Joke's over

According to CNN, Harry Whittington has suffered a minor heart attack due to a pellet in his chest, is in ICU, and will be for at least 7 days.

Aside from no longer finding it funny - since I'm sure Whittington and his family don't think it's all that damned funny - it appears that we have been lied to (AGAIN) about the gentleman's condition.

A pellet in his chest? I thought he was just "peppered." I thought it just "broke the skin."

30 yards away, my ass.

You know, we are all dupes. Here I spend the last day confronted by what seems like an obvious conflict: on the one hand, reports about how "minor" Whittington's injuries were; and on the other, the fact that he had been listed as "critical" and was in ICU - and I don't even notice such an obvious conflict. Put that together with the fact that we know that Cheney and his cronies are stone liars, and I should have realized that the reports about "minor injuries" were bullshit. In hindsight, it's obvious. Next time, maybe I'll have enough sense to not trust the untrustworthy.

Honest to God, sometimes I think that the enduring legacy of this administration is it's utter lack of trustworthiness. NOTHING out of their mouths is EVER true. I realize politicians don't necessarily have the best reputation anyway but HMOG! If you'll lie about little stuff....
