Former Vice President Dick Cheney appeared on Fox News earlier this week, and as usual, he couldn't resist denigrating President Obama. Wednesday, Democrat Alan Grayson appeared on Hardball and when asked for his response to Cheney's absurdity, he had a short, and not-so-sweet message for Dick:

Matthews: ..."How far is this guy gonna go so he gets to speak at the next Republican convention? Dick Cheney is unbelievable lately!"

Grayson: I don't know, you know, on the internet there's an acronym that's used to apply to situations like this, it's STFU. I don't think I can say that on the air, but I think you know what that means."

I couldn't have said it better myself. I must admit that I'm jealous of Rep. Grayson getting the opportunity to say those words on national teevee. Matthews turns the discussion to the right wing hissy fit over President Obama following tradition and bowing to the President of Japan and Grayson came back with this:

..."I remember Bush Jr. kissing Prince Abdullah on the cheek and then holding his hand for an extended period of time. Maybe if he let him get to second base then gas would be a dollar a gallon."
