National Review Online has a suggestion for the Vice President.
Cheney himself should make a public appearance on the matter, and the sooner the better. He should get himself with a respected national anchor — perhaps Brit Hume of Fox News — as soon as this evening to express his regret and explain in his own words what happened. He should stop relying on press aides who were not present at the accident to tell his side of the story. Not talking only feeds speculation, and aids the cause of those who want to lampoon and smear him. Let’s hear from the vice president.
I agree, only because it appears that with each passing moment, the MSM and the lefties add another hour to the delay of the initial report (first it was 12 hours, then 14 and now suddenly it’s 24 hours), they hypothesize, they dream up conspiracy theories, and they propagate unnecessary speculation.
It’s time to end this, and the Veep is the only one who can.
MORE: This is exactly the kind of crap I’m talking about.
STILL MORE: And here’s another example.
STILL STILL MORE: Cheney must read NRO. He’s scheduled to talk with Brit Hume today.
