Good Thing He Keeps those Paramedics Around

In the shooting "accident" this weekend, did anyone else notice that our (vice) President regularly travels with a host of emergency personnel? Following the shooting of his friend, according to vp spokeswoman, Lee Ann McBride....

"Fortunately, the vice president has got a lot of medical people around him and so they were right there and probably more cautious than we would have been," she said. "The vice president has got an ambulance on call, so the ambulance came."

Does anyone else find it troubling that the VP's health is so precarious that he goes hunting with emergency personnel and has an ambulance on call? That seems to me at least as newsworthy as the incident itself.

scrubbing the historical record

"The text and all mention of the quote are now gone from the MSNBC webpage, and a Google News search turns up no other mentions of this quote. This raises some serious questions here. What happened? Where did the quote go? Did the ranch owner really say this?"

"Armstrong also told NBC News that she does not believe alcohol was involved in the accident. She says she believes no one that day was drinking, although she says there may have been beer available during a picnic lunch that preceded the incident. "There may be a beer or two in there," she said"
