Over the weekend, the most important former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in our nation’s history, maybe ever and ousted 3rd-ranking GOP member of the House, Rep. Liz Cheney (R Blam-Blam), did two things: 1) trolled Hair Füror by tweeting that she liked presidents who win re-election (complete with a picture of Chimpy McStagger) and B) on CBS’ 60 Minutes said, “I was wrong. I was wrong. I love my sister very much, I love her family very much, and I was wrong. … I believe that my dad was right.” A Cheney saying she was wrong about, well, anything, is news.
OK, that’s a start, Liz, but what about the things you actually voted AGAINST, you know, just in the past few months:
- John Lewis voting rights act
- LGBTQ business equal credit
- Access to contraceptives for veterans
- Protecting older workers against discrimination
Oh, in case you were wondering, Mary accepts Liz’ apology:
“I love my sister very much and am so proud of her. It took a ton of courage to admit that she was wrong back in 2013 when she opposed marriage equality. That is something few politicians would ever do. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the strength of character she continues to show on a daily basis.”
Both of ’em are totally Cheneys. Nothing gets in the way of any Cheney family member political ambitions.
