I Almost Bought It

Lynne Cheney was on The Daily Show the other night and I was really starting to think that she was a charming lady and perhaps she and her husband are regular people who are not absolute neocon ideologues who will do anything to advance their cause. I felt that way right up until the very end of this interview. Please watch the til the end and then watch her speedy exit.

She obviously could not wait to get the fuck out of there. I don't know why. Jon went very easy on her. He could have really laid into her if he wanted to. He did not treat her as a spokesperson for her husband as much as he could have even though the content of her new book obviously is intended to humanize her husband. She should have been very grateful that he didn't call her on her bullshit when she started spewing GOP talkng points near the end of the interview.

I agree... I thought he was pretty easy on her. I was a little surprised.

I'm so glad you posted this vid. I missed this show, but saw the clip of her storming off the stage the next night.

Rumor has it her husband and Obama are long lost cousins. Loved the Obama camp's response: "Every family has a black sheep."
