Today's essay topic: compare and contrast the Washington papers descriptions of the altercation between Dick Cheney and Senator Leahy (D-VT):

Here's how the Washington Post describes the encounter:
"The exchange ended when Cheney offered some crass advice. `Fuck yourself'" [wp]

Washington Times says:
"Mr. Cheney then responded with a barnyard epithet, urging Mr. Leahy to perform an anatomical sexual impossibility." [wt]

Extra points for those who incorporate "fair & balanced," "uniter not divider," "restoring honor & dignity to the White House," historical controversy regarding the definition of sexual relations, the Eyeshot autofellator interview [e], and the metaphor of the Senate as saucer to the House's boiling teacup.
