Need advice on the ins and outs of waterboarding or invading a rogue nation? Look no further than Mary Cheney's new political consulting firm. Cheney, the former veep's lesbian daughter, is leaving her job to start her own company, and insiders say she plans to bring both dad Dick and ascendant-GOP-star/sister Liz on board. "It would be an extraordinary venture and I'm certain a successful one," said a former aide to Dick Cheney.

Some Republicans, however, are a lot cooler on the idea, reports the Washington Post. "Why can't he learn how to play golf?" one senior Republican consultant asked. "It was good enough for Agnew." The clients Cheney, Cheney & Cheney are likely to attract, he added, would include "lots of right-wing dictators." (More Liz Cheney stories.)
