Dick Cheney and Self-Gratification

Vice President Dick Cheney, in Gulfport, Mississippi on a tour of the Katrina hurricane zone, was told to "go fuck yourself" twice on live television. [WATCH THE VIDEO HERE]

The CNN reporter interviewing Cheney then asked, "Are you getting a lot of that Mr. Vice President?" [HAVE YOU WATCHED THE VIDEO YET?]

Cheney replies, "First time I've heard it., Must be a friend of John..., er, ah - never mind." [SERIOUSLY; CHECK IT OUT]

Laughter ensues from the VP and reporters. Directly aftward, Cheney continues an ongoing monologue on what to do about hurricane debris: "But it's a question about what you do with the debris in terms of your toxic waste problem you've got to worry about in terms of where you're going to put it..." [LAST CHANCE ON THIS PAGE]

Why is this interesting? Because Cheney is blathering on about this and that, ignoring the fact that many people in this country are just plumb tired of what they see as government inefficiency and inaction -- and those people are not just going to stand by and take it anymore; they're going to stand by and swear at the Vice President.

He seems to take it pretty well..Almost like he's used to it.

Whoever that guy is, I want to buy him a drink and shake his hand.

I expect that Cheney doesn't care what people call him. It might make you feel better, but it is not going to impact him.

He is a cranky old bastard.
