Watching Liz Cheney crash and burn is fun...

 
The three-term congresswoman - a sheep in wolf's clothing if ever there was one - may lose her seat in Tuesday’s Republican primary election in Wyoming, the most watched congressional primary of the year. Opinion polls show Cheney trailing Harriet Hageman, conservative lawyer and Trump’s choice, and defeat for the 'clarion voice' of the January 6 panel will, in many eyes, make her a martyr for Democrats. Good for her. Fuck her and fuck them, too..
It will also signal a tectonic shift in Wyoming, the least populated state in America and one of the most devoutly Republican. Its most consequential political figure is Dick Cheney, vice-president under George W Bush and father of Liz. Last week, in cowboy hat, fleece and gruff tones, he recorded a campaign video for her, excoriating Trump as a “coward” and saying there has never been anyone who is a “greater threat to our republic”.
 

Victory for Hageman would therefore be widely interpreted as a repudiation of Wyoming’s most venerable political dynasty, evidence that the state Republican party no longer belongs to the Cheneys but to Trump. That would reflect a final national pivot away from the Bush era establishment to the “Make America Great Again” movement – from old school conservatism to far-right populism - and a move in the right (no pun intended) direction after two years of stupidity and failure.

  1. Liz Cheney voted with Trump's agenda 96% of the time. It was only when he broke the law that she joined the January 6 Committee to get to the bottom of things. She's one of the most conservative politicians out there.

    1. What law did he break? And if he did, he hasn't been charged, so wtf dude...

    2. You mean, aside from fraud? Inciting to violence? And, it turns out, mishandling classified material (think about the chant "Lock her up" for JUST A SECOND...). Then tell me why he had Top Secret nuclear weapons intelligence in a box at Mar-a-lago.

      And that's just off the top of my head, from the most recent news. I'm sure if I felt like taking some time, I can come up with more.

      And why hasn't he been charged? Maybe because they started at the bottom and are working their way up?

  2. Kansas has had problems in the past with dems changing registration to vote in Republicam primaries. The solution is to require a party issued primary voters I.D. The primary voter should be a registered member of the party, not just on the voter rolls.
