Un Cachito de la vida - A little piece of Cameron's life

Ok. One last slightly political question for now. There's been lots of outrage and hot feelings over the delayed response of Cheney informing the world he accidentally shot a fellow hunter. Here's a related article in the NY Times. Even though it was the other guy's fault, Cheney is now taking responsibility, but still getting hounded. The White House Press Corps, or zoo, whatever you want to call them, are furious over the fact they weren't notified immediately. I say, who cares? Basically, the President found out about an hour after it happened and the next morning, the story was released to the local newpaper, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. This was an unfortunate accident - hardly a matter of national security. Anyway, I just want to say, 'Gimme a break." But maybe I'm alone in my feelings; do any of you care?

I think the zoo is just so full of thier own importance that they were offended when this story wasn't relayed to them earlier. But really, I don't care about the story. It was an accident. Sure it's interesting, but I think that the press/conspiracy theorists are blowing it way out of proportion. I don't think that there was any malice on Cheney's part. Though, I do think that if Cheney were negligent/careless and if the man he shot died, then he should be tried for manslaughter. If he were to resign because of this, then I think it would be major news. Otherwise, it shouldn't be anything more than a side note at the back of the paper.

From The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson:"You can understand why this lawyer fellow let his guard down, because if you're out hunting with a politician, you think, 'If I'm going to get it, it's going to be in the back.'"
