Cheap Gas

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) was asked by Chris Matthews what he thought about Dick Cheney’s reaction to President Obama bowing to the Emperor of Japan.

What about Bush Junior? I remember Bush Junior kissing Prince Abdullah on the cheek, and then holding his hand for an extended period of time. Maybe if he’d let him get to second base, gasoline would be a dollar a gallon.

Thanks for that image.

Rep. Grayson was also asked about Dick Cheney’s comment that President Obama was “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.” He replied that he thought that Mr. Cheney should STFU (and had to explain to Chris Matthews what that meant). Given that Mr. Cheney, also famous for telling Sen. Patrick Leahy to go f*ck himself, basically accused the president of treason, I think telling him to shut the f*ck up was the height of diplomacy.

HT to SFDB.
