47. Well a great many of us can and do walk and chew gum at the same time
The Cheney deal is an exploration of hypocrisy in this administration. It is also quite funny in a dark sort of way. But I doubt that there are many of us who are solely fixated on just the Cheney shooting. We're also dealing with the Katrina hearings, the Hackett mess, the domestic spying issue, the renewal of the Patriot Act, and much, much more. Yes, there are lots of threads about the Cheney issue(and congratulations, you've added one more), but that is quite normal when such an attention grabing issue comes up. Doesn't mean that we left off focusing on other issues, just means that we added another issue to focus on.

Give it a chance to die down. If Whittington doesn't die, I imagine that by next week, we'll be back to "normal" whatever that is.
