Cheney and Leahy throw down

Most of the rhymes kicked therein cannot be quoted in a family publication, but observers gave Mr. Cheney credit for his deceptively laid-back flow. Mr. Leahy was applauded for managing to rhyme the phrases "unethical for certain," "crude oil spurtin'," and "like Halliburton."

missed it the first time, loved it the second. My favorite:

“Once again,” Mr. Cheney replied (quite obviously quoting a lyric from Ice Cube’s 1990 album, “AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted”), “it’s on.”

I don't know why, but I love the current use of the word snap.

Mr. Leahy then busted a double-horizontal on Mr. Cheney's ass.

Nice Nice Nice!
