No, the Other Cheney Daughter
Very nice profile of Liz Cheney -- no, not that Cheney daughter; the older one -- in the New York Times. Not a single snarky comment, and they take her conservatism (or as some would have it, her neoconservatism) completely seriously:
Like her father, Ms. Cheney speaks in understated, almost academic cadences, head veering down into her notes. She also shares his willingness to pummel President Obama in stark, disdainful tones, not so much criticizing as taunting him.
“Mr. President, in a ticking time-bomb scenario, with American lives at stake,” she said, “are you really unwilling to subject a terrorist to enhanced interrogation to get information that would prevent an attack?”
By speech’s end, the crowd was standing, and the former vice president’s daughter was being mobbed for photos and hounded to run for office.
Liz Cheney is “a red state rock star,” declared Rebecca Wales, one of the organizers of this event, the “Smart Girls Summit.”
Maybe the Times, it is a changin'? (Nah; but occasionally, just for a change.)

The following hissed in response by: Mastermind2much
I think the money paragraph is paragraph 8. She's described as vocalizing the conservative position in paragraph 8 and in paragraph 7 the Republican party needs to pick a position. Can anyone tell me why the world needs liberal republicans?
