What the [Expletive]?


The exchange ended when Cheney offered some crass advice.

"Fuck yourself," said the man who is a heartbeat from the presidency...

During the 2000 campaign, Bush pointed out a New York Times reporter to Cheney and said, without knowing the microphone was picking it up, "major-league [expletive]."

So "fuck" is okay to print but "asshole" isn't? I don't get it.

Also, take note of the Republican hypocrisy, going all nutty because Kerry cursed in a Rollingstone interview but defending Cheney on this because "he was being honest."


UPDATE: Just want to add what the Republicans actually said, because it's pretty incredible:

"The vice president is a tough human being, and he's very honest, and his integrity is his most cherished attribute,'' said Senator Orrin G. Hatch, Republican of Utah. "I don't blame anybody for standing up for their own integrity.''

Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee, said, "I think the vice president said what he meant to say and felt better after he said it.''

Next time I see Lamar Alexander, I need to remember to tell him to go fuck himself. Apparently, he's okay with that as long as I feel better afterwards.
