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.

But...

Jebus told him to say that. You liberals just don't understand.

Heres the system:
Liberal says: But the Bush admin did this- doesn't that seem stupid, immoral and/or unethical?

Conservative has several options: "But this is War", "But they're strong christians so nothing they do could be truly immoral", "We've got to protect 'Merica, they had to do it".
