OK. This one needs explained to me.
Everyone with a modern electronic device capable of receiving news knows that American Vice President Dick Cheney shot his 78 year old hunting buddy in the face. (Well, some of the spray got the old coot in his ticker too, causing a ‘minor’ heart attack. Details, details.) Anyway, Cheney apologised for it all (in that special PR spin way of his), and the buddy, Harry Whittington seemed to be recovering nicely.
Then I read this and realised that even when the VP shoots you, in the Bush Administration, it’s still the victim’s fault for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Yes, Harry made a public apology for all that poor Dick Cheney has gone through since firing that problematic little shot.
What!? The victim, (old guy with buckshot in his face and heart remember), apologised to the shooter! That’s how slick the spin is in the Bush White House.
“My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this past week,” Whittington said. “We send our love and respect to them as they deal with situations that are much more serious than what we had this week. We hope he will continue to come to Texas and seek the relaxation he deserves.”
But then again, why should I even be surprised…
