The Left Blowing Cheney Hunting Accident Out of Proportion

Mark Belling was right this afternoon when he said that the left-wing media was going to desperately hold on to this ‘Dick Cheney/gun incident’ story, or lack thereof, for as long as they possible could. Could they be any more pathetic in their fruitless attempts to discredit the Bush Administration? I’ll make my opinion on this clear – no story exists! Was Cheney acting reckless? Yes, he does admit to that. Should he have been more careful? Yes. There, end of story. But no, the leftist media has to continuously pursue something that isn’t there.

Take Keith Olbermann of MSNBC, for example. He questioned Paul Burka, executive editor of Texas Monthly, whether Cheney should be charged with negligent homicide should the patient’s conditions change. He then inquired whether Cheney was drunk at the time of the accident or not.

Then of course PETA had to throw in their two cents about the incident as well. In a letter to the vice-president, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk wrote that Cheney should learn his lesson and not hunt animals.

So that’s it! The quails set Cheney up! Those little b@stards!

Columnist Barry Sanders is a bit more conspiratorial – actually, more paranoid then anything else. He claims that Cheney was sending a ‘Godfather-like message’ and that the incident was no accident. I think someone needs to put down the gangster movies and come back to reality.
