Biden to Bush: Fire Cheney and Rummy

You just thought he was pissed off at Ashcroft about the torture memos. The WaPo is reporting today that Senator Joe Biden told W in the Oval office in front of Cheney that he should "get rid of" both the VP and the Secretary of Defense. Apparently Biden revealed this in a Rolling Stone article (they still get some political scoops!), telling the story thusly:

"I turned to Vice President Cheney, who was there, and I said, 'Mr. Vice President, I wouldn't keep you if it weren't constitutionally required.' I turned back to the president and said, 'Mr. President, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld are bright guys, really patriotic, but they've been dead wrong on every major piece of advice they've given you. That's why I'd get rid of them, Mr. President . . .' They said nothing. Just sat like big old bullfrogs on a log and looked at me."
