what a politician. you hide in the shadows, creep around (or the phrase veep around could capture the movement) look like a hog. when you open your maw, ya show intellect and poise by letting the expletives fly. wow. what a statesman.

Cheney, who as president of the Senate was present for the picture day, turned to Leahy and scolded the senator over his recent criticism of the vice president for Halliburton's alleged war profiteering.
In response to Cheney, Leahy reminded Cheney that the vice president had once accused him of being a bad Catholic, to which Cheney replied either "f--- off" or "go f--- yourself."

Cheney says no regrets over swearing

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney has said he has no regrets about a bitter exchange with Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy in which the vice president used an obscenity.
Cheney, on a campaign swing through the Midwest battleground states of Iowa and Michigan, hurled the "F-word" at Leahy during a conversation between the two on Tuesday, according to congressional aides.
Asked if he cursed the Vermont senator, Cheney told the Fox News programme, the Cavuto Report, "Probably."
But he said "No" when asked whether he regretted it.
"I expressed myself rather forcefully, felt better after I had done it," Cheney said on Friday.
According to congressional aides, Leahy said hello to Cheney after a photo session on the senate floor.
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.
Leahy noted Republicans had accused Democrats of being anti-Catholic because they are opposed to some of President George W. Bush's anti-abortion judges, the aides said.
That's when Cheney used the obscenity in telling Leahy what he could do, aides said.
"I expressed my unhappiness with the way he's been conducting himself," Cheney told Fox. "He had challenged my integrity and I didn't like that. But most of all I didn't like the fact that after he'd done so that he wanted to act like everything is peaches and cream and I informed him of my view of his conduct."
Cheney said that was not the "kind of language I usually use."
"I think a lot of my colleagues felt what I had said badly needed to be said, that it was long overdue," he added.
lol, what a fucking prick! A lot of colleagues felt that somebody needed to tell Leahy to go fuck himself? man of integrity, indeed.
everyone says fuck all the time - because he's a politician it suddenly becomes illegal for him to swear? :confused:
