Yikes, guess someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning:<br><br>
"The incident occurred on Tuesday in a terse discussion between the two that touched on politics, religion and money, with Cheney finally telling Leahy to "f--- off" or "go f--- yourself," the aides said.<br><br>
""I think he was just having a bad day," Leahy was quoted as saying on CNN, which first reported the incident. "I was kind of shocked to hear that kind of language on the floor.""<br><br>
More here: <a href="http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=topNews&storyID=5509471" target="_blank">http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.j...toryID=5509471</a><br><br>
Of course with stuff like this:<br><b>Iraq Attacks Kill Over 100, Wound 320</b><br><a href="http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040625/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq_8" target="_blank">http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...e_mi_ea/iraq_8</a><br><br>
and this<br><b>Bush Is Interviewed in Inquiry on Leak of Operative's Name</b><br><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/24/politics/24CND-LEAK.html?hp=&pagewanted=print&position=" target="_blank">http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/24/po...rint&position=</a><br><br>
and this<br><b>Auditors Take Aim at Halliburton in Iraq</b><br><a href="http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20040615/us_nm/iraq_contracts_dc_7" target="_blank">http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...contracts_dc_7</a><br><br>
going on, I guess it has been of tough week for the Chief Chicken Hawk.<br><br>
He did get some good news though:<br>

I hope he comes all the way unwound for everyone to see.<br><br>
It sounds like Leahy handled himself well, though.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">According to congressional aides, Leahy said hello to Cheney following the taking of the Senate group photo on the floor of the chamber.<br><br>
Cheney, who is president of the Senate, then ripped into Leahy for the Democratic senator's criticism this week of alleged war profiteering in Iraq by Halliburton, the oil services company that Cheney once ran.</td>

Think about how much better these quotes would be if F U were a part of them.<br><br>
"When in the course of human events...f*** you!"<br><br>
"Four score and seven years ago...f*** you!"<br><br>
"The only thing we have to fear is...f*** you!"<br><br>
"If you can't stand the heat, f*** you!"<br><br>
"Ask not what you can do for your country; f*** you!"<br><br>
"Mr. Gorbachev, f*** you!"<br><br>
"My fellow Americans...f*** you!"

I thought this administration was returning high moral standards and all that to the White House. I'm confused. So this is the new moral standard?????<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

And why is this news? Who cares. It was a private conversation. I have never met a politican that did not curse once in a while during a heated argument. Of course, I worked in the Texas House where cursing is part of the dialect!<br><br>
Anyway, Leahy is one of the most liberal members of the Senate and has held up Bush's judicial nominations. I would probably curse at him too and I NEVER curse!<br><br>
The fact that this story was even leaked and became a headline today is sad! There are so many more important stories in the world that we could have been reading...

Leahy: What a schmuck!<br>
-More funding and stricter sentencing for hate crimes<br>
-NO on ending special funding for minority & women-owned business<br>
-YES on restricting violent videos to minors<br>
-NO on deducting Social Security payments on income taxes<br><br>
For more on what a dispicable human being Leahy is, check here:<br><a href="http://www.issues2000.org/Senate/Patrick_Leahy.htm" target="_blank">www.issues2000.org/Senate/Patrick_Leahy.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
"F" Cheney!<br>

If Cheney hadn't made such a big deal about his integrity and honesty and diginity, etc. I wouldn't have cared. I think Senators should cuss more often. It's more honest. but for poor Dick, hey, maybe he shouldn't be so pompous and self-righteous next time... but I'm glad he is for now because I'm <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh">:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

This is really sticking in my craw! How can you say this, what proof do you have that he is one of the worst humans on this planet? Did he molest you as a child? Or are you just one of those "compassionate conservatives?" Or just another republican footsoldier? A part of the great attack machine, where everyone who doesn't think that W was sent from God, must be a tool of the devil?

Oh, Levi's Mom, They LOVE when something sticks in our craws and they just can't get over that in the hallowed halls of Congress, Mr. Cheney has shown the most heinous disrespect and even they don't like it. But they can't admit that. It'd show weakness when really it would show consistent and respectable values.<br><br>
They SURE dont' wanna face that Cheney lost it and showed his true colors (perhaps that is why he is always isolated in a secret location)- he lost any remaining respect he had, and they can't say anything really, except to attack dear Mr. Leahy...ain't it sad?<br><br>
The cracks in this administration are showing and widening...their credibility is waning and they are their OWN worst enemies.<br><br>
We see it more every day!<br><br>
Don't sweat the obvious baiting...it's what they do when they "got nuthin'".<br><br>
OT:<br>
Did you see Jon Stewart on Larry "8 wives" King last night? He is freaking brilliant. That he showed Cheney basically screwing himself was fantabulous and I think that very telling video, probably, along with Mr. Moore's blockbuster- and may I add that I cannot stand Mr. Moore...his ego is so big I don't see how he can get through a door, but I respect the hell out of him- are waking up America whether she wants to keep sleeping or not.<br><br>
And anyone who rejects F9/11 out of hand...didn't see it. I have not seen it but anyone who rejects it out of hand without seeing it, is a coward in my opinion. There is little in that movie that I don't already know...so I don't know that I will see it, since it is over 50 miles away from me to go where it is showing, but I would still like to support it.<br><br>

Yes, I saw Jon Stewart on Larry King! He was so great, so funny! I thought Larry was going to fall off his chair he was laughing so hard!! Did you see Bill Maher when he was on Larry King's show?
