Dick Cheney and the F Word

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

All this use of the euphonism, the F-Word, and references to potty mouth since the newest Dick Cheney fooflah.

It’s ‘fuck’ people. F-U-C-K. And if you’re worried about being filtered at libraries and in grade schools, ask yourself: do you want to write something that’s equivalent to a G rating from Disney? Say the word, accept the filter, be proud of your raunch–it has history (but it’s not an acronym). If you can’t say it for yourself, say it for your country.

Anyway, I was over reading Ralph’s own colorful discussion on Cheney, and I had to drop him a comment that I just can’t get all that fired up over this issue. To be honest, I think “Fuck yourself” is about the most honest thing Cheney has said in three years.

I mean, compare it to the following:

“I had other priorities in the 60’s than military service”

” Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. “

“Iraq could decide on any given day to provide biological or chemical weapons to a terrorist group or to individual terrorists,…The war on terror will not be won until Iraq is completely and verifiably deprived of weapons of mass destruction.”

“The plan was criticized by some retired military officers embedded in TV studios. But with every advance by our coalition forces, the wisdom of that plan becomes more apparent. “

“We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. ”

I’d much rather have Cheney on the floor of the Senate telling Senators to go fuck themselves, then using the Middle East to demonstrate exactly how it’s done.
