Cheney: the next generation

You 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.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
