So Dick has slipped back into his undisclosed bunker and only nips out now and then to appear on a talk show or two and try to do what he can to salvage his tarnished legacy. That, you would think, would be the end of that.
After all, here's the most unpopular VP in our history, the man behind the Iraq War, Mr. Wiretap, Senor Secrecy, Shotgun McShooty...truly the definition of the wart on America's behind. You'd think slinking off would be the least he could do.
But no. See, he's got a daughter who is fixated on trying to keep the Cheney brand alive and well. And let me tell you: this chick is as moonbat-crazy as her Dad. Take it away, Liz!
Months after her father's prolonged campaign against President Obama's national
security policies, Liz Cheney is spearheading a new organization aimed at
organizing conservative opposition to the new administration's foreign policy
Really? We should go back to the good ol' days, maybe, of diplomatic arrogance, cowboy foreign policy and an attitude towards our allies around the world that amounted to standing in front of the U.N. and flipping them the bird? That's the plan, is it?
The new group, Keep America Safe, says its aim is to provide a cogent and
organized rebuttal to a series of recent moves that expressly divert from the
more muscular policies of the Bush administration. The group plans to tackle
hot-button issues like the way forward in Iraq and Afghanistan, defense
spending, CIA interrogation techniques and the planned closing of the Guantanamo
Bay detention facility.
Mmmm. Don't you love that line? "Muscular policies." Sounds great, dunnit? After all, who doesn't like a nice, manly, muscular policy? Am I getting you excited?
"We have watched with concern and dismay as the Obama administration has cut
defense spending, wavered on the war in Afghanistan, and launched investigations
into Americans serving on the front lines of the war on terror, while at the
same time expanding legal protections for the terrorists that plot to attack
this country," Cheney, along with the group's two other founders, wrote on its
Web site. "These policies, along with President Obama's abandonment of America's
allies and attempts to appease our adversaries are weakening the nation."
And, speaking for those of us on the left, Liz-baby, we have watched with concern as your father subverted the Constitution, abandoned American principles, promoted torture and was responsible for the unnecessary deaths of thousands of Americans in a pointless war of choice against a sovereign nation, among many, many other things.
In short, Liz, to quote your Dad: Go fuck yourself.
