Report: K-Mac Is Stuck Between a Rock Head and a Dumb Place

No one puts Liz Cheney in the corner!

Both of the morning email thingies from Tiger Beat on the Potomac/Politico (and thank-you Brother Pierce for that sobriquet!) lead with breathless takes on Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming, Blam-Blam’s daughter), who as we know is the most important former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in our nation’s history, maybe ever and 3rd-ranking GOP member of the GOP.

Essentially, both emails agree with themselves that she’s neck-deep in the merde with her own caucus for refusing to say goodbye to the Reality World.

That said, if the Coup Klux Klan really does plan to remove her from a leadership role in their party, they must put it to a vote of their caucus, and they probably have enough votes to do it (remember that 147 GQPers voted against certifying the election results).

So what is holding K-Mac and the other he-man, woman-haters from doing it? (SPOILER that was a clue!)

They have no women in party leadership roles other than Blam-Blam’s little deferment, and as their fate allegedly rests with suburban women voters, kicking Liz Cheney out of leadership might not go over well.

Sen. Susan Collins is concerned, very concerned about it, and issues a heretical statement to Possum Hollar:

“We are not a party that is led by just one person.”

“BURN THE WITCH!!1!” – Possum Hollar hollers back. The Coup Klux Klan absolutely is being led by just one person, and my guess is that K-Mac at some point is going to have to deal with this, what with being stuck between an orange rock head and a dumb place.

So… what about expelling Cheney from the House (“some ask”), getting Democrats on board?

Sure, Jan.  The reality-based Democrats —as much as they probably hate Cheney— are not going to try to stop the GOP Civil War. Also, we are still concerned about the Stupid Coup.

Popcorn, anyone?

MPS is not a fan of any Cheney, ever, but we are fans of the Reality World.

  1. Yah know, I wonder if the GQP leadership understands that “da skoits in the ‘burbs” ren’t turning against them because they don’t have women in the leadership…it’s because they’re fucking bugnuts crazee.

    “We are not a party that is led by just one person.” I’m not exactly sure what she means by the word “led”, however I like the thought that it is a party that has been effectively crippled by just one person.

    Howdy y’all!

    I’m afraid that everyone is missing the point. Trump and the feud with Cheney is just a distraction while the GQP destroys our democracy. There is no civil war in the GQP. The base and vile Trump supporting side won.

    I’ll be the first to say that it is fun making fun of the folks and all, but the real attention needs to be on organizing to GotV for 2022. We lose the majorities in Congress and our democracy is gone. And, given the structural advantages that the Repubes have, it is a very real possibility. Everything has to go perfectly for us to Stacy Abrams the 2022 elections. And, if we do, the other side will be inclined to violent resistance claiming that they are stolen.

    In some ways, it isn’t fun anymore.

    Huzzah!

      CalicoJAck –

      Every election is and will be about getting out the vote; I’m not dismissing a thing you say, but for 2022 we don’t have candidates yet, and heck, we don’t even have districts maps.

      But since you raise it — and it is a very good point — here’s the names of some Democrats added to the GOP Target List this morning (Politico again), so if you have a chance me peeps, try to support these representatives:

      BREAKING THIS MORNING — The NRCC announced a few minutes ago that it added 10 House Democrats to its list of takeover targets, bringing the total to 57. It’s a show of confidence that the 2022 environment is favorable to Republicans, especially post-reapportionment. The additional Democrats they’re targeting are AMI BERA (Calif.), JIM COSTA (Calif.), RAUL RUIZ (Calif.), MARIE NEWMAN (Ill.), DAN KILDEE (Mich.), KATHLEEN RICE (N.Y.), PAUL TONKO (N.Y.), JOE MORELLE (N.Y.), BRIAN HIGGINS (N.Y.) and CHRISSY HOULAHAN (Pa.).

      Back to 2022…

      What we do have are state-house Republicans trying to suppress voting, and that’s plenty bad enough. That on a national-level they don’t have unanimity even on their messaging and significant in-fighting is a net-plus for us. For every day that The GQP cannot get their act together, Democrats can pump legislation through the sausage maker, and get the message out that through word and deed that Democrats are working for us, making our lives better.

        Forgive me if the habit of the Dems of pulling defeat from the jaws of victory leaves me unwary of their ability to get any kind of coherent message out about their legislative goals. Past is prologue and past behavior is the best predictor — not unfailable, though — of future behavior. Traditionally, the GQP has been better at messaging and has the more effective messaging. I still can’t believe that merely uttering socialism as an epitaph is as effective as it was in 2020. And, the iNdEpEnDeNt VoTeR has a notoriously short attention span and memory to match. Thus, every eight years, we get a GQP president who cuts taxes and destroys the economy leading to the election of a Dem president who takes eight years to rebuild the economy just in time for a Repube to be elected to destroy it again. Forgive me for thinking that the combination of voter suppression laws, gerrymandering, packed judiciary, and structural advantages will be too much for the high quality of organizing that was done in Georgia to overcome the impediments that the GQP put in the way of Georgia voters in 2020. Sequels rarely are as good as the original.

        I hate to be so pessimistic, but it seems like it is going to be a steep climb with or without nominated candidates or districts.

        Huzzah!

        Jack –

        I’m permanently pessimistic (though I prefer “realistic”) when it comes to elections, especially midterms.

        When you are running against The Borg, who are always so message disciplined it’s near impossible.

        But that’s why because the have no unified message YET that I find hope.

        But the hive mind will get on with it as soon as their civil war concludes and they get rid of their free-thinkers

        I guess I’m just feeling excessively realistic, if you know what I mean.
