Dick Cheney And Liz Cheney Blame President Obama For Civil War In Iraq

From an op-ed published by the Wall Street Journal: Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.

Maggie: The Cheney Feud Is Staged

“The Cheney family is a very close family, and I don’t believe they would have this spat in public, except for the fact that it’s good for both of the sisters.

Campaign Ad From Liz Cheney: I’m Totally Seriously Actually From Wyoming

Wonkette snarks: Liz Cheney has really been in Wyoming since territorial times, because of how she is an immortal bloodsucking monster like Kathy Bates in Coven or William Hurt in Tuck Everlasting.

Bryan Fischer On The Cheney Feud

“The one doing the sniping here is not the heterosexual, happily-married, Christian sister. The one who is lobbing the grenades here is her perpetually aggrieved, sexually-confused, gay-activist sibling. I’m not sure what you call it when one sister is trying to pick a very public fight with the other, and the second sister won’t fight back, but instead turns the ...

Frank Bruni On Liz Cheney

“If Liz Cheney, whose bid for the Senate has always had a stench of extreme opportunism, wants to discuss traditions and values, I’m all for it. Let’s start here: Isn’t there a tradition of close-knit family members’ taking care not to wound one another? Is there not value in that? [snip] But she plunged forward anyway, disregarding the inevitable discord. ...

Quote Of The Day – Liz Cheney

“I don’t believe we ought to discriminate against people because of their sexual orientation. If people are in a same-sex relationship and they want their partner to be able to have health benefits or be designated as a beneficiary on their life insurance, there’s no reason we shouldn’t do that. I also doesn’t support amending the constitution on this issue. ...

Brian Brown Vs Liz Cheney

“Liz Cheney now says she is not ‘pro gay marriage’, but she has long opposed a constitutional amendment to protect marriage as the union of one man and woman. If she truly supported protecting marriage, she would change her position and support both a Wyoming constitutional amendment and federal amendment to protect marriage. Luckily, there is a candidate in this ...
