Man, I hope he doesn't die. The press would have a field day. Even if it wasn't due to the shotgun pellets, it would be a circus.

I work with a lib, and even she admits that the press - especially the narcistic White House press corp gaggle of wackos - have gone off the deep end. She actually said to me yesterday, to paraphrase: "Enough about Cheney... What are we going to do about that guy in Iran?!?! He's nuts!!"

Hmmm, even some on the left are "getting it." :-)

No reasonable person is going to hold this tragic accident against Dick Chaney if Whittington dies. All the usual cockroaches will crawl out of their dank crevices to pounce on Cheney, like the anti-gun lobby, the heartless, gutless liberals and the like. But most Americans will be turned off by their crass, opportunistic scavenging on the bones of Mr. Whittington.

Serious response: I wish him well. An elderly man, a good man by all accounts. CNN says he is having heart problems because of a pellet in his heart.

Not so serious response: If you wanted a conspiracy theory- A Republican loyalist agrees to be shot to give Vice President Cheney an excuse to resign so President Bush/Karl Rove can pick a new VP for a Presidential run.

I hope he doesn't die because it would suck for him.

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.
