Wolfowitz to Franken - "F**k You."

From Salon’s entertainment column, The Fix, comes this reported snippet of conversation from Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner:

This year’s kitsch-a-thon, though, sounds like it was far more somber than in the past. President Bush cracked no jokes at the dinner, instead honoring journalists who were killed in the line of duty in Iraq. (For a serviceable news report of the event, read this.) No one, it seems, was in much of a clowning mood. Take the exchange we heard about between comedian/smart-ass Al Franken and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz:

Franken: “Clinton’s military did pretty well in Iraq, huh?”

Wolfowitz: “Fuck you.”

It’s about time somebody gave that blowhard a proper cut-direct.

Um, which one? :)
