For a supposedly compassionate bunch, liberals sure do say some awful things. They have a knack for getting away with them, too.
Television talk show legend Dick Cavett is promoting a book of essays right now. This week, he appeared on Brian Lehrer’s popular public radio show in New York to reminisce about the many big-name guests he’s interviewed over the years, including John Lennon.
“So many of the people I [interviewed] are dead,” he noted wistfully. “Why is it never Dick Cheney?”
Even Lehrer, who is as liberal as they come, seemed taken aback. Did the great, lovable Dick Cavett just wish death on a living former vice president of the United States?
He did indeed. But no mind. Lehrer soon collected himself. “Cute stuff,” he said. Within moments all was forgiven, probably forgotten.
“I like your style,” Lehrer gushed.
I like your style. Cute stuff.

Yeah. What if.
