For Lack Of A New "Anti-Bush/Cheney" Meme

It's been over a week. The case is closed. Harry Whittington has recovered. The country has moved on.

But the Left side of the blogosphere is still beating the dead horse. It shouldn't be all that surprising. Until something else comes along, the moonbats will continue to spin their Oliver Stone-esque conspiracy theories about Dick Cheney.

Mark at Decision '08 takes a sniff at this sad phenomenon and finds "The Smell Of Desperation".

As a Republican partisan, however, IÂ’m more than happy to let the opposition fritter away their little remaining credibility over a story that is (literally, in this case) yesterdayÂ’s newsÂ…itÂ’s the Democratic Party that needs to go hunting - for a message, if they care at all about about winning electionsÂ…
I second that one.

As for the Old Media, Drudge is reporting that Time and Newsweek are actually planning cover stories on this dead horse for this week's issues. Matt gets a good dig at the weekly news rags mags:

NEWSWEEK editor Mark Whitaker defends his decision to push for another week of Cheney-Shooting coverage: "The reason we ultimately decided to stick with a cover is not because of the hunting incident itself-although we did turn up some new details that you might not have read elsewhere-but because of what it says about the mysterious world of the most powerful vice president of recent times."

...Or what it says about the timing and state of print publications in the Click Age of news cycles.

2 Hmm. Somehow I don't recall the part about Dick Cheney leaving Whittington lying in the open field to die and then spending the next twenty-four hours trying to come up with an alibi as to how he was never at the Armstrong property in the first place. You moonbats just keep barking about it, it only helps us "repugs".
