Liz Cheney is, sadly, no “farce”

Liz Cheney–spawn of Dick–shared her views on Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize on, of course, FOX News.

She labeled Obama’s award as a “farce,” not because he is a wartime president but because the Nobel Committee wants us all “to live in the world where the US is not dominant.” She said Obama should refuse to attend the award ceremony and instead send the mother of a soldier who died in combat, to stress the importance of war.

After all, each member of the Nobel Committee “sleeps soundly at night because the U.S. military is the greatest peacekeeping force in the world today.”

You can read and watch more of her rantings and warmonggering spew here.

It would be easy for me to dismiss Cheney as “evil” since, well, I’m pretty sure she is. But she is nothing magical, nothing all that unique. She is morally bankrupt, serious and dedicated to fomenting a form of political fascism steeped in nationalistic fervor. She advocates for a world of desperation, of the starvation of rights and humanity, all in the name of pride and profit and a narrow vision of who is deserving.

She is a visceral reminder of the national and global context in which Obama won this distinction.

  1. Liz Cheney causes a painful shiver to run up a liberals leg, it is a bit like siatica. I love it!

    She, like Palin, terrifies the left and rightfully so. Be afraid, be very afraid.

    As far as the Obama peace prize and the Olympic rejections go the prize reveals that some folks still think he is omnipotent but the Olympic decision reveals that he is not. Obama, Obama Hubris Uber Alles, hmmm hmmm hmmm.

  2. A low-class sour grapes reaction from the daughter of a VP whose policies were repudiated by Nobel Prize Committee. And, Charles, if you’d like the definition of “hubris” look no farther than Bush and Cheney’s jingoistic, unilateral foreign policy. Oh, and please, please, please encourage Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012. She’s the progressive movement’s most effective recruiter.

  3. Pretty good expose, but on what? FOX news? Nah…I doubt that; btw, why do you feel people claim to be down on FOX news? Is this society so brainwashed by the self-admitted ‘left-winged’ main stream media that when some organization comes along and presents an issue they ensure that all involved are scheduled for equal time? That is the definiton of moral decay.

    There are plenty of folks who personify evil; however, its pretty irresponsible to state “…well…I’m pretty sure she is…” with any integrity or dignity.

    Although I knew this notion from my own life’s experiences, albeit, I have read many journalists state that Obama should have politely ‘declined’ the award. In lieu of the other finalists and that alone he should have declined and simply told folks, “There are far more worthy than I” and we’d all be writing about how much integrity this guy has rather than how arrogant, selfish, criminal, and lying he reall is. Just a thought…
