Cheney: the next generationYou think the next set of Republicans in the White House won't resume criminal torture? Just check this out: Liz Cheney: I’m Proud My Daddy Is the Prime Mover of Torture by Marcy Wheeler 04/23/09
There's a big difference between this torture program and lynch-law in the segregated South. In the segregated South, the governors of the states didn't publicly declare that lynching was a wonderful program and that "people are very proud of what we've accomplished" with lynchings.
This is what we're looking at, folks. The second-ranking member of the Cheney dynasty, who could well have ambitions as great as her father's, is saying bluntly on national television that she's proud of torture. Proud of torture.
