The New GOP American Idol

According to Paul Bedard at U.S. News & World Report, the “hottest Republican property” right now is Liz Cheney:

Liz Cheney, who followed the former veep’s hard-hitting speech criticizing President Obama’s policies with a CNN appearance, is becoming so popular in conservative circles that some want her to run for office. “She’s awesome. Everyone wants her to run,” said a close friend.

She certainly has all of the contemporary Republican Party credentials, notes Steve Benen: She “practically lives on cable news. She also lies routinely, accuses the president of helping terrorists, and is so mindless in her attacks on the nation’s elected leadership, she’s something of a national embarrassment.”

In other words, “she’s perfect.”

    So the lefty blogs don't like Liz Cheney, well there's a surprise. While I don't agree with everything she says she is a much better spokesperson for the right than most of the voices we've heard the past few months.

    I understand the talking heads heaping scorn on anyone who disagrees with their version of the world, but what's up with MV? It's no longer enough to disagree or attack points of view or arguments, but it seems you must attack the person themselves. Personaly it just makes me sad and I think it says as much about the attacker as anything else.

    This is just another example of mindless bile spewed by left-wing dullards.

    The politics of personal destruction is alive and well when those on the left can’t argue the facts. Of course, the useful idiot chorus will feel obliged to chime in.

    A lot of people want to know who will win American Idol. Who will win American Idol is a hot topic every year, as American Idol winners and runners up become enormous stars. Names such as Clay Aiken, Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Taylor Hicks, Jennifer Hudson, these are entertainment heavyweights. They've won Grammys, CMA awards, even Oscars – most of them won't need an instant cash loan again. This year's competition has been as contentious as any other, and it promises to be quite the finale, and many would give short term loans to find out who will win American Idol.
