"He messed up the country; he shot his friend. Why are we still listening to Dick Cheney?"

Laura also did her best to get to the important point: with all this reading from the right-wing play book, the media’s missing what we need to be discussing, namely the problems with the Obama plan. 

"The President can’t simultaneously lift up America’s "timeless ideals" and timeless detention both." 

And she ends with a sobering point about Cheney’s claim to have kept Americans safe: "Tell that to the thousands of families around the world grieving this Memorial Day."

Nice try. That Heidi lady’s so whacked out she makes Ann Coulter look less mad. (Not quite.)
