Drunks and Skunks
Cheney taking responsibility at this point is cheap. He's let it sit out there for several days that Whittington was at fault for not announcing himself when he approached the hunting party from behind. Every Cheney apologist has blamed Whittington. For Dick to come out now and say, "I pulled the trigger" still suggests that he doesn't truly believe that he was at fault, but that he knows thats the "right" thing to do. But like everything else over the last five years, it smacks of the way this administration has "taken responsibility" for all the damage it has done, from the invasion of Iraq, to it's nonresponse to Hurrican Katrina, to leaking classified information and outing a CIA operative. It amounts to: I'll take responsibility, if you insist, but only other people will feel the consequences.
