I was frist!

If you read the story of the fellow who told Cheney to go fuck himself, then you probably read my description of the event. As soon as I saw it live on CNN I sent off an e-mail to Raw Story. They ran it, and my words spread throughout the Internet in minutes. Too cool.

Here are copies of the e-mails between Raw Story and me.

Paul to

Just watching CNN, Cheney in Gulfsport, Miss. droning on with usual political bs, and off camera we hear "Go fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney. Go fuck yourself." Camera remains on Cheney while we hear scuffling in the background. Reporter asks Cheney, "Are you getting a lot of that Mr. Vice President?" He replies, "First time I've heard it., Must be a friend of John..., er, ah - never mind." Laughter from VP and reporters."
From Raw Story to Paul

From Paul to Raw Story

I played TIVO back several time when writing email. My quote is spot on.
"go fuck yourself" comment came at 9:27 am Pacific time. Was not censored, was a live feed. Have it on TIVO.
