Anniversaries

The WaPo has a long memory and marks that 5 years ago today, Dick Cheney shot his load in the face of Dick Whittington, and Cheney forever earned the Mock, Paper, Scissors nom de guerre of Blam-Blam. Cheney still has not offered an apology to Whittington, who was pretty seriously injured.

Less we all forget the lessons of that day: don’t go hunting drunk, and don’t have a blow-job from your mistress while handling shotguns, even if you are an old, impotent f***er who gets off killing things.

    What Wandering Willa said. But going to the WaPo linky and reading about how badly injured Whittington really was was a bit of an eye opener.

    And of course Cheney still hasn’t apologized to him. Thank you, Dick, for living up to our expectations of your sad-ass little self.

    Guess the Secret Service wouldn’t allow Blam-Blam to shoot pen-raised quail with Chimpy.

    No mention of the Swiss Miss in the article.
    The elusive Swiss Miss.
    Lets look back in time shall we?

    CNN: The vice president, his Secret Service detail and other companions rushed to the wounded man’s aid, Armstrong said.

    USATODAY: She said Whittington went to retrieve a bird he shot. Cheney and the third hunter, whom she would not identify, walked to another spot and discovered a second covey of quail.
    “The vice president didn’t see him,” she said. “The covey flushed and the vice president picked out a bird and was following it and shot. And by god, Harry was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty good.”
    Armstrong said the shotgun pellets broke the skin.

    I also came across these gems:

    kare11.com: It was almost like he was spending time with me in my living room,” said hospital administrator Peter Banko, who visited Whittington.

    And finally from oxfordpress.com:
    A few minutes later, Cheney accidently shot Whittington, an Austin lawyer, according to Pamela Willeford, the U.S. ambassador to Switzerland, who was hunting with the pair on the 50,000 acre Armstrong Ranch in South Texas.

      Yes, Pamela Willeford was the Swiss Miss, and long-rumored paramour of Blam-Blam. Lynne turns a blind eye (wouldn’t you?). I just don’t get what’s in it for Willeford?

    Well, she wasn’t made the U.S. ambassador to Zimbabwe.
    That’s gotta count for something.

    Perhaps Willeford is really into reptiles.
