The Cheney Gang

The cooing over Liz Cheney exemplifies the sheer bankruptcy of American liberalism and of its tribute acts, of which the most notable, and the most contemptible, is in Britain.

Cheney is opposed to no-first-use nuclear policy. She is in favour of torture in general, and of waterboarding in particular. She is in favour of Israeli annexation of the West Bank. She is in favour of bombing Iran at the behest of Saudi Arabia. She still defends the Iraq War.

All in all, she could be on Keir Starmer's frontbench. After all, she is not Donald Trump, who is just so vulgar.
