Bravo. Congratulations to the House Select Committee for presenting the opening arguments in their first in a series of public hearings last night, in which they told us what they’d show us over the course of the next couple of weeks. I’m stocking up on popcorn. Last night was the Thompson-Cheney show, and Cheney was the star. Just goes to show you, justice has strange bedfellows. Liz Cheney could never be confused for anything but a right wing ultra conservative. She is, after all, her father’s daughter. But she also proved herself to be a formidable prosecutor (her law degree served her well), and an unlikely hero of the left ON THIS ISSUE ALONE. Bennie Thompson did a good job chairing the proceedings, and began the session with a brief but important history lesson.
