Oh, I don't really care. I mainly think it's funny. Cheney has a high-stress job that I would not want. You just don't expect it from a guy with his image.

I don't think we have a generally accepted sarcasm smiley here. And if FYM would have to choose one, then it's certain we will never agree on it.
Anyway, while I have to say your first comment wasn't clearly distinguishable as being sarcastic, it is now to me.

C ya!

Well, sorry my thread is stupid

In the grand scheme of things I don't care either, but I do think it's undignified for the VP to say that to a Senator. That's just my opinion that I *think* I have the right to have

sure everybody is human

most people are also aware - and I'm quite sure Cheney is - that with your position come certain responsibilities and you need to act in a certain way to not unnecessarely offend people

it may be his god given right to say this but it wasn't a smart thing to do
Cheney was wrong to say this and I would guess even he recognizes that

it's no more "uncouth" than Bono saying the F word on prime time TV in front of millions of viewers. I guess Cheney got fed up with the "rabid dogs" on the *left,* and deservedly so.

I'm surprised it took this long.

You go, Dick.

Geez, that was a worthless read. The only reason this made news is that the Republican party is synonymous with "family values" and this recent swelling of the FCC. How are we suppose to protect our children when the VP of the US uses foul languange [sarcasm]. It's nothing like Bono using it. Bono is not censoring every other American that uses it. Ok so some will say "he used it in private", it doesn't matter he is suppose to hold himself in a proffesional manner when working. It's somewhat hypocritical and that's why it made news. I couldn't give a fuck, but it serves him right that it made news.

Sure, people make mistakes. I can only hope Cheney is able to control himself a little bit better when talking to Iranian or Saudi officials. This guy is supposed to be a diplomat!

I honestly couldn't care less. No, he probably shouldn't have said it, but his use of bad language is the least of my concerns about Cheney.

It's not that you made this into a thread Mrs S. It's about it being news and something for people to even talk about. If the rest of the world cared as indepth as FYM this world would be such a different place

It'd be better if he hadn't done it. I agree, ideally there's more decorum in a place like the Senate. I think Leahy was shocked. Someone wrote a column about the lack of civility in politics, and went all the way back to the eighteenth century about the whole "my opponent's a crud" mentality. So this is nothing new. If you ask me, it was worse back in the '20's when the KKK accused progressives of, uh, "being born in a nr graveyard at midnight". Ugh.

There's a joke going around on the blogs that Kerry should pick Leahy as his running mate, which would give us a Cheney--Leahy debate this fall.
