Mr. Cheney f***ed up

I’m not going to bother linking to the story. It annoys me. I am still have nightmares about the dangling heads of Nick Berg and Paul Johnson and Kim Sun-Il, and all the mainstream media will be prattling on about today is Dick Cheney’s use of the F word. He shouldn’t have said it. He had a bad day. He lost his cool. Many conservatives are cheering about it–Patrick Leahy deserved it, blah x 3. But I personally don’t like when public figures curse in public, whether it’s Cheney or Bono or John F’n Kerry. It’s fine for blogging (though the strongest you’ll get from me is a damned or a hell). It’s fine when you’ve stubbed your toe or dented the car or missed winning Powerball by 2 (or 3 or 4) numbers. Yes, it’s cathartic (who wouldn’t want to tell off a whiny Democrat), but I just don’t like it when conservative public figures use the worst profanity.

For one thing, it’s uncreative. There are better ways to lay into liberals. Where has the art of the insult gone? Wouldn’t one of these been better than a reflexive F U:

You’re a mouse studying to be a rat.
– Wilson Mizner

I regard you with an indifference bordering on aversion.
– Robert Louis Stevenson

If only you’d wash your neck, I’d wring it.
– John Sparrow

The best part of you ran down your mother’s legs.
– Jackie Gleason

Feel free to leave the profanity-free putdown you would have used on Leahy. (And for those who have been dying to leave one of these for me, go ahead if it gets you through the day.)
