Family Values? Vice-president Cheney: 'I felt better' after saying the F-bomb to Senator Leahy

What's happened to the family values of the Republican party?

The Salt Lake Tribune -- Cheney: 'I felt better' after dropping the F-bomb on Leahy:

[L]awmakers from both parties lament what has become another low point in political civility.
In the latest episode, Vice President Dick Cheney used an obscenity beginning with 'f' in an exchange with Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., on the Senate floor where members had gathered for a group photo. 'I was kind of shocked to hear that kind of language on the floor,' Leahy said of the incident this week.
Maybe he shouldn't have been. Just days before, Senate Judiciary Committee Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, had referred to a proposal by Leahy to subpoena Justice Department memos on prisoner interrogation as a 'dumb-ass' idea.
Cheney, interviewed by Fox News Friday, said he had no regrets about his remarks to Leahy. 'I felt better after I said it,' and he added, 'A lot of my colleagues felt what I said badly needed to be said.' "
