It's just a silly rumor!

An article by Guest Blogger Donatella Biachi!

Rumors are flying that Dick Cheney's little incident with the shotgun was covered up for hours so the Secret Service could get rid of his gal pal.

Pamela Willeford was appointed by George W. Bush as ambassador to Switzerland and Lichtenstein in 2003 after she and her family gave more than $23,000 to the Bush-Cheney campaign and other Republican candidates just since the 2000 elections.

Willeford was with Cheney when he shot his elderly lawyer in the face and chest, according to the
Austin American-Statesman.

But Sirius radio host
Alex Bennett and the Huffington Post say there’s something going on between Cheney and the woman, and the mysterious coverup was all about hiding the vice president’s mistress.

"The real story is already emerging, if you're willing to do a little digging," blogger
R.J. Eskow wrote Wednesday."

Cheney and Whittington went
hunting with two women (not their wives), there was some drinking, and Whittington wound up shot. Armstrong didn't see the incident but claimed she had, Cheney refused to be questioned by the Sheriff until the next morning, and a born-again evangelical physician has been downplaying Whittington's injuries since they occurred.”

On Wednesday, the following appeared on Wonkette:

Cheney rumor we don’t believe:

The delay in reporing the incident was to cover up Cheney’s affair with
Pamela Willeford.

We thought long and hard about this one, and we just can’t wrap our minds around the idea of any heterosexual woman fucking Dick Cheney. Hence, Lynne.

Today, The Washington Post will be publishing the following article:

Hunting for Camaraderie With Shotguns and Friends
Companions Say Pastime Gives Cheney a Timeout
Peter Baker Washington Post Staff Writer

"Yet several hunting companions say the trips include more political gossiping and storytelling than horse-trading."

"While women sometimes come along, such as Armstrong and Pamela Pitzer Willeford, the U.S. ambassador to Switzerland who was also at the Texas ranch a weekend ago, Lynne Cheney does not seem to be a regular on these trips!"


As I said........ it's all just silly rumors and I don't want to make this a gossip rag; I've known about all of this for a week, but now that the Washington Post has published it's article, the only question I have is "why did it take a full week for a leading newspaper to publish the fact that Pamela Willeford was present at the ranch during the shooting?"

I am having trouble with the visual of Dick naked let alone having sex with someone... anyone! Therefore, maybe I'll not comment on that point.

I do, however, firmly believe that there was more than a "beer at lunch several hours earlier." In fact, would be willing to bet a good time was had by all... until the Vice President of the US of A shot an attorney, that is.

If this is what it takes to get this covered...i.e. the sex angle...then so be it.

Not at all surprising....thanks Don for your intrepid reportage!
