    Quite a number of Cheney/Thanksgiving cartoons this week. Somebody needs to explain to me why I should care about the Cheney’s Thanksgiving dinner.

    I’m surprised the solid gold bowl from Halliburton isn’t overflowing with $100 bills, part of Darth Cheney’s illegal War Profits!

    @Debt Free

    You REALLY want to compare a glitchy website to a blatantly illegal “War”, started based on outright lies, that cost thousands of American Servicepeople their lives, not to mention hundreds of thousands of civilians?
    You are pathetic, really pathetic.

    “There are a lot more relevent thing to worry about than this!”
    You are absolutely right! I have been saying this for years, months here on GC. You are entirely correct, there are many more legitimate issues to take up. But could you please answer this question that I have been asking for months, why don’t republicans care about those legitimate issues? Why do they continue to obstruct and manufacture crises and then only give us half the story? Why do they feel the need to feign outrage over made-up stuff or stuff blown way out of proportion, especially when compared to historic reactions when there are so many legitimate things to get upset over. Is it tht it would require them to WORK on a solution? And that solution, that doing the people’s business isn’t harmful and deleterious to their political opponents? Is it that WORKING to fix what is wrong with this country would serve the common people so the republicans’ owners can’t be bothered? Why are the relevant things only important to you when you are criticizing a “liberal” cartoonist?

    Now watch, my questions are uncomfortable for the right-wingers so they won’t address my questions, they will either redirect the discussion or simply attack me.

    Did you really expect anything different from the hater-boy troll? But thanks for calling him/her/it out on their lies.

    “Somebody needs to explain to me why I should care about the Cheney’s Thanksgiving dinner.”

    If you boil things down to their essence, almost nothing should make you really care about stuff. I mean, food and shelter and preserving body temp are really the only things that matter.

    If you are asking why the subject keeps coming up, it’s a reaction to the fact that Liz Cheney moved from Virginia to Wyoming to run for Senate from there. As part of being a good Republican, she has emphasized her opposition to gay marriage, but her sister is married to a lesbian, and they have two children. Under the circumstances, family gatherings are likely to be tense. Eugene Robinson’s column about this subject is well-written and insightful.

    @I Play One On TV

    I understand what you’re saying, Play One, about the Cheney family’s possible internal differences. It’s just that I care no more about the Cheney family than I care about the Kardashians or Honey Boo Boo and don’t understand why multiple editorial cartoonists seem bent on convincing me that I should care.

    It’s the fact that the Cheney family is NOT just an internal discussion, but something that affects the politics of this nation. I can safely ignore Honey Boo Boo or the entire Kardashian clan (as indeed I do); I can’t ignore a potential senator. The political implications: (1) Cheney’s daughter feels entitled to a Senate seat because of her name and regardless of actual proven ability, which to me is cause for concern (especially after two Bushes and indeed the possibility of another Clinton) (2) Dick Cheney himself over time moved away from the anti-homosexual contingent because of his other daughter, but (3) his political heir Liz is deliberately making a point of this — is this simply cynical manipulation of the base? Or is this her genuine belief? In either case, it suggests something about her character, which applies to whether she deserves a Senate seat or could act properly in it if she got it.
    But it’s funnier to talk about Thanksgiving dinner. They’re cartoonists, not pundits!

    ASSuming you know what you’re feigning rage over, what are you talking about? Me expecting republicans to concentrate on real issue? ME expecting republicans to work? To do their jobs adn SERVE the people? Or are you insinuating that calling a troll a troll is being a troll? Please do be specific. I realize that would expect you to think and work instead of mindlessly parroting the partisan spew and insulting those you don’t agree with, but c’mon you can do it. I have confidence in you. Or are you just another pay-per-troll?

    You didn’t ask. I thought (and still think) it was pure political shenanigans for her to do so. Keep in mind that one of the Kennedys (I can’t keep them straight) did the same thing earlier than she did. She wore a Yankees cap, and won the election. I fault New York voters far more; she blows with the political winds…it’s a different game. But voters should have some sense of responsibility.

    In my home state, Mr. McAuliffe ran for (and won) the governorship. He was not really a Virginian, either. At least he had not served an elected office here, and that worked mightily against him. However, his opponent was so miserable that voters held their noses and voted for the lesser of the evils.

    No such situation exists in Wyoming. Their current Senator is as conservative as the rest of the state, and had full backing of the Cheney family until Liz decided to get a lucrative job based on name recognition, and the knowledge that the money would continue to flow without having to do anything to earn it (which is why most politicians run for office).

    Please do not assume to know what I think. Next time, feel free to ask me.
