Off camera, a protester shouts, "Go fuck yourself, Mr.


Go fuck yourself."

The camera remains on Cheney while we hear scuffling in the background.

CNN's reporter asks Cheney, "Are you getting a lot of that Mr.

Vice President?"

Cheney replies, "First time I've heard it.

Must be a friend of John..., er, ah - never mind."

In June of 2004, Dick Cheney told Senator Patrick J.

Leahy (Vt.), to "Fuck yourself", after Mr.

Leahy brought up Cheney's ties to Halliburton, Halliburton's sole-source contracts in Iraq and President Bush's judicial nominees.

Ironically, the exchange on the Senate floor occurred on the same day the Senate passed legislation described as the "Defense of Decency Act" by 99 to 1.
