The Democrats’ newest quote machine was in fine form Thursday, suggesting that former Vice President Dick Cheney is a vampire.
Speaking on Hardball, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) denounced Cheney’s attacks on President Barack Obama, who posited that Obama was “dithering” in failing to endorse a troop surge.
“I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes, because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking,” Grayson quipped. “But my response is this: He’s just angry because the president doesn’t shoot old men in the face. But by the way, when he was done speaking, did he just then turn into a bat and fly away?”
Matthews, somewhat aghast, replied: “Oh God — we gotta keep a level here. Let me ask you this: Don’t you have any Republican friends?”
