Baldwin to mother ship. Come in mother ship.
Alec Baldwin wonders on The Huffington Post "Will They Go to Court?" So, I suppose the question is...what kind of civil trial will we see, or not see, between Cheney and Whittington?
Considering that when he left the hospital, Whittington said "We all assume certain risks in whatever we do, whatever activities we pursue. And regardless of how experienced, careful and dedicated we are, accidents do and will happen – and that’s what happened last Friday"Whittington is certainly no stranger to a court room and to civil litigation. Will Cheney pay him off, preemptively? Will they go to court? I would imagine if a guy with a few beers in himIf he was even thinking about a lawsuit, he never would have gone on record saying it was just an accident.and "My family and I are deeply sorry for all that vice president Cheney has had to go through this past week.The Angry Left really went balistic with that statement.We send our love and respect to them as they deal with situations that are much more serious than what we’ve had this week."
- Self-Blaming By the Victim If Cheney shooting victim Harry Whittington thinks he's doing the Veep any favors by apologizing to him and his family for what they "have had to go through this week," then his judgment is as poor as it was when he decided to go out in the woods with Dick Cheney to begin with.
- Robert A. George Whittington sounds like an embarrassed samurai who has suddenly, uh, lost face. Ahem. Next: a reading from the recently-discovered deathbed letter of apology from Alexander Hamilton to Aaron Burr.
- Desert Rat Democrat I'm Sorry You Shot Me, Mr. Cheney
Cheney said he had ONE beer for lunch several hours earlier. And the land owner did not know there was any beer beign served.shoots you in the face on a hunting trip, how could you turn down that opportunity? What would Cheney do about the whole secrecy thing then? I mean, this is the guy that sicced Enron on Gray Davis and the state of California to embarrass Davis,
Baldwin is trying to rewrite history here. Enron did not do what it did because Cheney wanted to embarrass Gray Davis. It did what it did to MAKE MONEY, and the fact that Davis was stupid enough to try to control prices from the consumer side of things, and yet wanted to prevent supply problems, and made longterm contracts at a too high price was not Cheney's fault. It was not even Enron's fault. Davis was an idiot.trigger the recall and then watched Arnold Schwarzenegger become governor of California. (To this day, perhaps, still the low point in American political life.)
Is it a low point because Arnold is a Republican, or is it something else. Reagan was a Republican governor of Califronia.Then Cheney covered it up.
How did Cheney cover it up. Did he do something to keep people from knowing Schwarzenegger is governor of California..
