Oh, how this story has morphed.

First, Armstrong, et al, swore up and down: no beer.
Then, Cheney admitted he had one at lunch. (I guess, like most alkies, he must have snuck out back to have one so that the others wouldn't see.)

First, Whittington was just bruised.
Then, he had a heart attack.
*
First, Cheney didn't announce it.
Then, he want on Faux to say he had a bad day.
*
First, Whittington is in the hospital.
Then, he's out, and apologizing to Cheney.
*
First, Cheney had swung around and shot without seeing Whittington.
Then, (link here) Whittington "stepped in the way" of Cheney. (more below)

This just gets crazier.  First, an experienced hunter shoots, apparently, a low bird in an area where he doesn't know exactly where everyone is.  Then, it comes out that he shot a guy in a bright orange vest about 90 feet away (although the pellet pattern is not consistent with a .28 ga at 90 feet).  First, he'd had nothing to drink; then he'd had a beer, and now, apparently, a Secret Service (SS) report that says that Cheney and others were drunk.

And NOW!  Whittington, an experienced hunter, steps in front of a hunter that is stalking quail.  Cheney would have obviously had his gun barrel at least close to parallel to the ground - a pretty good sign that he's prepared to shoot.  You don't approach quail with your gun barrel down; that's just stupid.  And an experienced hunter does not walk in front of a raised gun.  Period.

But you can believe that if you want.

Did Alice pass this way?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
