Vice President Cheney Shoots Attorney... Punchlines Left to You

I wouldn't even bring this up except for a question actually asked by a reporter to White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan.

One reporter actually asks (and we're not making this one up), "Would this be much more serious if the man had died?"

For the record, Mr. McClellan replied, "Of course it would." We hope the 78-year-old Mr. Whittington recovers promptly after his heart attack yesterday. As for the Beltway press corps, it has once again earned the esteem in which it is held by the American public.
Ah, the intellectual acumen of our nations reporters is staggering.
