Hunter Shot by Cheney Is 'Very Stable'

Am I the only one who thinks that Harry Whittington took one for the team? I've long been convinced that the Bush administration's political strategy is to have so many scandals that the media and the public can't stay focused on any one long enough to do any damage (there's a post here somewhere about it, but I'm too lazy to look it up). So, maybe with the eavesdropping story lasting longer than they had anticipated, Cheney saw an oppurtunity while hunting to shift the focus a little bit, and took it. Any coverage devoted to his hunting prowess is coverage that takes away from people unhappy with the administration.

Ok, so I don't really believe that he shot the guy on purpose (as noted in my last post, I just think he's an idiot), but it is awfully convenient how these idiots always seem to fuck up something new right around the time the last thing they fucked up is really getting noticed.

You know, I'm not usually one for conspiracy theories, but this one is more plausible than most.

I think one thing this administration has done for us it to make any wacky ramblings seem plausible.

This is the Media's fault, they are so gullable and so willing to jump on another meaningless story.
