For those of you who can never have too much of the Cheney shooting (can you believe this just happened a week ago? It feels like this happened last year, there has been so much BS printed and said about this little event already), here is one last post-mortem on this now dead story:
Mary Matalin, Vice President Dick Cheney’s longtime troubleshooter, was sleeping in last Sunday when the phone jangled her awake at 8 a.m. She groggily picked it up to hear, ‘The vice president shot somebody, and he’s O.K.’ ”
“And I said,” Ms. Matalin recounted, ” ‘Can I get a cup of coffee?’ ”
In the time it took her to make a pot, more calls had come in from the Armstrong Ranch in Texas, all with conflicting information about the condition of Harry A. Whittington, the 78-year-old lawyer injured by Mr. Cheney in a hunting accident. “I heard everything from ‘it’s a surface wound’ to ‘he still can see,’ ” Ms. Matalin said in a telephone interview on Friday.
Onward to the next ‘scandal.’
