Hagel slams Cheney for being a dick

Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) rips Dick "I had other priorities" Cheney a new one for his 'callousness towards the public and the troops on the ground.'

Hagel told NPR's Dianne Rehm on Tuesday that the “So?” comment was not surprising considering Cheney’s “character”:
"Well, I don’t think it was out of character for the Vice President. I have always believed that leaders should not be governed by polls, and obviously the vice president does and this president has noted that."
Yesterday, on NPR’s On Point, Hagel again went after Cheney, saying that his sense of Bush’s “burden” in the war is ironic coming from a Vietnam draft dodger:
"There is a credibility gap here, at least a little bit, with the Vice President, as far as I’m concerned. Here’s a guy who got five deferments during the Vietnam War, said publicly that didn’t work into his plans."
