If I stand real still and don't say anything maybe it will go away...

Sorry folks, I was out of commission with a 24 flu bug yesterday, but I am back and ready to let's get down to business.

This is now day 4 since V.P. Cheney shot one of his hunting partners in the face.

In the past 3 days the administration has gone from, Shooting...What Shooting? to 'Ohh, that Shooting!', to 'We want to move past that shooting and focus on the business of the country' (Why start now? ) and finally to 'We better have Dick say something about this as it looks like we are trying to hide something'.

Really!...what ever gave the White House that idea!?

This accident and the ominous silence that followed has raised the ire of the party faithful to turn on the party and the White House demanding answers as to why this was handled so poorly. Marlin Fitzwater, a former Republican White House spokesman, told Editor & Publisher magazine that Cheney "ignored his responsibility to the American people" and Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) said he referred to Cheney as the "shooter in chief" in a meeting with members of Congress yesterday morning. When you have Fitzwater and Sen. Lott breaking bad on you, well... it's not a good sign.

Cheney is possibly, maybe, potentially going to speak or release a statement on the whole issue today.

Remember I said maybe.....
