This is Why I Love the Cheneys...


Hat tip: Redstate and Conservative Warrior

This is why I love the Cheneys... Liz Cheney is giving Norah O'Donnell an education in the truth on the "torture" issue.

I loved what Moe Lane had to say over at Red State so much that I'm just going to quote him:
This is how you do it, by the way. You don’t let them define the agenda; you certainly don’t let them define the terms; you concede nothing (you can always agree, but you do not concede); you keep going back to a disputed point over and over again until they get tired of trying to sneak one past you; you never lose your cool; when you catch them trying a stupid tactic like read a headline and pretend that it’s established truth, you call them on it without a hint of self-consciousness; and in this case, you don’t accept the other side’s presumptuous bluff that they speak for the American people. Because they don’t.

And you don’t give a tinker’s dam if they like you afterward. To quote Truman: if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.
