Even Republicans want Cheney to go back into hiding

Mark Boyer

The latest issue of In These Times is a special, extra-length issue devoted entirely to the subject of socialism in America today. This special issue is available now. Order your copy today.

After his appearance on CNN's State of the Union with John King last Sunday (which John Stewart is now referring to as "interview with a vampire"), even congressional Republicans are now suggesting that Dick Cheney "go back to his undisclosed location and leave them alone to rebuild the Republican Party without his input," according to a report from The Hill. A couple of brazen GOP lawmakers even went on the record, voicing their dissatisfaction with Cheney's recent public appearances. "He became so unpopular while he was in the White House that it would probably be better for us politically if he wouldn’t be so public," Rep. John Duncan Jr. (R-Tenn.) told The Hill. Cheney's position is pretty simple: He's already confessed to war crimes, and now he's smugly threatening that if the Obama administration doesn't continue with his line of reckless criminality we'll almost certainly be attacked. As George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told Rachel Maddow today, "Cheney is effectively building the case for his own criminal prosecution." I's nice to see Republicans quietly shuffle to the sidelines while Cheney builds that case.
