sometimes i think that we have our priorities mixed up in this country. take all the hubbub about dick cheney shooting his friend on a hunting trip. now this isn't a great thing to have happened, but surely it was an accident, and we're all glad that no one got killed. yet i've read everywhere that this is a sign of how the bush administration sucks. honestly, this has nothing to do with it. iraq, the economy, and spying on brown people for no reason are why the administration sucks. apparently there was even a little testy exchange in the white house press room about how the white house is trying to cover up something. there's nothing to cover up. dick chaney is old and he shot someone who he really didn't mean to shoot. it's stupid, but again, not the reason why he sucks.
then take oklahoma state men's basketball coach eddie sutton, who recently was in a car accident and cited for a DUI. instead of having a press conference or releasing a statement owning up to what he did, he instead opts to take a leave of absence for the rest of the season, citing "health reasons". people should be grilling eddie sutton and calling for his head, they did the same with bob huggins, but instead, i feel like no one is saying a word. imagine if it was mack brown or pete carrol who had gotten in a drunk driving accident.
strange how scandal works with old white guys isn't it?
