The Washington press corps is all a twitter that they were left out of the loop on this whole story (first reported to and by a LOCAL newspaper).
It was only a little over a decade ago the press and the politico’s were extolling that private pursuits have nothing to do with ones public life when defending then President Clinton. Where are those attitudes and platitudes now ... while the press is asking if Cheney should step down from the Vice-Presidency, or speculating as Brian Williams did on "Nightly News" - "was he drunk"?
So, who will be donning the orange vest and headgear next, Bill Mahr, David Gregory, Jack Cafferty, Hillary Clinton?
Pray for the health and continued recovery of Mr. Harry Whittington (latest news here - http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060215/ap_on_go_pr_wh/cheney_whittington).
