. Got that all in before the clunk .. I obviously dialed *67 first.

I don't know about Texas, but in my state of PA. it is very rare for someone to be prosecuted over a hunting accident.

Unless of course there is evidence that it was not an accident.

"If he dies, Cheney will resign."

I'm glad somebody else said it. A lot of people here apparently think Cheney is indestructable. The only good thing about this tragedy is that Bush wasn't there.

In Texas people are prosecuted often for involuntary manslaughter for automobile accidents. THIS WAS AN ACCIDENT. But the media will hound Cheney relentlessly as well as the county and state prosecutors. Perhaps a lawyer on this thread might weigh in on this possibility.

I think you are jumping the "gun" a bit. Except for Dr. London, all reports are that the man is just fine.

However, that said, I always thought that Cheney would resign by 2007 due to health reasons. That way President Bush gets to put a person in place for the 2008 nomination.

Putting him in ICU could have been precautionary, due to his age, the possibility of infection, and also to keep busybodies away. If he's in ICU, only family members are allowed in. It may be that ICU was requested so that the press wouldn't have access to the area or the people who work there. There could be a number of reasons.

I am not sure VP Cheney wants to stay in office until January 2009 anyways. Why would he want to put up with this crap to begin with anyways?

If Whittington does die, Cheney will feel like crap without having the media around beating him up for 3 years. Wouldn't hold it against him if he did retire.

Agree, and I certainly hope not. IMO his resignation would be mistaken by the dims for an admission that this was something more than an accident.

Sigh. Guess my gender is clear, but I don't even think she's attractive. My hubby likes the reporterettes with an "exotic" look. Like Kiran Chetry. I think he mentioned Patti Ann Brown. Doesn't like blondes. I just don't get the dumb airhead thing. I find it a turnoff, but then I think above the waist.

Nah, it's OK if McClellen knew yesterday. (Note I said if.)

Would have been inappropriate for him to release further medical info. Breach of confidentiality. Besides, the doctors may have been doing further testing at that point and the heart attack thing was simply suspected and not confirmed.

Yeah, what's up with this Dr. London? I was channel surfing just after the story broke, and I heard this woman with lots of feedback coming through her phone hollering about how part of Mr. Whittington's heart has died, and how his condition is critical and she made it sound as if he's barely clinging to life. Martha MacCallum basically let her rant on. They had Dr. London on twice, and made her sound like she was initmately knowlegable of the situation.
