McCain "bitchslaps" Cheney for saying picking Palin for VP was a ‘mistake’

Urban Dictionary: bitchslap: "Bitchslap" -- "The literal and/or metaphoric slapping or whacking someone in order to knock some sense into them."

This is funny--and of course both Cheney (about Palin) and McCain (about torture) are right (and stating the obvious)--

McCain slaps back at Cheney for saying picking Palin for vice president was a ‘mistake’ - NY Daily News: "Sen. John McCain slapped back at Dick Cheney for criticizing his pick of Sarah Palin as his 2008 running mate by making a barbed remark about the former vice president's torture policies. Cheney told ABC News in an interview that aired Sunday that Palin's nomination was "a mistake" and wasn't "well handled" by the McCain campaign. While saying Palin was an "attractive candidate," Cheney argued that she didn't have enough experience to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. When played those remarks during an interview on "Fox & Friends," Monday morning, McCain chuckled before shooting back with a caustic quip. "I'm always glad to get comments four years later," the Arizona Republican said. "Look, I respect the vice president. He and I had strong disagreements as to whether we should torture people or not. I don't think we should have.""

You know the GOP is in trouble when all we have is old geezers arguing over history!
