Liz Cheney Sinks To New Lows; Defends "Birthers" On Larry King

Just when you think this thing can't top herself (or her father), comes this (via TPM). My favorite part of this saga is hard to choose though. Is it James Carville's stunned disbelief as she steps into this paranoid frey or how later, when it's obvious she has stepped in it big time, Ben Smith of Politico is the one who put forth Lizzie's "clarification," (as the good water boy he is):

Larry King later bluntly asked, "Are you saying because he's a Kenyan?" To which she responded: "No, I'm not saying that."

In an e-mail to Ben Smith, Cheney clarified her position:
