Why Vice President Cheney Won't Speak...

Senior White House officials (i.e. Karl Rove) want Vice President Cheney to explain to the American public what happened, especially after a 78-year old lawyer he shot went into cardiac arrest.

I mean, we're not talking about a secret energy meeting no one cares about, although they should since national energy policy and planning for Iraqi War likely took place right in the White House during the cozy early winter days of the Bush administration. We're talking about the vice president of the United States shooting a man, for crying out loud!

The Washington Post reports:

Some current and former White House officials said Cheney's refusal to address the issue or accept any blame has the potential to become a political problem for Bush because it reinforces the image of a secretive and above-the-law White House. Top White House aides are pressuring Cheney to discuss the incident as early as today, according to people familiar with the matter.
Speak up, Mr. Vice President, your silence is deafening.

But what if Cheney is afraid poor old Harry won't make it; and people at the ranch then get the notion to start blabbing and in talking to this media guy and that one, the story changes; and in changing, facts start to directly contradict the concocted b/s the VP told the nation?

Ay, Dios Mio! You do recall Clinton's oft-heard affirmation, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky," right...? Well, think of the children, or at least the offsprings of corporate moguls at the trough. Who will provide for their multimillion tax breaks if something should happen to Darth-Cheney?

Here's what I think happened. Some folks at the ranch were drinking; maybe the vice president was one of them -- maybe not. In any event, the folks at the ranch didn't want any cops snooping around and seeing all those empty beer cans and wine bottles. They panicked, what to do? Oh, what to do?

And so like every blunder by this administration, the White House did what they have perfected into an art form: Nothing.

This may be just a tiny cover-up, but there's way too many folks who know too much; and they're civilians, which means Cheney has to depend on their kindness to keep their fat trap shut.

If anything happens to that poor millionaire, Cheney is in very big trouble.
