Liz Cheney: The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree


Liz Cheney, daughter of Darth Vader, I mean, Dick Cheney, is being taken to task by members of her own party who see her group Keep America Safe (cough cough) as under handed, over-the-top, McCarthy like, etc.

Now that you've all had a chance to enjoy this bit of unvarnished, unbiased info from the aforesaid group, here's what the media reports.

from The Huffington Post :
The backlash is growing against Liz Cheney after she demonized Department of Justice attorneys as terrorist sympathizers for their past legal work defending Gitmo detainees -- and now it's coming from within deeply conservative legal circles.

from Daily Latest News :
Cheney’s efforts were called “vicious” and “unfounded”, by Author Paul Mirengoff, when she branded DOJ officials the “Al Qaeda 7″, in order to to criticize defense lawyers for doing work on behalf of Gitmo detainees. Mirengoff offered a sharp bawl out when reached on the phone, opposite to what Cheney has done to anti-communist crusades, which have been launched by Sen. Joseph McCarthy, it can still be worse than few assumptions made by Mc Carthy as per the assumptions validated by him as quoted by Mirengoff.

Cannot wait to hear what Stewart & Colbert have to say.

There seems to be such an audience for these women who say outrageous things -- Cheney, Bachman, Coulter (though my husband swears this one's in drag), and Palin. I'm baffled. But it's been a pleasure to see Miss Liz get smacked down a bit by her own.

Love the cereal box!

Hi Vicki! Thanks for commenting. Your husband may be right. hahahahaha! Coulter is a tough guy, that's for sure. It's all for show although I've no doubt Miz Liz iz serious. She is quite mean spirited, much like her father and mother who also needs a smackdown.

Maybe it's a good thing some people are listening to people like this, although once you see/hear them start, then the volume goes off 4 me.

With so much going south here in the usa, and with these people still rattling on, it shows that all they want to do is divide, despite their "christian" calling they keep speaking about.

Guess it needs to be this bad, before some realize the right only has their own interests at heart, and no one elses.

and so it goes ; (

ha, ha, verification: worne

It's so gratifying to watch Repugs eating one of their own kind! Maybe she should have run this one by a few advisors beforehand, but I'm glad she didn't. She's even more of a whackjob than dear old dad. Can you imagine the fun that will be had by the Democratic ad people come election time? I'm salivating already!

Liz Cheney has no business commenting on anything! Who the hell is she, anyway, other than the Devil's daughter?

I come here to get some of the details on the big picture that Time (Europe) and other international press paint. Republican politics is about the dirtiest I've ever seen - funny how the right stoops to things like this. Even in Canada.

Coffee: channeling Linda Ellerbee are we? Yes, I think it does need to get to the point of the absurd before people wake up and smell the...well, you know.

Susan: "whackjob" works for me. I don't know if she's worse than her father but she's certainly cut from the same cloth...Darth Vader's cape!

Ima: refer previous comment above :)

Deb: They can be. Of course, they think the Dems are dirty but I really don't think we're as mean spirited and selfish as are they.
