I started to write a piece about the Vice President’s hunting accident and the press frenzy that followed it. I had a link to the press conference of February 14, and I focused on several particularly stupid questions that were posed to Scott McClellan. I included a link to a nutcase reporter who managed to figure out a way to work Aaron Burr into his pointless story. Finally, I included a few links to truly disgusting quotes from the Unhinged Left.
Then I decided that the exercise was a waste of time. No matter what I write, or what anyone else writes, those on the Left (and just about all of the MSM) who hate Vice President Cheney will continue to hate him with a seething animus exceeded only by their loathing of President Bush. Nothing will change their minds.
I prefer to think of the incident as a sad case of a man who screwed up and, in the process, caused serious injury to a close friend who understands that his injuries are the result of an accident and who bears no ill will to his friend who caused them.
I think most regular people think of it that way.
