New Democrat slogan includes f-word

AFP offers us "Vice President Cheney heckled on hurricane tour", informing us that the VP was talking to reporters in Gulfport, MS when a bystander came up and, in AFP's words, said:

"Go f---(expletive) yourself Mr. Cheney!"
"Go f---(expletive) yourself!"

My sources inform me that the "f---" above is indeed the word "fuck."
Needless to say, those at Daily "Screw 'em" Kos are ecstatic about this news:

Is this a sign? Are we starting to hear the people revolt? I am thinking about this spontaneous event and I'm thinking that this moment should be repeated many, many times!!! Shall we call this...
Oh, and here's The Vice President's email: vic...
This is it, guys!!! This is the rallying cry!!!
We are going to hear this on the news -- over and over again! It is a pivotal moment in this story!!!

Now, if only Howard Dean will adopt this as the new Democratic Party slogan we'll have Republican rule for the next century.
The Drossacks also provide this (unconfirmed) CNN transcript:

[Jack] Cafferty: "Didn't he say that to Patrick Leahy on the Senate floor?"
[Wolf] Blitzer: "Yes."
C: "So how could this have been the first time he heard it?"
B: "First time he heard it in this area."
C: "I'm sure it won't be the last."

Wolf Blitzer: "They are so black", plus Elijah Cummings

From Sep. 1's The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer:

"You simply get chills every time you see these poor individuals, as Jack Cafferty just pointed out, so tragically, so many of these people, almost all of them that we see, are so poor and they are so black, and this is going to raise lots of questions for people who are watching this story unfold."

Here's one of those questions from Sep. 2:

CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday afternoon repeatedly prodded reluctant Congressional Black Caucus member Elijiah Cummings to blame racism for delays in rescuing hurricane victims in New Orleans. Blitzer asked Cummings on The Situation Room: "Do you believe, if it was, in fact, a slow response, as many now believe it was, was it in part the result of racism?" When Cummings demurred from such a blanket accusation, Blitzer wouldn't give up: "There are some critics who are saying, and I don't know if you're among those, but people have said to me, had this happened in a predominantly white community, the federal government would have responded much more quickly. Do you believe that?"

Cummings reply:

"I think that that's a pretty good probability. The fact is, though, and keep in mind another thing, Wolf, we have not even seen emerge from all of this those people who have passed away. There's another wave coming over this thing. Number one, we have to bring relief. Number two, we have to reconstruct and reconstruct people's lives...."
