Cheney calls Thune, Cantor "rising stars"

Dick Cheney has his eyes on a couple rising twinkles in the GOP.

Cheney said he does believe that eventually the “pendulum will swing” back in favor of Republicans, and that meanwhile his party has some impressive rising stars in Congress. He mentioned six of them by name: House members Eric Cantor of Virginia, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Adam Putnam of Florida, and senators Jon Kyl of Arizona, John Thune of South Dakota and Richard Burr of North Carolina.

In the interview, he also praises those "enhanced interrogation techniques". Evidently, torture works!
