How ironic is it that Liz Cheney may go down in history as one of the few in the Republican leadership willing to stand up against Trump's big lie while her father, Dick Cheney, already has a secure place in history as the primary perpetrator of the 21st Century's other biggest lie. Remember "Weapons of Mass Destruction"? His lie has already cost untold hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of disrupted and ruined lives as well as trillions of dollars – and it's still not over after 20 years.
