Cheney: yeah, I said ‘f*ck yourself’, so what?
Counting down to January 20, god, it can’t get here soon enough. It’s time to sweep all of the low-class clowns out. (Think Progress):
This morning on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked Vice President Cheney about his now infamous June 2004 exchange with Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT), when he told Leahy to “f*ck yourself.” Cheney confirmed that he used the obscenity, saying, “I thought he merited it at the time”:
WALLACE: Did you tell Senator Leahy, “bleep yourself”?
CHENEY: I did.
WALLACE: Any qualms, second thoughts, or embarrassment?
CHENEY: No, I thought he merited it at the time and we’ve since patched over that wound.
And BONUS Cheney points for this whopper of a hallucination — he tells Chris Wallace on Faux News that the high point of the Bush Administration was….9/11. OMG.
WALLACE: Highest moment the last eight years?
CHENEY: Hmmm. Highest moment in the last eight years? Well, I think the most important, the most compelling, was 9/11 itself, and what that entailed, what we had to deal with. The way in which that changed the nation, and set the agenda for what we had to deal with as an administration.
Was that high point while Cheney was in an undisclosed location, or when Dear Leader was looking like a deer in the headlights and reading “The Pet Goat”? Jed of The Jed Report noted:
Wallace nudged the vice president to add that 9/11 was also the low moment of the Bush years, but it tells you something about the darkness of Cheney’s mind that this was the first thing to come to his mind when looking for bright spots over the past eight years was 9/11.
