Oh, what a Dick

If you haven't seen the LIVE CNN footage Cesca posted of an off-camera citizen shouting "Go fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney, go fuck yourself!" at the most uncaring VP we've ever had, then go check it out.

And I really mean "uncaring." He clearly doesn't care about the disaster any more than he cares that someone threw his own epithet-driven phrase (which he used against Patrick Leahy last year) back in his face.

He tries to make a lame joke, and says that the off-camera person must be "a friend of John," then muffs the rest (though the reporters , of course, yuck it up as if Cheney's the reincarnation of Groucho Marx). But what does the "joke" mean? Is it possible he's reaching for a Kerry reference?! Is it possible he doesn't realize that the off-camera shouter is using his own words against him?

The reporter asks "Are you getting a lot of that, Mr. Vice President?" Let's make sure the answer is a resounding YES.
