So CPAC is swinging into it second day, all full of new energy after an infusion of crap (sorry) from their old friend – and ours – Richard Cheney, former vice-president of the these United States. He was introduced to the squeals and cries and thunderous applause of his surprised audience by his really vile daughter, Liz Cheney.
I’m tired of seeing her on Sunday morning shows. She is rude.
And so the CPAC crowd basked in the Cheney sunshine, as he thundered on his usual themes. Democrats will kill you. Terrorists will kill you. Taxes will kill you. Health care will kill you. They love that stuff.
But off in Afghanistan, there are thousands of troops who know exactly what will kill you. Bullets and bombs, my friends, bullets and bombs. They’re still ducking those on the 133rd day of the ninth year of the war there.
