Liz Cheney channels "Seinfeld"

Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney Oh look, you're still here

"Seinfeld's" George Costanza was ahead of his time. His quote, "Everybody's doing something. We'll do nothing!" is resonating with-- wait for it-- Liz Cheney. Here's George the Prescient in his own very words:

Liz Cheney is no George Costanza. She is no visionary, and she certainly has no developed sense of humor reality, as her idiotic, shortsighted, terse little comment illustrates.

Via HuffPo's Amanda Terkel:

 

Liz Cheney did not hesitate when asked Monday what the Republican Party should do to address climate change.

"Nothing," she immediately replied.

And that concludes another in-depth interview with Dickette Cheney, a woman with the acumen of a gnat, the prophetic powers of GOP pollsters/Dick Morris, the logic of Sarah Palin, and the compassion of Daddy Dick.

Rachel Maddow reaffirms what a Dick... Cheney is.

Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney Oh look, you're still here

Rachel Maddow pulled no punches in her reporting on the Cheney family. She reaffirmed what a Dick... Cheney is, and for that, we are very grateful. And she enumerated Liz Cheney's failures, one by embarrassing one.

She skewered the Cheney obsession with war, and she ticked their war efforts off the way June Cleaver would tick off ingredients on a recipe for sugar cookies. Specifically, Rachel delved into their new little web page (on which they spelled their own last name wrong) and the wars for which the Dick and Dickette deeply yearn, including: war with Iran, war with Syria, war with North Korea, more war with Iraq, more war with Afghanistan, "even at one point a faint gesture toward potentially a war with China (!!!)."

And best of all, she herself appeared pretty ticked off as she ticked off the lies Daddy Dick told to America.

Take it away, Rachel:

Rachel Maddow:

"Oh, you're still here.

"A significant portion of the country is convulsing at the sight of these people.

"For Dick Cheney and his daughter, it's almost at a different level. It's almost at a level that approaches parody. The Cheney's op-ed in the Wall St. Journal today is about war in Iraq, and it accuses the Obama administration of 'misleading rhetoric' about Iraq! Really!?

"Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney... are telling the Republican party to not be embarrassed about what happened under George W. Bush, embrace it, run with it, demand that everyone listen to you again on this subject.

"Is this part of a larger project to vindicate the Cheney legacy, especially on war, to try to put a shine on Dick Cheney's very unpopular tenure as vice president? Most importantly though, who listens to this stuff?

"From the outside, it's ridiculous, right? Seeing Dick Cheney in a cowboy hat and Liz at their misspelled website telling us that they know what to do in Iraq. It's like watching a particularly humorless, ham-handed lefty satire in a student theater production at Hemp State in 2004.

"Nobody would accuse the Cheney family of something this on the nose, this brazenly obnoxious, unless they did it themselves, but they did it themselves! There they are, and from outside it's crazy! It's laugh out loud territory. ... But does it work inside the conservative movement? Do they have an audience?"

PhotOH! The faces of GOP scandals that won't go away

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

scandal scandalous

Republicans are positively out of control these days, aren't they? Why, it's almost as if GOP scandals are everywhere! That's because they are everywhere; if it's not one corrupt politician, it's another.

Here's a visual guide to some of the most recent culprits. Think of it as a pictorial road map that's so easy to follow, even a right wing nut job could understand it. And if I omitted any other obvious GOP Moments o' Disgrace that broke over the past couple of years or are currently rearing their ugly heads, please let me know. I'm still not myself yet, so the ol' brain is barely functioning:

Thanksgiving 2013: A political comic's list of thank-yous

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Today’s guest post by the one, the only, Will Durst:

THANKSGIVING 2013

Ahh. Thanksgiving. Best Holiday Ever! Love it all. The fact that a national holiday falls not on a Monday but a Thursday. How wacky is that? A regular Thursday in dead solid center fall. Where the weather could be 80 and sunny or 20 and snowing. Or, in certain parts of the Midwest, both.

Love the fact that its all about food, family, friends and football. 4 of the 5 Fs. Remain seriously amused by the winking obsessive conspiracy that binds an entire nation together concerning the specifics of the ritual burning of a large flightless bird. Free range. Brine. Air chill. To stuff or not to stuff. Seriously, is that the question?

You’d have to be a third stage tertiary Grinch not to love a parade featuring 80-foot helium filled balloons. Snoopy bouncing off a light pole. Ending with the season’s first appearance of the corpulent bearded one in the scarlet suit.

Don’t forget the silly creeping madness of Black Friday, which now begins early Thursday and threatens to encompass the entire week. People camping out for days. To save, what… six bucks? But for those tented hours, they are adventurous pioneers. Marvel Super Consumers.

And love the way that though this pageant of greed and gluttony lasts 4 whole days, when all is said and done, even amidst the drunken family brawling, sometimes moments for reflection can still be found. And you can bet that this round- headed political comic has much to be thankful for. Among them being:

--The 113th Congress, which has the unique ability to make hysterical lunacy seem so ordinary.
--Barack Obama for finally making the Presidency mock-worthy again.
--Sarah Palin who refuses to shut up no matter how tightly irrelevancy embraces her.
--Vice President Joe Biden for gaining immeasurable respect just by shutting up.
--The Cheney family who apparently feel about each other the same way the rest of us do.
--Ted Cruz for not only grabbing the national right- wing nut job baton from Michele Bachmann but waving it high.
--Pope Benedict for his inability to hide a scowl whenever Pope Francis does… anything.
--Chris Christie for so generously providing such a large target rich environment.
--The Tea Party for waving their arms in the air like they just don’t care.
--Alec Baldwin for truly embodying the phrase… “he who lives by the sword, dies swallowing the sword.”
--Mitt Romney for disappearing so completely, we’re left to wonder if he really ever existed at all.
--John Boehner, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell for their strict adherence to the musical advice, “don’t go changing.”
--ObamaCare because who can’t appreciate a website rollout that “could have gone smoother.” An anvil studded with titanium spikes could have rolled smoother.
--Walter White for altering the calculus of what it means to go out on your own terms.
--The NRA and the NSA for just being themselves.
--Anthony Weiner for his series of continuing comebacks. May he experience many more.
--Rob Ford for proving that California is not the source of all political wackiness in the world.
--The GOP, waging an internal war for it’s very soul. GOP Soul. Short book. Put it on the shelf right next to Barack Obama Leadership Skills. Paula Deen at the Apollo.
--Vladimir Putin for proving that Toronto is not the source of all political wackiness in the world.

Will Durst’s new one- man show “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG” in its final 3 Tuesdays at the Marsh. San Francisco. Through December 17th. themarsh.org Or willdurst.com to find his calendar.

That anyone would find Cheney "appealing" at all is beyond me. Via.
