…According to aides, Cheney has been upset with Leahy, who's been critical of the vice president's relationship to Halliburton and its rebuilding contracts in Iraq. As the two met on the floor, an exchange broke out. Leahy then reminded Cheney he once called him a bad Catholic. Then -- boom!….

I have tried to avoid the F word on this site. But Cheney made me do it.
"On the Senate floor, Dick Cheney flipped out and told Senator Pat Leahy to go f-himself. Can you believe that? Aren't these the same guys trying to fine Howard Stern for bad language?" —Jay Leno

How ironic that the Repugnicants are going down in flames on "Family
Values" You might find this news interesting as another State Senator
(GOP) bites the dust for drugs and carrying a concealed weapon:
Cheney (another Nebraskan) did the ultimate "Oops" in Congress with his
profanity. Wonder which side of his mouth he said this one out of. As
Kerry said, "Think he's cursing now? Wait until November 2."
And we were worried about Bill Clinton!

Well, I think that a lot of my colleagues felt that what I had said badly needed to be said, that it was long overdue. Dick “F--- You” Cheney in a FOX interview with Neil Cavuto
Some notable uncivil incidents among elected officials from years past:
_1985: Thomas Downey, D-N.Y., accused Rep. Robert K. Dornan, R-Calif., of yanking his tie and threatening "bodily harm." Dornan said he only "straightened" the tie although he conceded he had called Downey a "wimp."
_1985: As House members argued over vote counts in a late-night session, Majority Leader James Wright, a Texas Democrat, threatened to punch two Republicans in the mouth.
_1995: Following a testy exchange in a Friday night debate, Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., and Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Calif., grappled with each other outside the House chamber before police and other lawmakers separated them.
_1995: In what was dubbed "the brawl in the hall," Rep. Sam Gibbons, D-Fla., compared Republicans to the Nazis he fought in World War II then engaged in a hallway shouting match with Rep. Bill Thomas, R-Calif., who said Gibbons pulled his tie.
_2004: Vice President Dick Cheney told Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) to “go *uck yourself” during a photo session in the US Senate. Cheney later said he was not sorry and it made him feel better once he cursed at the Senator from Vermont.

My local, down the street theater has decided to forgo the "R" rating
on Faren. 911 and instead, treat it as a PG-13. This theater, which has
posted lovely political messages on the marquee for years (which have recently
gotten a little more overt and agitated) is already sold out for Friday
and Saturday. I'm going to have to wait until Wednesday to see it! But I
don't really care... I'm just glad they're admitting those over 13! Check out
this article in the Oakland Tribune-- it also details how an Oakland
resident was harassed by the FBI for speaking out against Bush, Bin Laden, etc....
Have a lovely [day] and enjoy your Florida sunshine!

White House axes Laura Bush interview after heated Irish TV talk with George W.
…No explanation was given for the schedule change, but journalists travelling with the Bush entourage in Europe noted that the cancellation had come a day after George W. Bush's less-than-sunny showing in his RTE exclusive.
During that interview, given on Thursday in Washington, Bush displayed annoyance and at one point lost his temper when he was contradicted by Irish journalist Carole Coleman…

Ode to the F-Word
Dick Cheney said a curse word,
Right on the Senate floor.
The news guys choke back giggles as Dick's F-word they report.
The rest is here:
An artist rendering of the platform of the proposed space elevator is shown in this undated handout photo. President Bush wants to return to the moon and put a man on Mars, but scientist Bradley C. Edwards has an idea that's really out of this world: an elevator that climbs 62,000 miles into space. While outsiders laugh, the institute Edwards works for has a NASA contract and he thinks an initial version could be operating in 15 years. (HO/Institute for Scientific Research)
