Dick Cheney’s KC visit a chilling reminder of GOP’s deadly war policies

Dick Cheney – one of the most hated and hateful vice presidents in recent U.S. history – was in Kansas City Wednesday night….
….So exactly why some Republicans might have thought it was a good idea to have Cheney’s name associated with the selection of where to hold their national convention escapes me.
Sure, Cheney is still seen as a saint by hard-right figures in the party.
But he’s also the exact kind of spiteful leader that Republicans won’t need out front campaigning for their 2016 presidential nominee, at least if the GOP wants to win back the White House by gaining votes from more moderate Americans….
Does anyone think we have any chance of getting a media credential? Just asking.
