Protester tries to arrest Dick Cheney on live broadcast, screen goes black

cspan_cheney_protesterNearly six years later, the fanatical left still wants a pound of flesh from Dick Cheney.

Politico’s Mike Allen was interviewing the former vice president, wife Lynne and daughter Liz on C-SPAN Monday when a loon with a pair of handcuffs began screaming that Cheney is a war criminal, according to Raw Story.

It looked as if the protester planned to arrest Cheney, before being detained by security.

Allen was trying to plug Lynne Cheney’s new book, “James Madison: a Life Reconsidered,” when the woman, wearing a pink sign, began the political theater.

“Oh, no!” Mrs. Cheney said with a laugh.

“Four more years! Four more years!” daughter Liz began chanting in mock fashion.

The camera swung around to briefly catch a shot of the protester, before the video went black. A C-SPAN announcer explained shortly thereafter that they were “having some problems with the feed.”
