My Aunt Bella had two expressions, that would stop anyone in their tracks in an argument. She would have been an excellent participant in a debate.
First, no matter what anyone said to her, her response would be to repeat some key word and then rhyme it with a word beginning with the pre-fix “schm-”. For example, if you said to her “Inflation is bad for the country”, her answer might be “Country, Schmuntry”. Then she would be quiet. She would go back to knitting, her point well made.
And if she made an assertion, and then someone answered “So?”. Her answer would be, “So, sew, sew your pants”.
So, to Vice President Cheney, I say “So, sew, sew your pants”.
