Go f**k yourself

Poor Dick. He is dragged away from his fishing vacation in Wyoming to haul his ass around the Gulf Coast just to hear this: "Go fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney. Go fuck yourself." That was an off-camera protester who rudely interrupted Cheney's photo-op with reporters in Gulfport, Miss.

He tries to ignore it until directly questioned by a CNN reporter: "Are you getting a lot of that Mr. Vice President?"

Cheney's response: "First time I've heard it., Must be a friend of John ... , er, ah -- never mind." And then promptly goes back to boring his audience to death. [Video at Crooks & Liars]

P.S. Wonder if Charles Krauthammer is equally impressed with this guy's "earthy authenticity" -- y'know the kind that Cheney served up for Pat Leahy last year.
