Accidents happen or do they: Ted Kennedy at Chappaquiddick, Bill Clinton falls down at Greg Norman's house, Dick Cheney pops a friend in the face with a bb gun

White House reporters (like David Gregory) are hopping mad that Vice President Cheney shot his friend in a hunting accident. Or are they mad that the Vice President's waited a day before publicizing the news? Or are they mad that a small Corpus Christi newspaper, instead of a major publication, got the scoop?

It's hard to tell what the fuss is all about. The only terrible part of this little saga is that a 78 year old man is in the hospital due to a hunting accident. However, what is mystifying is how the vice president has chosen to stay quiet and has directed his staff to stay quiet on the matter. If the police were properly notified after the incident, there can be little harm done in explaining what happened.

Is the media outraged because an innocent man got hurt or are they blinded by partisan rage and hatred for the vice president?

Media types like David Gregory demand answers but we now know more about quails and coveys than we know what actually happened at Chappaquiddick. And did Bill Clinton really hurt his knee by falling down the stairs at Greg Norman's house in March 1997? I don't know the answer to the following question but how long did it take for the Clinton White House to announce that the president tumbled inside the golfer's home?
