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.
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!
