Today, we are talking with Mary Cheney about her new book, a href=”http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?link_code=as2path=ASIN/141652049Xtag=wwwviolentkicomcamp=1789creative=9325″Now It’s My Turn : A Daughter’s Chronicle of Political Life./aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=141652049X” width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / Ms. Cheney worked as her father’s campaign manager in the 2000 and 2004 Presidential election and tells us about the trials and tribulations of the job, starting with the fact that she was targeted by Democrats for being the “lesbian daughter of a Republican Vice President.” She discusses being part of a political family, her favorite blogs and their importance in politics and the hostility of the media. She tells us what she wants readers to know about her father–that he is not the monster, killer, robot etc. that the media has touted him as. In fact, he is actually a pretty nice guy and a good father who supported her no matter what. br /br /You can listen to the podcast by a href=”http://podcasts.instapundit.com/MaryCheneyShow052206.mp3″clicking here/a or you can a href=”http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=116559643s=143441″subscribe on iTunes./a You can hear our previous podcasts at the archive a href=”http://instapundit.com/archives/cat_podcasts.php”here,/a and there’s a dialup version a href=”http://www.instapundit.com/extra_archives/2006_02.php#028499″here./abr /br /Please leave comments or suggestions below.
