Congressional condemnation of Cheney/Kristol?

Salon
by Glenn Greenwald

03/08/10

“One of the most inane acts undertaken by the Democratic Congress was its formal and highly bipartisan condemnation of MoveOn.org’s ‘Petraeus/Betrayus’ ad. Regardless of one’s views of that ad, formally opining on the views of private citizens is not the role of Congress. But since they did that, and apparently believe that repugnant political campaigns merit Congressional disapproval, shouldn’t there be some form of formal sanction for the far more pernicious and genuinely McCarthyite attacks on DOJ lawyers from Liz Cheney and Bill Kristol’s ‘Keep America Safe?’ So reprehensible was that campaign that numerous right-wing lawyers have vehemenetly condemned it — including Ken Starr, David Rivkin, Ted Olsen, and even (ironically) former Bush official Cully Stimson — with most of them signing a letter decrying it as ‘a shameful series of attacks’ that are ‘destructive of any attempt to build lasting mechanisms for counterterrorism adjudications.’ There is a real opportunity here to cause that rarest of political events: namely, having someone’s credibility and standing be diminished by virtue of repugnant acts...

Republican witch-hunters embrace dictatorship

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger

Are there no depths to which conservatives will not sink in their ardent embrace of the war on terrorism? The latest monstrosity from the right came courtesy of Keep America Safe, a toxic organization headed by Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, who recently put out a disgraceful TV ad, ‘Who Are the Al-Qaeda Seven?’ The ad questioned the loyalty and patriotism of nine lawyers in the Justice Department who had represented prisoners at Guantanamo before joining the DoJ...

Glenn Beck: Conservatism’s snake oil salesman, part 1

Our Future Blog
by Terrance Heath

03/15/10

The circus sideshow that was CPAC folded its tent and left Washington weeks ago. However, its apparent ringmaster and chief snake oil salesman still sweats, struts, and sobs across the ’stage’ of conservative media — that medicine show never stops rolling and never stops hawking its ’solutions’ to Americans in desperate need of something to ease their economic aches and pains, and heal their political maladies. And like the medicine shows of old, Glenn Beck — and others like him — peddle magical ‘miracle cures’ that either poison directly by filling the body politic with toxic bile, or indirectly by distracting us from actual solutions, and aren’t intended to ‘cure what ails us’ so much as to make us think that we feel better even as the illness progresses...

"Values" of a Smear

Eugene Robinson: "The word 'McCarthyism' is overused, but in this case it's mild. Liz Cheney, the former vice president's ambitious daughter, has in her hand a list of nine Justice Department lawyers whose 'values' she has the gall to question. She ought to spend the time examining her own principles, if she can find them."

Why Netanyahu Canceled His DC Visit, and Why the GOP Is Applauding

By Daniel Levy

Speaking to Republican party loyalists at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Liz Cheney in a manner that was not only very predictable but also as one imagines Netanyahu would have scripted her -- attacked the president of her own country for what she called his "shabby" and "disgraceful" treatment of Israel. The party faithful applauded.

The Weird Theology of Glenn Beck and His Cohorts

The New Christian Right and Christianity

By Robert Fantina

It is an unfortunate truth that organizations ranging from the mildly amusing to the extremely dangerous have all co-opted the term 'Christian.' Christian Right, Christian Coalition, etc., all use the term without, apparently, knowing what it means. It has reached a point where even Christians cringe when they hear the word in political commentary.
