Daschled...and...Cheneyed

Two new 2004 election verbs:

to daschle: "Already, there is a new verb floating around the Capitol: "Daschled." It describes what can happen to those, like the Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle, who oppose Republican legislation and then lose re-election in heavily Republican states."

to cheney: as in, Go Cheney yourself, How the Cheney would I know?, Cheney you., I don’t give a flying Cheney., Who the Cheney do you think you are?

To cheney stems from an encounter between Sen. Patrick Leahy and VP Dick Cheney that took place on the US Senate floor. Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who was on the receiving end of Cheney's ire, confirmed that the vice president used profanity during Tuesday's class photo.

A spokesman for Cheney confirmed there was a "frank exchange of views."
