THE HALF-VAST LEFT-WING CONSPIRACY FRENZY MARCHES ON
Normally I'd never read an entire transcript of any show, let alone highly recommend it to others. But the interview which Hugh Hewitt masterfully conducted with Lawrence O'Donnell is worth savoring.
MSNBC pundit and West Wing producer/writer Lawrence O'Donnell and Hugh on whether Vice President was drunk.
HH: Good to have you on. Lawrence O'Donnell, yesterday you posted at the Huffington Post about Dick Cheney, Was Cheney Drunk?
LO: I'll tell you. Let me make it clear to you. The person who suggested this question to me was not a lawyer. The person who suggested this question to me was an alcoholic, okay? That's who suggested the question to me. And then I raised the question with other lawyers, and they said oh, yeah. That's why you avoid the police after an accident. I ask you and your audience, Hugh, please tell me why did Ted Kennedy avoid the police after his accident on Chappaquiddick? Do you think alcohol and inebriation had something to do with it?
LO: I get credit for Was Cheney Drunk. Make sure all your audience knows I'm the guy who asked was Cheney drunk, and I forced Fox News into asking him about what his alcohol consumption was that day.
LO: It is most likely that Ted Kennedy was drunk on Chappaquiddick.
LO: What you don't know, Hugh, is what is the ballistic evidence of this case? And you know why you don't know it? You're never going to know it. Never, because they didn't let the local authorities get involved, and let the local authorities figure out factually what was the distance of that muzzle from that man's body. All they're using is assertions made by people who were on the scene, some of whom were witnesses, some of whom were not witnesses. You know nothing about this, because the Vice President made sure you know nothing.
HH: Have you ever been hunting?
HH: Okay. Have you ever shot a shotgun?
LO: I've never been hunting, I've never been drunk, and I've never had a beer at lunch.
HH: But you've gone to Ivy League football games. Which ones, Lawrence?
LO: Oh, you know, Harvard, Yale, all that stuff.
HH: Are you a Harvard guy?
LO: Yes, I am.
HH: Okay. And so you're basing your suspicion that the Vice President was drunk on Harvard football game tailgating parties?
The Half-vast Left-wing is desperately trying to gin up some sort of conspiracy, and by the looks, they're pretty damned desperate with this one.
8 Dummy up, Scooter: Accident my eye. Or rather, Harry Whittington's eye.
If you believe it was just an accident that Vice President Dick Cheney shot his hunting companion last weekend, you obviously have never seen "The Godfather" movies.
Just as surely as a fish wrapped in a bulletproof vest means "Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes," that shotgun blast to Whittington's face was meant to convey that I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby had better bite his tongue and forget about testifying against Cheney, his former boss, in the Valerie Plame spy case.
Peggy Noonan has written some amazing pieces in the past, but good grief, girl, get a GRIP!
8 Peggy Noonan Discusses Possibility Of Cheney Stepping Down: I'm guessing there's going to be a lot of buzz about today's extremely thought-provoking column from Peggy Noonan. In it, she makes an argument that it may make political sense for the President to replace Dick Cheney (but, as Peggy says, only if Cheney agrees)
Mr. Right has written a clever bit of satire, but I'll bet the Left won't view it as that.
8 Long Feared "Bush Purge" Reportedly Now Underway: All over America, in the dead of night, liberals are disappearing --- kidnapped from their beds by marauding, brown-shirted, goose-stepping Republican goon-squads, who show them no mercy! At least, that is what many have come to believe...
8 Chris at LuckyDawgNews has contributed The Other Cheney Huntin' Accident ;)
8 Café Press has 202 pages of Cheney merchandise.
8 And finally, my condolences to my faithful reader Gayle who, while waiting for NBC's coverage of the Olympics, had to endure Katie Couric discussing VP Cheney. May I suggest a healthy dose of Grey Goose?
