OK, As I understand it the whole problem with the accident is that Cheney waited 18 hours to report the accident, right?
Well let us just imagine that Cheney had held a press conference that same day on the hospital lawn immediately after Mr. Whittington had been admitted. The story we would all be hearing about now is:
"How come it always has to be about Cheney? His friend is lying there hurt in hospital and he's holding a press conference. How arrogant. "
"They just released the story now to try and suck up all the news space and distract from the Katrina hearings and Iran starting to enrich uranium."
