As potty-mouthed vice presidents go, Dick Cheney is utterly unrepentant about his 2004 slip of the F-bomb in which he told Pat Leahy to go "f--- yourself." Dennis Miller on his radio show yesterday thanked the former veep for "almost kicking Patrick Leahy's a--," reports Think Progress. Cheney responds: "You'd be surprised how many people liked that. That's sort of the best thing I ever did." (More Dick Cheney stories.)
