Wolf Blitzer Is Unhappy...

Billmon at the Whiskey Bar watches Wolf Blitzer. Wolf Blitzer is upset because Lynne Cheney called him a traitor:

Whiskey Bar: Crying Uncle: BLITZER: I have been covering the Cheneys for many years, including on a day-to-day basis when he was the defense secretary during the first Gulf War and I was CNN's Pentagon correspondent.... I was surprised when she came out swinging on Friday, surprised... at her sniping at my patriotism. [CNN Late Edition: October 29, 2006]

Why was Blitzer surprised? Did he really think that carrying the Cheneys' water for two decades means that the Cheneys owe him something?
