"Go fuck yourself": Dick Cheney

Kevin Drum points to a funny story concerning Dick Cheney.

According to congressional aides, [Sen. Patrick] Leahy said hello to Cheney following the taking of the Senate group photo on the floor of the chamber.

Cheney, who is president of the Senate, then ripped into Leahy for the Democratic senator’s criticism this week of alleged war profiteering in Iraq by Halliburton, the oil services company that Cheney once ran.

….During their exchange, Leahy noted that Republicans had accused Democrats of being anti-Catholic because they are opposed to some of President Bush’s anti-abortion judges, the aides said.

That’s when Cheney unloaded with the “F-bomb,” aides said.

Poor old Cheney, he must be worried about something or other.

  1. Dick Cheney…thought he had been assassinated since the release of “Without Me” lol

    The story was funny…

  2. Thought Pandagon [http://www.pandagon.net/mtarchives/002665.html] had a funny take on this. Perhaps A Cheney could become the new euphemism for telling someone to fuck off.

    Yeah, I was walkin’ down the street and this guy did a Cheney at me, just outta nowhere.

  3. The guy is obviously overworked trying to fight both the Iraq war and the decency war at the same time. However, in both cases(copulating with oneself and fighting a war on foreign soil) you should have an exit strategy before you start

  7. After continual character assasination by a bunch of dumbasses who didn’t have the integrity to argue with my policies, I suspect I’d tell someone to get fucked, too. I think the comment, while justified, points to a greater problem in that Leahy’s behavior and Cheney’s response point to the simple fact that politics has become hostile and mean-spirited. It is not about policy issues any longer. It is about clobbering your opponent to the point that you can’t have a decent conversation with him after the debate. I support the GOP in most cases, but I must admit, that this problem really does run both ways.

  8. SCANDALS! SCANDALS! SCANDALS!

    SOME OF THE WORST CASES OF RACIAL PREJUDICE IN WORLD HISTORY!

    The American people are thrilled to have their first African-American president.

    Speaking of Barack Obama—Barack Obama is a racial-minority individual and does not like racism:

    And Michelle Obama is a racial-minority individual and does not like racism:

    WORLDWIDE DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION RELATING TO SCANDALS:

    (I) I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed atrocious, racist, hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention. Many people know what Bush did. And many people will know what Bush did—even until the end of the world. Bush was absolute evil. Bush is now like a fugitive from justice. In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

    (II) It is opined that Bill Clinton committed terrifying, racist, hate crimes during his presidency, and I am not free to say anything further about it. ‘Be sure your sins will find you out’ (Numbers 32:23).

    (III) What if basically all racial-minority people would subscribe to the interpretations that George Herbert Walker Bush committed monstrous, racist, hate crimes while he was the President of the United States? It will eventually come out: it is only a matter of time.

    (IV) I know it may be hard to believe. However, Ronald Wilson Reagan committed horrible, racist, hate crimes during his presidency.
