OK. I have about three zillion things I’m supposed to be doing, and I really wasn’t planning to post anything more about our “shooter” veep. But then, the guy goes public with the story that should have been told over three days ago and, hell, if the American public buys his ‘good ole huntin’ boy’ explanation of Saturday’s events, they deserve to be “peppered” in their collective asses for being so gosh-danged stupid.
Are Greatest Husband and me the ONLY ones who think it’s strange that, in a country where you can’t even get a job mopping floors at KFC without being subjected to drug testing and credit checks, you can accidentally SHOOT someone and not have your blood alcohol level checked by the authorities?!?
But wait. I’m sorry. It’s friggin’ TEXAS. And, it’s our above-the-law cowboy administration, and
Cheney said he agreed that ranch owner Katharine Armstrong should make the story public, because she was an eyewitness, because she grew up on the ranch and because she is “an acknowledged expert in all of this” as a past head of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. He also agreed with her decision to choose the local newspaper as the way to get the news out.
“What do you think now?” he was asked.
“I still do,” Cheney responded. “The accuracy was enormously important. I had no press person with me.”
So, that makes sense because, you know, he was out in the wilderness (private ranch, 50 yards from a friggin’ motorcade) and, well, he may have had an entire medical team with him, but where on earth are you going to find a “press person” when you need one?
Oh man, Scotty my boyfriend, I’m starting to feel sorry for you. How can anyone be so overwhelmed with self-loathing that they would continue to weasel at the feet of bosses like Chump and Krusty. Honey, you need a therapist.
And the 78 year old victim will be hospitalized for at least another WEEK? Holy birdshot. I mean, I’ve had my friggin’ guts and vital organs pulled out, rearranged and reassembled and was discharged from the hospital in four days. What kind of shape is this poor guy really in?
