"Je ne regrette rien"

From today's online edition of the New York Times:
Cheney Owns Up to Profanity Incident and Says He 'Felt Better Afterwards'

SIOUX CITY, Iowa, June 25 - Vice President Dick Cheney, long portrayed by his aides as unperturbed by partisan attacks, admitted Friday that he "probably" cursed at a senior Democratic senator this week, said he did not regret it and added that he "felt better afterwards."
The "probably" is a bit weak, but other than that, I like it. None of that ooze about "I'm sorry if I said anything to offend anyone." He said what he meant and he meant what he said. Good for him.
