UPDATE 8: Just got word that Jon Stewart aired the clip! Please fill me in -- (I'm on the West coast)

We've got the Washington Post on board now, uncensored even:

While he was speaking, a young man shouted an obscenity at the vice-president, saying "Go fuck yourself, Mr Cheney" in an outburst that reflected frayed tempers and patience in the stricken region.

Keith Olberman, as I've been told by Cisco Pike, has just covered this story:
A Mississippi man greeted the V.P. with less than the usual Southern hospitality.

Story #3 "Cussin' Karma"

KO: The usual degree of filtering for Mr. Cheney's audience was apparently not available.

(Played Video)

KO: Friend of Pat Leahy. Who could he have meant? John Roberts? John Bolton? John Travolta? The other John Roberts from ABC(?)?
FOX News (click video) has posted the whole video of Cheney's news gaggle, BUT HAS EDITED THE SHOUTING SEGMENT COMPLETELY OUT AT 7:18.

It is now a story in itself at AFP (please freep it!).

(original story below the fold)

It is also a Top Video Story at CBS News.

CNN (who was showing it live) has also done a story on it.
Cafferty: "Didn't he say that to Patrick Leahy on the Senate floor?"

Blitzer: "Yes."

C: "So how could this have been the first time he heard it?"

B: "First time he heard it in this area."

C: "I'm sure it won't be the last."

Vive, The Rude Awakening Movement!!

It's in a story as well HERE and at the Los Angeles Times HERE..

I'm not kidding you.  In Mississippi, during a press conference, after telling the press that what needs to be done, gets done.  A resident walked up to the gaggle and said this:

"Go fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney!!  Go fuck yourself!!!

Cheney looked pissed.  Really pissed.

A reporter then asked him, "Do you get that a lot, Mr. Cheney?"

He replied, "That's the first time I've heard it. Must be a friend of John er.. uh.. never mind."

It sounded as though he was pushed away (probably by the secret service). CNN would not show this guy.

Is this a sign? Are we starting to hear the people revolt? I am thinking about this spontaneous event and I'm thinking that this moment should be repeated many, many times!!! Shall we call this...


Oh, and here's The Vice President's email:

This is it, guys!!! This is the rallying cry!!!

We are going to hear this on the news -- over and over again! It is a pivotal moment in this story!!!


And if we don't hear it this time, there's THOUSANDS of us that can repeat this rallying cry whenever we see a news camera!!! Let's make it the catchphrase of 2005!!! Remember, "Where's the beef?!"?(and you don't need the VP to be there, BTW.)

1. News Camera with Journalist - Check.

2. Live broadcast - Check.

3. "Go fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney!"

4. Repeat

Altogether now:

Go Fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney!"

"Go fuck yourself, Mr. Bush!"

Go fuck yourself!!

Go fuck yourself!!

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
