During an appearance yesterday on Hardball, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) jokingly suggested that former Vice President Dick Cheney is a vampire.

Chris Matthews asked Grayson what he thinks of Cheney’s attacks on President Obama for “dithering” on Afghanistan.

“Well, my response is — and by the way, I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes, because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking,” said Grayson. “But my response is this: He’s just angry because the president doesn’t shoot old men in the face. But by the way, when he was done speaking, did he just then turn into a bat and fly away?”

Even Matthews, no Cheney fan himself, was shocked: “Oh God — we gotta keep a level here. Let me ask you this: Don’t you have any Republican friends?”

Grayson laughed, and said that some of his best friends are Republicans.
