CHENEY'S OTHER WOMAN?
Notoriously secretive Vice President Cheney's bizarre hunting accident has alot of people wondering why 14 hours elapsed before a near-deadly mishap was publicly reported. Some speculators are saying Cheney was hunting more than quail when he shot his pal Harry Whittington on the ranch of a Texas lobbyist on Feb 11 and needed time to cover up an affair with a longtime gal pal. "It's Cheney's Chappaquiddick!" dec;ares an internet blogger. He was with a woman to whom he was not married. Others suspect booze was involved that the 65-year-old veep needed time to sober up or that Cheney had a heart problem that made him collapse and accidently pull the trigger, shooting Whittington, 78.


-snip-

Some bloggers even wildly suggest that Cheney hunting partner, Pamela Pitzer Willeford, the U.S. ambassador to Switzerland, actually fired the errant shot but Cheney took the blame to divert attention away from her. This much IS known-Cheney was in a three person hunting party on the 50,000 acre ranch of lobbyist Katharine Armstrong and at about 5:00pm Whittington was hit in the torso, neck and face by approximately 200 pellets from a 28-gauge shotgun.

"Has anyone asked if it might have been the other hunter who actually shot Harry Whittington?" ponders lawyer and broadcaster Cenk Uygur. "Imagine the kind of attention Willeford would have received if she was the shooter. It's possible the only thing more damaging than the vice president shooting someone might be his mistress shooting someone!"


-snip-

Meanwhile, Cheney's relationship with Willeford- whose physician husband George was at the ranch that weekend but didn't hunt- is longstanding. She collected $23,000 for Bush/Cheney campaign, serves as head of the Texas Higher Education Board and was appointed to the highly sought-after ambassadorship to Switzerland. But even without Willeford, the incident reeks of cover up, say sources. "Someone with a documented history of drinking problems causes a serious accident and then avoids the authorities for a period of time, long enough to get the alcohol out his system, " says broadcaster R.J. Eskow. "It's about power, drinking, irresponsibility, and dishonesty. If there was a romance going on, the issues are the same. Along with the secret mistress and drunken gun play theories, some bloggers believe that Cheney had a heart problem and his implanted defibrillator kicked in, jolting him into shooting his gun.

There's no link, I got this from the Globe paper/tabloid. Take it with a molecule of salt, considering the source BUT these days, the media we considered reliable have been anything but..

1. Wasn't Whittington's wife there too?
So why wasn't Lynne there? Does anybody know what she was up to that weekend?

2. No way would Cheney take the blame
for his girlfriend cause repukes never take blame for anything even what they themselves have done. I think he was drunk and hunting 'tail' and needed time to sober up after shooting his friend.

3. Thanks for posting that.
Someone told us about earlier in the day, but couldn't find a link, and didn't post excerpts. It's kind of interesting.

Thanks.

4. Silly logic. If Willeford had shot Whittington, this would...
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 02:09 AM by Maddy McCall
have been a non-story. Cheney would have been air-lifted out of the ranch, and no one would ever have even known that he had been there.

I have no doubt that he fired the shot.

Thanks, Ecumenist, for typing this for us. It's an interesting read, anyway.
