Harry Whittington's doctors to press: "No comment"

The doctors for Harry Whittington (the lawyer Cheney shot) held a press conference recently and I found these two exchanges between the press and the doctors rather interesting.
One reporter asked whether or not the White House was coordinating the doctors' press conference. The doctor said that that was a good question, then explained that since their physicians were responsible for the initial care then it was only "common courtesy" to keep the White House updated.

[...]

The last question of the press conference was whether or not Whittington's blood alcohol had ever been tested. The response: "No comment."

Beer and women can be bad for your health especially when you throw a shotgun into the mix.
