Bob Woodward: Cheney Cursed And Hung Up On Me After Book Was Published...
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2006/10/08/bob-woodward-c...

From NBC:

MR. RUSSERT: Have you spoken to the president or the vice president since this book came out?

MR. WOODWARD: The vice president called me I guess as it was coming out 10 days ago.

MR. RUSSERT: And?

MR. WOODWARD: Well, he called to complain that I was quoting him about the meetings with Henry Kissinger that he and the president had. I had interviewed Vice President Cheney last year a couple of times at length about material I'm gathering on the Ford administration, on-the-record interviews, but he volunteered, he said, "Oh, by the way, Henry Kissinger comes in" and he, Dick Cheney, sits down with him once a month and the president every two or three months. And Cheney was upset I was quoting him. And I said, "Look, this--on-the-record doesn't have anything to do with Ford, you volunteered that." He then used a word which I can't repeat on the air. And I said, "Look, on the record is on the record," and he hung up on me.

1. Woodward may want to periodically...
...check the brakes on his car from now on. Ol' Deadeye doesn't forgive and he doesn't forget.

4. Seems like Dick "Fucking" Cheney....
...has a problem with anger management. I thought men of gravitas never lose their cool, of course "Fucking" Cheney and cool in the same sentence is an oxymoron of universal proportion.

7. I Just Had A Bizarre Vision
Of the Secret Service trying to remove Darth from the Whitehouse on 1/20/08 while he hunkers down screaming "Fuck You" and having at 'em with a pheasant-blasting implement. Could be the basis of a screenplay...

11. Reminds me of an old SNL (I think) skit
about 'Captain Kirk' refusing to leave the 'Enterprise' set after the last episode.

6. How Uncivil. G.H.W. Bush Would Not Approve.
G.H.W. Bush Saddened By "Incivility"

(It might disturb Babs' beautiful mind).

8. Just watched that weird interview.
Here's my impression:

TR: Bob Woodward has written a book that says the Bush administration are a bunch of liars.

BW: That's right and here's the classified document to prove it.

TR: Cheney says you're incorrect.

BW: See, I told you they are liars.

TR: Kissinger says you're incorrect.

BW: Once again they are proving what liars they are.

on and on....

14. "Bull shit - a metaphor for this administration."
That's what I heard Woodward say when they played it on AAR this afternoon.

19. I thought that Woodward sounded a little upset, though
He knows that now his access to the top dogs is shot to hell. They'll never speak to him again.
