From Eschaton comes this ridiculously funny New Yorker piece about Cheney's use of profanity on the Senate floor:

?Oh, it's like that?? Mr. Cheney queried.

?Whut? Whut?? Mr. Leahy shot back.

?Once again,? Mr. Cheney replied (quite obviously quoting a lyric from Ice Cube's 1990 album, ?AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted?), ?it's on.?

As a quick-thinking senatorial aide switched on the Senate's public-address system and cued up the infamous ?Seven Minutes of Funk? break, Mr. Leahy and Mr. Cheney went head-to-head in what can only be described as a ?take no prisoners? freestyle rap battle.
