MSNBC's Chris Matthews and Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson (FL) had an interesting exchange using language that today's teens would certainly embrace, but not likely to endear him to literary buffs.
In a discussion about former VP Dick Cheney:
"On the Internet there's an acronym that's used to apply to situations like this. It's called 'STFU,'" Grayson told Matthews. "I don't think I can say that on the air, but I think you know what that means."
"Well give me the first part," Matthews asked.
"Shut," Grayson responded.
"Oh, I gotcha," Matthews said. "Stop talking, in crude language. Well, I don't think you're going to get [Cheney] to do that."
