Lawrence O'Donnell on whether Vice President was drunk on Saturday.

Does any one realize that Secret Service agents are law enforcement officers? Would these law enforcement officers (all of them) cover up the fact that Cheney was drunk? What about the 10 other people in the shooting party? What about the people at the ranch? Or the support staff with Cheney? This sounds like a lot of people to make sure that they kept quite? What would happen to the careers of these law enforcement agents if it came out later that they had lied to protect the vice president? Is any of this even remotely serious.

"How do we know there was no alcohol? Cheney refused to talk to local authorities until the next day. No point in giving him a breathalyzer then. Every lawyer I've talked to assumes Cheney was too drunk to talk to the cops after the shooting. The next question for the White House should be, was Cheney drunk? I have never gone hunting with ultra-rich Republicans on a Saturday afternoon, but I have seen them tailgating at Ivy League football games, so it's hard for me to believe that any of their Saturday lunches are alcohol free." . . .
