Why have they dragged that witch, Lynn Cheney, out from beneath her rock?
What possible reason is there for dragging this monumentally unlikeable woman out from under her usual rock and put her on teevee right now?

I am at a loss to see any upside to her venom spew being placed in the public arena right now. To my mind, she's the very embodiment of what's wrong with the Republic Party, not a reason to support it.

Can it be that, in fact and in deed, the Republic Party has lost their mojo?

1. For the same reason they sobered up Laura this past week. To get
out there and let the little woman drum up the soccer mom vote and defend their men against the bad old democrats.

2. She just wrote another book
And is dragging it all over TV.

A children's book this time.

4. Yes. Lesbians, and rape
But LIBERALS ARE EVIL! AREN'T YOU LISTENING! WEBB'S BOOK MENTIONS AN INDIAN CULTURAL RITUAL! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!

:crazy:

Maybe, compared to VP Oswald Cobblepot and King George the Crazy, Lynn and Laura seem positively cuddly.

11. In general I'm anti-censorship...
but isn't there a case for protecting poor innocent little kids from the influence of the Cheneys?

What is the book about? Does it contain great big pictures of her darling husband, for the little dears to colour?

10. My avatar resents your remark.
She is, of course, out there because she's all they have left.

8. Even she has a higher approval rating than her husband does. His is hovering
between pond scum and ebola.

9. As a stark warning to Americans of who your First Lady will be if you impeach and convict Bush.
And yes, they've lost their mojo.

The public can only take so many sexual acccusations before losing interest.

13. Two possibilities I see
1) They are desperate and are pulling her AND Laura out as well (She has been around making comments too)

2) Something is up and they're going to use Lynne as a distraction. Remember her stupid comments in 2004 about Mary Cheney that Kerry made which weren't nothing at all? She was the distraction.

Only two things I can think of.

15. rove's plan is to make the whole thing so distasteful, everyone stays home.
zero voter turnout. then they can diebold the election without fear of scrutiny.

17. She was so disgusting that it had to have turned even some
of the Republicans off - The turnout will be what it is and I don't know how even they could pull off the Diebold theory (only in this contex). However, I think it may backfire and get even more Dems out...and I've become about as cynical as I ever thought imaginable (regarding the current state of what's going on politically). She was absolutely frighting.

18. Husb2DonnaZen wants to know
Does Lynne Cheney have a license to wear those curtains?

Anyway, I hear she's yearning for a new Hanzo sword. She'll never get one...karma will see to that.
