On Sunday's ABC Roundtable, Liz Cheney and Sam Donaldson got into it on the torture investigations.
The only reason she's on is to defend her father once again. This is old and tired. Why does Dick only appear on FOX News to defend his position? We know the answer to that one. Chris Wallace makes with the Love Boat eyes and crawls on his tummy to try and get Dick all excited. They are like two cats in heat. Sam Donaldson wouldn't take Liz's ridiculous arguments. I mean, she actually says that there already were investigations...cough...cough...by the Bush administration and they passed with flying colors. She then continues to lie about the 2004 report and says that nobody was raped...Sure, Liz...
Liz: You do, you say it has already been looked at..
Sam: By who?
Liz: By career prosecutors...
Sam: In the Bush administration justice department.
But Sam, they were less political than Eric Holder, who is a political appointee...
When Sam brought up drilling people in the head and rape, Liz Cheney was outraged. Not at the act, but at the accusation...
Liz: That is totally, that is inexcusable..
Sam: It's in the report...
Liz: Nobody raped anybody...
George: The law said the threats were illegal, It's against the law.
Liz: Wait a second, that's not clear.
Sam: Everyone except one person that I know has commented ....says torture is waterboarding is wrong.
Liz: Waterboarding isn't torture. We can go that path...the lack of seriousness here is important...
When a conservative is losing an argument, one of their weapons is to say that you're not serious. It's a one stop shop argument fixer. Kristol uses the word "serious" a lot to make himself sound intelligent, but nobody buys it except FOX.
Oh and Liz is still trying to sell her best product of all: Waterboarding isn't torture. How many times has she denied it already?
