Talking about the wrong mistake

I have been having mixed feelings about Cheney's hunting accident and the feeding frenzy that followed. Clearly this was a friend of Cheney and Cheney himself was extremely upset about it. End of story as far as I'm concerned. Of all the things we could be saying about Cheney right now, his personal life and shooting incident are the last things we should focus on. How about sticking to the ample material in his public life and his political manuevering?

To me, this rush to ridicule the man based on a personal mistake is just more evidence of the erosion of our political system and the sensationalization of our media coverage. My personal dislike of Cheney aside, I hate to see politics taking this nasty turn. I think we have plenty of ammunition in his public decisions and actions without looking to his private life. If this had been a Democrat, would we really have wanted the other side to jump on this?
