Ken Starr vs. Liz Cheney

Dave may be correct that the conservative rebuke to Keep America Safe has possibly peaked — conservatives, after all, don’t have an interest in keeping their internal disputes public — but no less a Democratic persecutor than Ken Starr went on ‘Countdown’ last night to admonish the Cheneys for slandering Justice Department lawyers who defended Guantanamo detainees. “It’s very important for lawyers to be willing to take on unpopular causes,” Starr said. “This is in the finest traditions of our country. I hope schoolchildren still learn about the example of John Adams, because we certainly teach it in law school — John Adams taking on [as clients] the British Redcoats who were charged with the Boston Massacre.”

Using Liz Cheney's logic, an American Doctor who volunteers to volunteerilly work in an earthquake aftermath in Iran, is an Iranian terrorist?

Bill Krostol and Liz Cheney's arguments are flawed and irrational. I recommend a dose of psychiatric counseling for both Cheney and Kristol.

We need to “Keep America Safe” from Liz Cheney and Bill Kristol.

Good for Starr, Graham, and all the others. This type of xenophobia the Cheneys and Kristol espouse truly is dangerous for American interests. And law.

Maybe now they'll shut the f**k up and fade away. Like it should have been, more than a year ago.
