No, I'm not fucking joking.
'"My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice-President Cheney and his family have had to go through this past week," Whittington told reporters outside Christus Spohn Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas. "We send our love and respect to them as they deal with situations that are much more serious than what we have had this week.'
That is just...well...I...fnu...glph. I shouldn't be surprised at anything anymore, and in the greater scheme of things...and yet, and yet. Apologizing to the guy who shot you in the face and triggered your heart attack is just such a fucking on-the-nail symbol of everything that's wrong with this administration and what it represents that now I am fully expecting them all to come equipped with their own personal theme music and a thunderclap and lightning bolt after every public statement. This is just not even happening. This is some fucked up screenwriter's nightmare we're all stuck in. Someone who apparently thought that the problem with "Revenge of the Sith" was that it was just too fucking subtle. Someone who watched a Monty Python episode and concluded that it was a documentary. YO, ASSHAT, TIME TO WAKE UP AND GET US SOME FUCKING REWRITE.
