It Ain't so Easy

"My father 'has an obligation to speak out,' Liz Cheney told the hosts of MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' on Tuesday. She compared his outspoken defense of harsh interrogation techniques to Al Gore's public role since leaving office. He would much rather be fishing, she said, but he felt it was his duty to defend the Bush Administration."

Sorry dear, but it's not OK just cause Daddy says so. Daddy didn't have the authority to authorize torture for interrogation and never did. Per the Constitution, no one did--but Daddy's fishing buddies never played by the rules, regarded such rules as for us wimpy citizens only and considered themselves above the Law.

I'm sorry to break it to you this way, but that's why we have the Constitution, that's why we have these rules. We can't live in a society where it's all OK 'cause Daddy said so. For if we did, I assure you, the results would be very, very bad.
