Vice President Dick Cheney is finally breaking his silence about his hunting accident. He is appearing on Fox News Channel — of course — at 5 tonight. As this Washington Post article notes, the White House has not been happy with how the vice president’s office has handled the accident, and has been pushing for Cheney to make a public statement.
Meanwhile, the jokes keep coming — though the report Tuesday about Harry Whittington’s heart attack slowed them some. Here is a roundup:
From David Letterman: "We can’t get bin Laden, but we nailed a 78-year-old attorney."
From Leno: "That’s the big story over the weekend. … Dick Cheney accidentally shot a fellow hunter, a 78-year-old lawyer. In fact, when people found out he shot a lawyer, his popularity is now at 92 percent."
And those in politics were busy making jokes, too. Here’s a couple from a Washington Post roundup:
"Bush-Quail ’06," cracked Democratic strategist Jenny Backus.
"The CIA assured Cheney that Harry Whittington was actually a pheasant," added Democratic speechwriter Jeff Nussbaum.
