But why borrow sorrow? It's your perrogative to speculate to your hearts content, but I simply find it to be unproductive (especially given the positive medical reports as we know them so far) and a waste of time and energy.

Returning the due respect, I also find it to be a distraction to the thread. But we've been battling trolls all over these threads today and I suppose I'm just becoming weary of it.

I am NOT alleging you are a troll, btw. :^)

Since you're getting into cultural insults, "Deliver,"
it would be awfully tempting to stereotype you as a dumb redneck who isn't capable of reading a long sentence and understanding it.

But I won't do that. I'll just assure you that while I do eat lots of salad, it is not a matter of being opposed to meat on cultural or ethical grounds. It's because I am at high risk for cardiovascular disease. Also, it makes me feel healthier than my old, red-state diet did.

Other than that and a couple of other things, I'm basically a Middle American, more comfortable with most FReepers than with most "blue" Rats.

There are many, many people like me in California. Your hatred of California reminds me of the anti-Americanism abroad. While there is some basis for it, it is still basically irrational, and the haters should look in the mirror and ask themselves what it's really about.

Hate people for how they behave, not for where they live.

It the usual suck up to the Media Establishment of the Republican Pundits on Knee Pads Caucus. It pure and utter nonsense. Like any of several hundred stories since 2000, THIS matters to the JUNK Journalists and NO ONE else.

Hey Dinosaur Media, WE, the American Voters, understand that accidents happen. They happen to us all the time and NONE of your butt clowns in the Failed Media even notice. This hissy fit is making the Junk Journalists look stupid. It hurts the VP and the GOP NOT at all!

Right now the American people probably do understand the accident and it probably isn't hurting Cheney. But that's right now. Things can morph, however unreasonably. Again, my concern is based on the possibility of the medical situation going completely sour. We must hope and pray that it doesn't.

There are no reasonable alternatives in the modern world, I grant you. But if it were me I'd be unreasonable and check out of the hospital, fibrillations notwithstanding. Almost everybody in my family has either died or had a close brush with death because of a hospital stay---something that would not have happened but for the hospital. So I'm sort of biased. :)

Hello,

I posted yesterday afternoon that the Dims and the press would overdo this and that it would backfire on them. In the Midwest, which is considered the "battle ground" for 2008, this is going to go over like a fart in church. As despicable as it is, they are doing the nation a favor, once again showing their true hateful colors.

Glad to be here, MOgirl

Hello,

Well, of course the nasty little media-bots are praying that this turns into a crime so that they can destroy the "shooter" (isn't that special?). But other than moonbats, who is going to fall for this? Seriously, they are again proving that they are hate-filled, simpleminded, pathetic windbags.

Your bullet points, which you probably wish were real bullets but aren't, are distinctly unimpressive in this context.

None of them alter the fact that Kerry nearly defeated Bush, I think because of the MSM. While some of the points do indeed reflect well on the Republican effort, they merely help to explain why Bush managed to eke out a victory. They do not change the fact that he almost didn't -- in other words, that the election was uncomfortably close, especially for an incumbent with a decent economy and an unattractive, very liberal opponent.

"Ohio,"

No, I'm not "misinformed." You are dangerously complacent.

Bush's numbers could be much worse, and have been slightly worse. But all things considered, they would be much higher if not for the hostile Rat MSM. And, no, mid-40s isn't particularly good.

I just visited World Net Daily. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/
They have an interview with Kathryn Garcia the Corpus Christi
Gazette reporter who received the call about the accident.

1. She got the call 11am Sunday morning
2. She called WH to verify the story, which they did, which proves Cheney DID notify Bush
3. She regrets saying this kind of accident happens frequently. (Why?)

Thanks to howlin for this timeline:

Here is the timeline:

5:50 p.m. CST - shooting

6:30 p.m. CST - Cheney's ambulance removes Whittington from the field.

***Note it is at least a 20 minute ride back to the main ranch -- only then do they get on the way to the local hospital.

Whittington taken to local hospital, examined, treated.

Whittington helicoptered to Corpus Christi Hospital.

***Secret Service had notified the local police within an hour of the accident.

7:30 p.m. CST -- White House notified and Andy Card calls Bush.

8:00 p.m. CST or there about -- Rove calls Bush to tell him Cheney is involved.

***Cheney goes to the hospital with Whittington.

Sunday morning, 8:00 a.m. CST -- Cheney meets with sheriff.

8:00 a.m. -- Armstrong begins trying to contact Reporter Powell, finally gives up and gives the story to reporter at 11:00 a.m. CST

Paper immediately puts the story up because Garcia (reporter) says that they called the White House to confirm before they put the story up.

She was patched through to Cheney's spokesperson McBride.

She said that as soon as they put the story on their web site they began receiving calls from all over the country -- so why did it take the MSM until 3 EST to get the story?

Au contraire Mora.

Here comes "the panel" to defend the WH press corps.

Brit says if his email is any indication, the public is incensed more at the press corps.

And, Brit adds, today he got a little more.

Mora is hoping that much of the public does not watch the WH press briefings. Stupid Mora doesn't understand talk radio. It's repeated, and repeated and repeated, in national and also local talk radio.

I find the juxtaposition of those two statements fascinating. The use of "haters" as a noun is so incredibly DUmmie in orientation...are you a DUmmie sleeper, by chance?

Yes, that's part of the reason I asked the question. If the MSM couldn't get Cheney on the shooting accident they would go after him for damaging the environmental wildlife.( a degree of sarcasm)

The case revolves around the study that lead is eaten by foraging wildlife and blah blah blah.

I saw an interview with Brit on Washington Journal a few years ago. They profiled some of the well-known faces of FOX News. (CSPAN shares the same building as FNC's DC bureau). Brit was asked about his work at ABC, and he said he hasn't looked back on it since joining up with FOX.
