2 In 3 Republican Insiders Say Dick Cheney Hurts The Party

by BarbinMD

According to a National Journal "insiders" poll, most Republicans want Dick Cheney to shut up (h/t Americablog):

Q: Has Dick Cheney helped or hurt the Republican Party since leaving office?

Republicans (100 votes)

Helped: 33 percent

Hurt: 57 percent


Of course these insiders don't have the guts to publicly say this, so the title could be, 2 out of 3 Republican insiders are cowards.


(Edited to add)

A VERY SMALL FAN CLUB....:

<...>

It's one of those rare times in which the Democratic National Committee and Bill Kristol want the exact same thing: for Dick Cheney to take the lead and for Republicans to hold on tight to Bush-era policies.

Kristol concluded his love letter to the former vice president by gushing, "Dick Cheney probably won't be the glamour quarterback of the Republican comeback. But he's proving to be a heck of a middle linebacker."

Sticking with the metaphor, Kristol seems unaware of the fact that his MVP was supposed to have retired quite a while ago; he led the league in costly penalties for eight years straight; football fans are sick of him; but he feels the need to keep playing because he's on a team with a strikingly weak bench.

Coach Kristol can keep cheering him on, but that doesn't mean he can make a play. Indeed, the other team seems awfully happy to see him on the field.

1. I don't think one in 100 republican insiders would agree to put their names to that
They're still scared shitless of the dick. As are our national news media and everybody else except the citizens,

2. Interesting,
This makes it sound like The Cheney is pulling Rushnoccio's strings. Wonder how Limbaugh feels about that?
