Cheney orders the f-bombing of the Senate floor

Reports are flying that Vice President Cheney (less than politely) instructed Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) to “go [expletive] himself” while in the chamber for the official Senate photo. Wonkette offers a much less redacted version of the altercation, which has been confirmed (via CNN) by the Vermont Senator’s office as well as the Veep’s office (although they dismiss the idea that Cheney would use such language).

Apparently, Cheney has taken offense to Leahy’s call for a probe into the awarding of a no-bid contract for Iraq rebuilding to his former employer, Halliburton.

I’m starting the countdown to Democratic “outrage” and charges that he has “violated the sanctity of the Senate” right…… NOW. (Synchronize your watches.)
