Northern Virginia Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA, 8th District) reportedly called Vice President Cheney an "ass-kisser," adding that President Bush doesn't read books, only reads the sports section of the newspaper and surrounds himself with people who just tell him what he wants to hear.
Moran told the editor of the left-leaning website The Raw Story that Bush has "surrounded himself with ideological sycophants. And the biggest ass-kisser of all is Dick Cheney."
Contacted by phone by 630 WMAL this morning, Moran did not deny making the remarks. Rather, he said the quotes were "taken out of context." Moran declined to elaborate or answer questions about the interview on the air.
Hmmmm, how can calling someone an a$$ kisser be taken "out of context". Frankly I don't know if that's possible, it means what it means, period.
Seems to me that the just 6 months ago Bush was an ignorant hayseed having his strings pulled by the manevolent Dick Cheney and Karl Rove. The left has discarded that old tired caricature if favor of Bush as the evil genious surrounded by brown nosing yes men conspiring to carry out his diabolical agenda. The vitriol that eminates from these dimwits never ceases to amaze me.
