Its Dick

In Bush/Cheney Administration, human rights, neoconservatives, stupidity, war on terror on May 13, 2009 by Editor Z

I have always perceived Dick Cheney as a mix of Julius Cesar, Darth Vader, and Elmer Fudd. Well his daughter appears to be just as animated. Liz Cheney in an interview, confronted Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post Columnist Eugene Robinson who wrote that Cheney was “a crazy coot” who should go back to Wyoming and into the annals of obscurity.

Here is her reaction H/T: Huffington Post:

“I haven’t seen similar columns from you or, frankly, anybody else saying things like Al Gore should go back to Tennessee and Al Gore somebody who is very vocal, very much out there,” she said.

Meanwhile, Josh Marshall of TPM, carries the analogy further pondering whether this means Dick Cheney will shoot a pro-torture movie (ala “An Inconvenient Truth”). Who knows in Cheney’s own diluted mind that might be the thing to do, and who knows maybe he could also get a Nobel Peace Prize for his tireless advocacy of human rights violations. God, Cheney is enough to make J Edgar Hoover blanch in horror and most know that takes some doing.

Also in defending the gruesome procedures that daddy approved and advocated, Ms Cheney did what her father’s administration did so often, used those who have served in the military with valor and bravery to promote her father’s own pro-torture agenda and attacking their political opponents.

“I have heard from families of service members from families of 9/11 victims this question about when did it become so fashionable for us to side, really, with the terrorists,” she continued. “You know, President Obama has a lot of rhetoric about support for American military families, support for our men and women who are fighting for us overseas. But if he really cares about them, then he wouldn’t be making such an effort to release photos that show them in a negative light.”

Last night Jesse Ventura probably had the best rebutal to the Cheney pro-torture agenda. Classic!
