Dick Cheney's daughter Liz was a guest on Tuesday's "Morning Joe," and she took the opportunity to wipe the floor with the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson.
Earlier that day, Robinson had published a column

For the final act of his too-long public career, Cheney seems to have decided to become an Old Faithful of self-serving nonsense.
Liz clearly wasn't pleased by such disrespect to her father, and after the curtain opened, showed Robinson who the crazy old coot was (video in two parts embedded below the fold, h/t Marc Sheppard):
Are we seeing the making of a new, important, conservative political figure?
