McSweeney's has a very funny quiz asking who said the following quotes, Dick Cheney or Phil Leotardo of The Sopranos. (Answers at the bottom.)

And while it's hard to tell much difference between the actual quotes from our sleazy, foul-mouthed VP and those from the amoral fictional mobster, there is one clear difference between them: Leotardo was shot on the show, while Cheney really shot someone.

1. "Except for the occasional heart attack, I never felt better."

2. "You sound like a damn politician with all these excuses."

3. "What can you do—throw money at the problem?"

4. "He's never won anything, as best I can tell."

5. "Next time, there won't be a next time."

6. "You couldn't fuckin' retire?"

7. "Principle is OK up to a certain point, but principle doesn't do any good if you lose."

8. "First off, it wasn't an offer. It's my position."

9. "Everyone knows that you're not really a man unless you own a gun."

10. "I'll take that Discman and I'll ram it up your box."

11. "You want compromise?"

12. "Go fuck yourself."

OMG Cheney said it on the Senate floor, but somehow the Republicans are the good Christians, the holier-than-tho party? Please.
