Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday was frank about his relationship with Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi (R), who faces a primary challenge from Cheney’s daughter Liz.
“Well, Mike also said he and I are fishing buddies, which is simply not true. Never happened,” Cheney said on ABC’s “This Week.”
In the 40+ years that both Enzi and Cheney have been in Wyoming politics, there’s probably some event where both of them fished in the same river at the same time, and I’ll bet the Enzi campaign is looking for that picture at this very moment, if they don’t have it already. That said, can a set of human beings be any more petty and dishonest than the Cheneys have been in Liz’s campaign? Liz has already tried to throw the clerk who sold her a fishing license under the bus, Mary and Liz have been in a Facebook fight about gay marriage, and Lynn told Alan Simpson to shut up in front of witnesses. With Dick’s contribution, every single one of them has said something stupid and damaging almost a year before the primary.
