I'm really, really gonna miss this band of raving psychopaths currently inhabiting the Executive Branch. Not so much for their extraordinary leadership in times of adversity and hardship, but for moments like this one in which they have displayed such über-classiness indicative of what we've come to expect from world leaders.
And what does Mr. Dick "Go-Fuck-Yourself" Cheney have to say about that incident four years later (via CNN):
Cheney: Senator deserved the f-word
Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday that Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, deserved it when Cheney launched the f-word at him in 2004.
In an interview with "Fox News Sunday," Cheney was asked if he had any second thoughts or embarrassment. "No. I thought he merited it at the time," Cheney said, laughing.
Hahahahaha! He's right...it's H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S to tell a person to "go fuck" himself in the chamber of the United States Senate.
I don't think words alone were enough, however. He should have given Leahy a wet-willie followed up by a super-atomic wedgie. (That's the one where you're forced to eat your undies at the end.) That would have really showed Pat just who the hell he decided to accuse of not playing fairly when he brought up the no-bid contracts awarded to Halliburton in Iraq to the company's former CEO who just now happens to be the Vice President of the United States and President of the Senate.
Class. Grace. Elegance. These words by themselves are not enough to describe the character of the current administration. We must come up with a new word. One that captures the all-encompassing awesomeness of the Bush/Cheney duo.
"Clasgracequence© TM". Yes, that is it. As a sort of an end of the year wrap up/tribute to the outgoing administration, let's take a look at some more displays of Bush/Cheney clasgracequence:
"Just a one-finger victory salute." Ha! Awesome!
Gnarly! He said shit to the Prime Minister of Great Britain.
So he's massaging the Chancellor of Germany. Big deal.
Yep. I'm gonna miss 'em.
