"Bush uses EXPLETIVE to describe Times reporter.

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (CNN) -- During what his campaign called a "whispered aside," Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush used an EXPLETIVE to describe a New York Times reporter, the author of several articles Bush has felt were unfair. Standing on a stage here just prior to making an address, Bush told his vice presidential running mate, Dick Cheney, "There's Adam Clymer, major league a------ from The New York Times."
