Cheney Gains Rock-Star Status at CPAC

Remember this past Sunday when former Vice President Dick Cheney declared that he is a "big supporter" of waterboarding and effectively solidified his support for torture?

Remember how others have stated that is is pretty much a confession to conspiring to torture and how the Department of Justice should investigate and prosecute Cheney based off his claims?

Well I wonder how Cheney would be received at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) when he was announced as a surprise guest by his daughter Liz:

What an ovation! Check out this report from Ben Smith at Politico:

Chris Barron, organizer of "Draft Cheney," emails this morning that he's organizing a write-in vote for the former Vice President at the CPAC straw poll.

“We urge the grassroots conservatives who will be attending CPAC to join us in sending a powerful message about the future of our party, by writing in the name of the only person with the experience and conservative credentials necessary to lead our party in 2012 – write in Dick Cheney,” Barron says.

It looks like Conservatives at CPAC are more than willing to accept a man who openly embraces torture and openly thumbs his nose at the rule of law.
