I Wish I Lived In A World In Which There Were Such A Thing As Irony

Here's something else Dick Cheney said last night on Larry King:

CHENEY: I think there's a special obligation on major news organizations, when they're dealing with what can sometimes be life-and-death matters, to get it right.

This is the point at which Larry King, if he had any self respect, would have dumped a bucket of urine on Cheney.

Instead, King asked Cheney whether Newsweek had gotten the story wrong on purpose:

KING: Do you think it's deliberate?

...then adding:

KING: By the way, Mr. Vice President, the bottom of your shoe is particularly delicious today.

The funny thing is, Larry King keeps a bucket of urine under his desk. The rumor is he soaks his feet in it as a way to get into the interviewing spirit.
