Is There Anything These Guys Can Handle Right?

Even something as innocent as a hunting accident involving the Vice President apparently requires White House mismanagement - in this case not disclosing the news at all and instead having the owner of the property where the incident occurred report it to the media. The property owner, Katharine Armstrong, who was in the hunting party, made a point of pinning the blame on the 78-year-old victim for failing to announce himself. But hunting experts have questioned this:
"Be absolutely sure you have identified your target beyond any doubt," the NRA says in the gun-safety rules on its Web site. "Equally important, be aware of the area beyond your target. This means observing your prospective area of fire before you shoot. Never fire in a direction in which there are people or any other potential for mishap. Think first. Shoot second."
This should have been no story at all, but Bush's White House can't seem to relax about anything. What are they afraid of that they felt they needed to control this story so? Might it cast doubt on the VP's mental stability? On his hunting prowess? Perhaps people might think that if Cheney made a mistake while hunting, well then maybe the whole Iraq war was a mistake, too! I still think they did it right in Afghanistan - but beyond that is there anything this administration has handled well?

Since your original post Ziel, the victim has had a heart attack and supposedly there is a pellet lodged in his heart.

God forbid, but if he were to die, could Cheney be brought up on criminal charges?

Thoughts from a desperate liberal.

Hey Jimbo, Cheney has already cleared himself. Maybe they can charge the victim for not announcing himself. I wonder if the VP told him to F off before he blasted him.
