Line Forms To The Right

Liz Cheney stars in Dirty Dancing!

As we have noted, MPS is not a fan of Blam-Blam’s little deferment, Liz Cheney (The most important former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in our nation’s history, maybe ever and ousted 3rd-ranking GOP member of the House) – but this is really stupid:

The Race to Replace Liz Cheney Is a Trump Sideshow

“[S]ix candidates onstage didn’t just castigate Cheney for calling out Trump’s unfounded claims about the election he lost, or just enthusiastically embrace those claims themselves. They bragged about being in Washington for the Jan. 6 riot. They endorsed nationwide audits of the 2020 election … and they flirted with leading threads of the QAnon conspiracy theory.

“Wyoming’s GOP congressional hopefuls run the full gamut of experience, poise, and polish. Some are total newcomers who’ve never held or campaigned for office. Some are state lawmakers and party officials. But all are exactly the same when it comes to the most important qualification in today’s Republican Party: unswerving personal devotion to Trump.”

Now, we’re not saying that these challengers are going to wake up with a severed horse head next to them, but it takes some brass to attack Blam-Blam’s brat in their (alleged) home state.

The NYTimes has a related story:

Liz Cheney’s Unlikely Journey From G.O.P. Royalty to Republican Outcast

“She has received a stream of death threats, common menaces among high-profile critics of [DONALD] TRUMP, and is now surrounded by a newly deployed detail of plainclothes, ear-pieced agents. Her campaign spent $58,000 on security from January to March, including three former Secret Service officers … [Rep. LIZ]CHENEY was recently assigned protection from the Capitol Police, an unusual measure for a House member not in a leadership position.”

Wingnuttia usually circles the wagons around its own royalty, and these two stories tell us that we really are in a different world; this isn’t Trumpism (that’s a lifeboat when they eventually rebrand), this is the Republican Party bereft of (bad) policy: it is a cult of personality now and their golden calf is a mango-hued shitgibbon.

Nothing good is going to come from this.

    Obviously, the rubes choose to ignore the patience and longevity of a Cheney. Once TFG crosses the rainbow bridge Liz will be ready and waiting to form the GQP into her own image.

    “Let’s see,” say NYT editors, “how do we both-sides this and follow up with a marshmallow interview article with a death threatener?”

    “They bragged about being in Washington for the Jan. 6 riot.” Was this candidate forum recorded? Is there any chance the FBI could act on these confessions?

    “Cult of Personality”, I do believe you hit the nail on the head there. They have no policy, no platform, except “all for the rich”, so what else can they offer except personality.
    But does it have to be the biggest jerk in every town that they offer up?
    There must be sanity left in the rethugs, somewhere.
