From Juan Cole:

I think the right's crusade against cursing is idiotic - another way to gloss over the real America and the real people who live in it that curse all the time. Juan Cole has an excellent take on the VP's recent "Go fuck yourself" to Pat Leahy:

"Should Cheney be Fined $275,000?

Vice President Dick Cheney shouted "go fuck yourself!" at inoffensive Senator Patrick Leahy, Democrat of Vermont, at a photo opportunity on the Senate floor earlier this week. On Friday he told Fox Cable News, "I expressed myself rather forcefully, felt better after I had done it."

Now, it seems to me that the Senate floor is public space, paid for by the public. And in this regard, there is no difference between it and the public airwaves, which the public also owns."

Of all the things Cheney has said and done, that is the least offiensive!
