Hendricks: Biden's behavior laughable compared to Cheney's

The recent pearl clutching by our local conservatives over Joe Biden's supposed bad behavior during the recent VP debate is pretty laughable. Particularly when one reflects on the behavior of former VP Dick Cheney.

On June 24th, 2004, the floor of the Senate then VP Cheney told Sen. Pat Leahy to "Go {crude euphemism for sexual congress} yourself." This was widely reported at the time including by CNN /www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/06/24/cheney.leahy/index.html but I don't seem to recall the conservative outrage at that point. Hmmm...must have missed that.

Too bad, if say, we wanted to discuss substance instead of style the local usual suspects could explain how come Romney won't release any other tax returns, or how the relationship between a woman and her physician should be the business of the Republican Party or how come it is critically important that the tax rate on the richest people in the county is just too darn high.

But no, Joe was mean to their little VP candidate. Tsk Tsk.
