It's Time to Move On

This from AP:

SARITA, Texas (AP) - The sheriff's department closed its investigation Thursday into Dick Cheney's accidental shooting of a hunting partner and said no charges will be filed.

The Kenedy County Sheriff's Department issued a report that largely supports the vice president's account of the weekend accident that wounded 78-year-old lawyer Harry Whittington.

Whittington, interviewed in the hospital, assured investigators no one was drinking when the accident occurred and everyone was wearing bright orange safety gear, according to the report.

Sheriff's dispatcher Diana Mata, speaking for the department, said the case is closed and no charges will be filed. She said Sheriff Ramon Salinas would have no comment on the report.

Since Mr. Whittington seems to be determined to continue living and the Sheriff's Office has all but confirmed that the accidental shooting was just that: An accidental shooting, I think the mainstream media can end their death watch and criminal conspiracy posturing while they still have an opportunity to avoid further embarassment. They probably won't, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway.
