It's too bad it wasn't caught on camera. Then he would get to pay the $250,000 fine that the FCC wants to lay out against people like Howard Stern, Janet Jackson and Bono. I'm all for free speech although I don't let my children swear or listen to programs that use offensive language.
It seems that everyone is being very dismissive about it. I would expect a little more decorum on the senate floor regardless of how people feel about each other. I don't mean to say that this is an "impeachable" event, but they did blast Kerry for it.
