Hunting Rule # 1 - Avoid Hunting with Stupid People


On Cheney's hunting accident. Michelle Malkin is worried that the enemies of the President will use this to say he's a tired old fart and should retire.

However, as I see it, the only one who should retire - from hunting - is Whittington himself.

"Armstrong said she was watching from a car while Cheney, Whittington and another hunter got out of the vehicle to shoot at a covey of quail.

Whittington shot a bird and went to look for it in the tall grass, while Cheney and the third hunter walked to another spot and discovered a second covey.

Whittington "came up from behind the vice president and the other hunter and didn't signal them or indicate to them or announce himself," Armstrong said.

"The vice president didn't see him," she continued. "The covey flushed and the vice president picked out a bird and was following it and shot. And by god, Harry was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty good."


I'm glad Whittington is alright, but hunting rule number one, and in the future VP Cheney ought to remember - never hunt with a dumbass.

Fact is that Whittington screwed up - i.e.; dumbass. When you are Quail hunting, you ALWAYS announce your location. Always. Else you forget, say hello to a mug full of pelets (or worse).

Nuff said.

PS: Never hunt with this dumbass either.

UPDATE: As expected the MSM and the moonbat left (as if there were any difference) are hollering about the "24-hours" it took to notify them. Hey, it wasn't like he left a staffer drowing upside down in a car, or anything like that!

UPDATE II: Again, the 'moonies' having a little fun. Of course, it's not like killing your Commerce Secretary.

UPDATE III: You know. There is dignity and class and then there is just a brain dead ass. For this dumb assed press release James and Sarah Brady show they are the latter.

Absolutely crass.

UPDATE IV: Josh Marshall. Looking for the conspiracy. "That said, one point that comes through really clearly from everyone is that when you're hunting and you hit a person -- that's your fault. Period. End of story. Outside of extreme cases of negligence or self-destructive behavior on the part of the victim, it's not his fault. You're responsible, as the shooter, for knowing no person is in your line of fire before you pull the trigger. So this stuff about Whittington being at fault for the accident just doesn't wash for any of the hunters we've heard from."

Well, Josh, your "hunters" (if Kos Kids they really hunt) are idiots as well. From someone who has hunted for more than thirty years, it's each individual's responsibility to let each other know where they are - especially when flushing a covey.

I know, I'm wasting my time.......because confusing facts for liberals is..."par for the course".

UPDATE V: Screw Podhoretz - there is nothing for Cheney to "apologize" for. To whom? The MSM? The "People"? Talk about "Shell Shocked". Sheesh. I've cancelled my subscription.

UPDATE VI: Now Byron York is wetting his pants over this. My wife just cancelled her subscription. In fact, I'm calling for a Boycott of NRO.

UPDATE VII: Finally sanity - thanks to Junk Yard Blog. Musing Minds with a round up of dumb press syndrome.

UPDATE VIII: Per Junk Yark Blog, John Poderetz IS the NEW Andrew Sullivan.

"JPOD, whom I generally think highly of, morphs into Andrew Sullivan: Check out his latest couple of posts. He quotes letters that agree with him, while summarizing those that don’t—giving him control over what they say. And he won’t stoop to link outside the Corner to anyone who disagrees with him even if they make a godo point, and is completely incurious as to why so many have responded to his first post the way they have. Maybe because they’re right and he’s wrong? Never occurs to him.

Those are vintage Andrew Sullivan tactics. So congrats to JPod, who has managed to turn a small wrong opinion (we all get things wrong once in a while, and liberals are wrong 24/7) into a very big credibility problem for himself."


I agree. Here is some more MSM sobbing. I wonder if the MSM would have the same "concern" if it were the Vice President that had got peppered? Somehow I doubt it. Just a hunch.

Hmmmm, ....Maybe Froomkin would like volunteer as a "embedded" reporter the next time the VP goes hunting.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
