Let the record show that it took the MSM less than a day to float the possibility that Dick Cheney intentionally shot Harry Whittington.
And who better to surmise that the Vice-President might have been trying to bump off his buddy than Ron Reagan, that primetime speaker at the Kerry convention who moonlights as an MSNBC "political analyst"?
Reagan appeared on tonight's Hardball with Chris Matthews, and in decrying the fact that the Secret Service apparently denied local law enforcement immediate access to Cheney, said the following:
"Law enforcement is entitled to investigate this case, to find out what happened, to find out if he had anything against Mr. Whittington, and to find out - again I don't mean to suggest anything - to find out if anyone had been drinking . . ."
Matthews, seemingly shocked but unable to contain a wide smile, broke in:
"You just did [suggest something]. Are you crazy? You just threw that out there. There's no reason to believe this is anything but an accident and you know it."
After suggesting it might have been anything but an accident, Reagan contradicted himself while trying to change the subject:
"I'm not suggesting it wasn't an accident but I'm saying one of the first questions the police would ask anybody is if there had been any drinking going on."
Matthews' other guest, notorious Bush antagonist Patrick Buchanan, was only too happy to pour inflammable liquid on the fire:
"Why didn't Cheney invite the sheriff in so the sheriff could find out what happened?"
So there it is. Approximately 13 hours after the story broke on national news, a paid MSM analyst has suggested that the Vice-President of the United States might have intentionally shot an innocent man.
It's wise not to watch Hardball for mental health reasons. If Rush would stop mentioning it, everyone would forget it's on, and it would go into oblivion.
Every time I look at this odd little "man" Ron Reagan's head, I can't help but think of one of those old wooden clothes pins from the early 50's. And, Ron's head has about as much gray matter as those old clothes pins.
That was the look of constipation.
Maybe they should have brought in the Park Police from Fort Marcy Park.
That head is made of wood.
I don't believe I've ever seen a picture of Ron Reagan before.
He looks as gay as Christmas.
I really believe that what matters here is whether or not RR ever legally adopted him, or if Ronnie Prescott ever changed his name in court. "Deserving" is really irrevalent.
I can't say, but I believe that he is/was a ballerina.
Think it's safe to say this isn't the Clinton admin.. We didn't find the body in a park with the wrong gun nearby, the blood in the wrong place, etc.. etc.. Nor did the body windup in the wreckage of an off course govt. airplane with a bullet wound to the head under similarly suspicious circumstances. Nope. Hunting accident and the Dems want to make the victim into Vince Foster - projection?
He (Ron Reagan) joined the Joffrey Ballet in pursuit of a lifelong dream to become a ballet dancer. In a widely published photograph, Ron is shown after a performance wearing tights and full stage make-up, getting a congratulatory kiss from his mother, as his father, a few feet away, smiles as an observer.
Reagan now lives in Seattle with his wife, Doria, a psychologist (he should see her as a patient!) whom he married in 1980 after much public speculation as to his sexuality. He has worked in recent years as a magazine journalist, and has hosted talk shows on cable TV networks such as the Animal Planet network. Reagan serves on the board of the Creative Coalition, an organization founded in 1989 by a group including Susan Sarandon and Christopher Reeve to politically mobilize entertainers and artists, generally for liberal causes such as First Amendment rights, arts advocacy and public education.
Asked in a June 2004 New York Times interview if he would like to be President of the United States, he responded, "I would be unelectable. I'm an atheist.
Ronette playing investigative journalist again?
Should have stuck with the tutu.
Ron Reagan's anti-conservative bias is so venomous...it's personal. (He wanted more attention from RR and didn't get it.) More shrink visits in order.
Of course he shot Whittington intentionally. He had a lawyer in his sights, had the opportunity, and took it. Who can blame him?
I just woke up from a dream.
Cheney showed up for a press conference today with a quail and a gun.
The sheer silliness of this whole thing is blowing me away (probably a poor choice of words!) I know quite well how to handle a shotgun, how accidents happen, and how terribly excited non-shooting liberals are about this accident. In a "lighter" note (and if there was EVER a 'light in the loafers" it's Ron Reagan...Mr. TuTu himself), THE Ronald Reagan, gentleman, horse lover, and shooter, must be rolling in his grave.
I am adding another FR comment to my BEST OF:
1. Best comment I've read...from another FR thread:
"Miss Kopechne could not be reached for comment"

2. LOL. How bout these lines for Cheney's next press corps dinner speech;
"Ted Kennedy and I are going hunting this weekend. He's driving and I'm riding shotgun."
"I took my wife hunting with me. She was scared out of her wits but decided to stay after Teddy offered to drive her home."

And...lest we forget...John Kerry, #1 hero from Viet Nam, pictured with a dead Canada goose in one hand and his shotgun in the other. Why, oh why, do these violent men have to KILL things? /sarcasm off
Now that is coo-coo silly.
Hunting goof-up by one or both parties? yes. Cheney has a vendetta so shoots somebody? this just doesn't happen with Republicans. Democrats, that's another story.
Socialist nanny-state scum!
Don't believe it. It is a settup and Chris is simply the straight man. It is much like when an attorney says something at a trial that the judge says to strike it from the transcript--but its too late, the jury already heard it.
That sounds more like it. LOL!!
Now you've done it....just unleashed fond memories of me playing that game (and Excitebike and Mike Tyson's Punch-Out) back in my carefree 80s youth.
