``Oh, it's like that?'' Mr. Cheney queried.

New Details Surface:
As a quick-thinking senatorial aide switched on the Senate's public-address system and cued up the infamous ``Seven Minutes of Funk'' break, Mr. Leahy and Mr. Cheney went head-to-head in what can only be described as a ``take no prisoners'' freestyle rap battle. Despite the fact that both participants brought their A-game and succeeded in dropping mad scientifics, the bout seemed to end in a draw.

    According to [an] aide, Mr. Cheney . . . responded with a barnyard epithet, urging Mr. Leahy to perform an anatomical sexual impossibility.

    It's not impossible if you've got a big enough Cheney.

    Turns out politicians aren't the only ones fighting in Capitol Hill. A couple of reporters got into a fist fight. The article even includes screen captures from a video camera that caught the fight.
