Three-Cheney Consulting?

If Democrats were tired of one Cheney, they may be alarmed to learn that there may be three to contend with. The Washington Post reports that Mary Cheney, daughter of the former vice president and sister of Obama critic Liz, is leaving her current political consulting firm, Navigators Global, to start an independent strategic consulting firm. Despite denials from the Cheney family spokesperson, a friend of Mary's and a couple of her Navigator colleagues insist that Liz and Dick will be a part of the new firm. Not everyone is happy about Dick's involvement. As a senior Republican consultant put it: "Why can't he learn to play golf? It was good enough for Agnew. Why is it not good enough for Dick Cheney? Seriously, he should be working the Jackson Hole/Palm Springs circuit."
