Are They Losing It?
By MAUREEN DOWD

WASHINGTON

One thing you've got to say for Dick Cheney: No one will ever again dismiss the vice presidency as a pitcher of warm spit. Mr. Major League Potty Mouth has shown that, with obsequiousness to the president and obtuseness to the facts, a vice president can run the world. Right into the ground.

Re: your column of June 27.

If memory serves, John Nance Garner referred to the vice presidency as "a pitcher of warm piss." Family newspapers changed it to spit.
