He has filed charges, and a warrant has been issued for Dick Cheney's arrest!

I swear, I heard it from David "Me!Me!ME!!!" Gregory.

Attorney Whittington is going to tell America that he was shot as the first attempt at tort reform by Dick Cheney.

LOL! You've just given the folks at DU a reason to live today!

I hope he's a feisty old codger, who is ready to take names and kick a$$. If he is, I hope Gregory gets to ask the first question.

How do we KNOW it's really Harry Whittington?

Or that someone won't make him read a statement at knifepoint?

Huh? HUH? WELL?

He is very lucky he was hunting with Dick Cheney and not in a car, plane, boat or skiing with a Kennedy. Or had evidence on the Clintons.

Mr. Whittington is going to just explain to America that he was only shot as the first attempt at tort reform by Dick Cheney.

I saw something like this on another thread, that cracked me up:

Harry Whittington is to announce that VP Cheney shot him due to faulty intelligence provided by the CIA.

I have no idea why, but for some reason I imagine him to be the Zell Miller type and he's going to tell the press/libs they're a bunch of morons.

Paul Begala on CNN announced he wanted Wittington's blood. Maybe Harry is going to give a blood transfusion live on tv today?

Count Begala
02/16 06:32 PM
Count Begala


In a classic case of liberal overreach, Paul Begala took criticism of Dick Cheney to a ghoulish level today, calling on President Bush to encourage the hospitals where Harry Whittington was treated to release his blood alcohol level:

BEGALA: The vice president's performance yesterday leaves a whole lot of questions unanswered. First and most importantly, why was he drinking, how much was he drinking and did that affect his ability — his cognitive ability — while he was hunting?
Answers given by Cheney yesterday:

A. To wash down the barbecue.
B. One beer.
C. No.

Given that Begala somehow seems to have missed these answers, one wonders about his cognitive ability sober.

Then Begala goes from dumb to downright creepy, repeatedly calling for Whittington's blood:

BEGALA: Will the president encourage his friend Harry Whittington and the hospitals in Texas that treated him to release the blood alcohol content of Mr. Whittington? That wouldn't be dispositive as to whether Cheney was drunk, but it would certainly be suggestive. [...]

BLITZER: To be fair, to be fair, the vice president, in the interview yesterday, he said that he had a beer over lunch, which was several hours before the incident, which occurred at 5:30 local time, central time in Texas.

BEGALA: That's what he admits to. What I wanna know is, did Mr. Whittington — who presumably did have a blood test taken when he went to the hospital — did he have an elevated alcohol content? We've been told before there was no alcohol whatsoever.

BLITZER: In the police report that came out today, when they questioned Mr. Whittington at first, when they asked him about alcohol, he said there was no alcohol.

BEGALA: A lot of people say that. I'm interested in the blood alcohol content.
Bloooooooood, Harry. The liberals want your blooooooooood!

I think he is going to come clean and say that he and Cheney were doing shots of 101 Wild Turkey while dragging a cooler full of beer around the ranch.

Don't be surprised if he also mentions that bong hits and strippers were involved.

That's what Chris Matthews is telling me anyways...

That's what I'm praying.

And I'm hoping he won't be as nice as Cheney is!

But can you hear the questions:

"Did Vice President Cheney ask you to make this statement because he's in so much trouble? Do you think he should resign? Why didn't you call the White House Clerks Corps?"
