TLP: It's Not a Very Long List

Anyone remember Dennis Miller? Not surprising. As a refresher, when he was a comedian, he succeeded mainly in cracking himself up. Whatever.

In his latest gig as a radio talk show host, he's trading yuks with Dick Cheney. They were reliving the good old days of 2004 (only a year after "Mission Accomplished" was declared in Iraq) and Miller brought up the best-known example of Cheney's razor-sharp debating skills. Specifically, when his argument with Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy ended with, "Fuck yourself."

Think Progress somehow found Miller on the radio:

MILLER: By the way, my, I also want to thank you, on the list of things I feel I should thank you for, almost kicking Patrick Leahy’s ass. Thank you very much.

CHENEY: Hehehehe.

MILLER: I love that move. One of my favorite stories. Muttering that.

CHENEY: You’d be surprised how many people liked that. That’s sort of the best thing I ever did.


As usual, the story is not complete without the comments. Stay classy, Dick!

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

I don't agree with his policies, but I admire Cheney's ability to drive the left batty with his terse self-confidence.

Same goes for Rumsfeld. His press conferences were a thing of beauty.

Amen on Rumsfeld. As soon as he started with the "known knowns," "known unknowns" and "unknown unknowns," the game was over.

It's funnier when Jon Stewart says it.
