The Cheney Cocoon
Andrew Sullivan


Liz Cheney has become an almost comic echo of her war criminal father.

We are nine months into Obama's first term. He inherited two disastrous and failed wars, a recession steeper than any since the Great Depression, countless prisoners of war imprisoned in a gulag in Cuba and largely unprosecutable because of torture illegally authorized by the former president, $5 trillion of debt accrued in eight years by Dick "deficits don't matter" Cheney, alliances frayed to near-collapse, and a total failure in eight years to do anything about climate change.

And she actually says that a Republican in 2013 will have to cope with the damage Obama has done to the country! And she talks about America's "standing in the world"!

Yes, this is the world she inhabits, a world of shamelessness, cynicism and contempt for this country's stability and health. She is her father's daughter.

3. Good word. Pathetically self-unaware is an understatement.

6. Katrina Vanden Heuvel just suggested we might see a
fight between Liz Cheney/Sarah Palin in 2012. :scared: I'm appalled that Cheney would have the nerve after the destruction her father has wrought, but she's imbibed the kook aide.

5. Another republican regime like the last one would shatter this country.
They better be very, very careful what they wish for.

7. The Cheneys lives are built on a cess pool of lies and corruption
