IS SHE A PROFESSIONAL PUNDIT NOW?…. After Obama’s speech in Cairo this morning, the “Morning Joe” crew began its analysis. Apparently concerned that Liz Cheney hasn’t been on the cable networks nearly enough lately, “Morning Joe” invited the former Bush administration official to offer more obligatory criticism of the president.

Former VP’s daughter tells MSNBC she “was troubled by the extent to which I heard moral relativism.”

Whatever. Liz Cheney’s disappointment is of no real consequence. It’s neither surprising nor interesting. Concerns about “moral relativism,” coming from a Bush administration official, are a little too ironic, anyway.

And therein lies the point: why is Liz Cheney on television every day? Are we approaching the point at which every important presidential speech requires a Cheney response?
