09/12/2005: And BTW...
I thought Bill Maher on Friday’s Real Time (HBO) was just making a flying-by-seat-of-his-pants wisecrack about Celebs getting their ‘Catch-Phrases’ thrown back at them from the public in reference to the NOLA incident involving Darth’s visit and the “GO F--K YOUR SELF” shouted from the audience.
But here is part of the actual incident as related in a news story about the "shoutee," Dr. Ben Marble:
"I am no fan of Mr. Cheney because of several reasons," Marble wrote. "For those who don't know, Mr. Cheney is infamous for telling Senator [Pat] Leahy 'go fu** yourself' on the Senate floor. Also, I am not happy about the fact that thousands have died due to the slow action of FEMA, not to even mention the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time, i.e. Iraq."
As he stood about 10 feet away from Cheney and his friend and some camera operators from CNN and other media filmed the scene, Marble suddenly yelled, "Go fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney! Go fuck yourself, you asshole!"
Hey, at least Marble was polite. After all, he referred to Cheney as “Mr. Cheney.”
"I had no intention of harming anyone but merely wanted to echo Mr. Cheney's infamous words back at him," Marble wrote. "At that moment, I noticed the Secret Service guys with a panic-stricken look on their faces, like they were about to tackle me, so I calmly walked away back to my former house."
So - Maher was right on target in his quip. Oh, and BTW Darth; GO F--K YOUR SELF!!!
