“The future of the Cheney message,” added a conservative blogger who goes by the name of Fingers Malloy (a rare man in this crowd, and even rarer, one with a Mohawk). He also called her “one of the fresh faces of our movement.”

Paul Begalla is worried about how this will change voter turnout in 2012.
“Clearly Fingers is the voice of his generation,” said Begalla. “ We thought President Obama was the voice of youth, clearly we were wrong.”*
Ann Coulter was shocked.
“I thought I was the woman that Malloy admired most. I don’t know what to believe in anymore.”*
The endorsement even rocked Hollywood. Speaking of the quote in the Times, Kathy Griffin said;
“I’m busy sucking the life out of America. Go find someone with less talent than me to speak with, if that’s possible.”*
There has been no reaction yet from Cheney’s camp. But word has spread that 2 cases of champagne was sent to her office, along with balloons and streamers.
