Los Angeles Times: Hunter Suffers Setback as Criticism of Cheney Grows

The Washington Post: Cheney’s Response A Concern In GOP

The New York Times: Handling of Mishap Creates Strain in the White House

The Boston Globe: Hunter shot by Cheney has a heart attack

The Globe’s story is particularly breathless, saying the “sudden turn” in Harry Whittington’s condition left the White House “stunned” and his “prognosis difficult.”

Washington Post columnist David Ignatius opines that “arrogance of power is on display with the Bush administration,” and astonishingly compares the Veep’s hunting accident to Chappaquiddick and Watergate:

Nobody died at Armstrong Ranch, but this incident reminds me a bit of Sen. Edward Kennedy’s delay in informing Massachusetts authorities about his role in the fatal automobile accident at Chappaquiddick in 1969. That story, and dozens of others about the Kennedy family, illustrates how wealthy, powerful people can behave as if they are above the law. For my generation, the fall of Richard Nixon is the ultimate allegory about how power can corrupt and destroy. It begins not with venality but with a sense of God-given mission.

The MSM is unhinged, a victim of its Bush hatred, which includes of course hatred of Cheney. The idea that failure to tell the White House press corps of a hunting accident for 14 hours is in anyway similar to leaving a woman to die in a submerged car while fleeing the scene or the cover-up of Watergate is just nuts.
And the American people know it.
