No One Puts Liz Cheney In A Corner

Liz Cheney stars in Dirty Dancing!

Guys, our pal and fellow Scissorhead 10 Bears (AKA Cassandra’s Grandson) over at Homeless on the High Desert gave us a warning that we would be well-advised to heed: if Liz Cheney is defeated in her 2022 primary, she will have two years to position her 2024 Goat Rodeo Run.

And right on cue, we have the news:

A Casper Star-Tribune poll released Friday showed Trump-endorsed Hageman with a 22-point lead over Cheney.

NBC’s Marc Caputo gets his hands on another Wyoming poll — via WPA Intelligence for the conservative Club for Growth — which shows Hageman up 28 points among likely primary voters, 59%-31%. (The Club for Growth has endorsed Hageman.)

From Caputo: “Those results are based on a model in which 13% of the primary’s voters are Democrats (Wyoming allows party-switchers to vote in primaries). The poll tested two other scenarios, where Democrats are 20% or 25% of the electorate, and Hageman still leads Cheney by 18 percentage points and 12 points, respectively.”

Never, ever underestimate Blam-Blam’s little squirt. She’s all Cheney, through and through.

Same story gives us the finances:

Cheney is among the five GOP incumbents who outraised their Trump-backed challengers in the latest fundraising quarter, although Hageman is the best-funded challenger of the group. Cheney raised $2.9 million to Hageman’s $1.8 million, ending the quarter on June 30 with nearly $7 million in her campaign account to Hageman’s $1.4 million. Cheney also spent nearly twice as much as Hageman over the quarter.

And please, don’t come at me with the wonderful news about how good she in on the J6C hearings. Remember Liz Cheney is there to HURT people who are in the way of her ambitions.

    Thank you Ten, I would only add that those who parade her as a third-party to trump (or trump third party to her traditional repub) spoiler at advantage to the dems need to dissuade themselves of the notion. She is Darth’s Daughter, and Darth is The Deep State. And while the Lincoln Project provides handy tools the dems as yet have not who do you think will be in the bag for her from day one?

      You got there first, but I think we’ve been aligned on this from pretty much the beginning.

      No treachery from the Cheney’s will ever surprise me, treachery is their default setting.

    She’s been astoundingly good on the J-6 committee, but her quest for higher office will go nowhere. With the overturning of Roe V Wade, she will have a hard time convincing the voters to let her or any other GQP wannabees in the Oval Orifice. I’m assuming that the Supremes don’t change the voting laws to allow red state legislatures to choose the Prez…


  3. The Cheney philosophy is, as it always has been, “Dick (and they’re all dicks) Cheney gots to get paid”. It was true when he selected himself as Vice President, created the excuse for war, and hey presto!, his company lands huge no bid contracts for war machines. 9/11 was almost certainly not a conspiracy, but it sure served his needs, though he would have gotten there anyway.

    Rest assured, his progeny is well schooled in the Cheney priorities:
    #1 – When the money flows, it flows to us
    #2 – When the shooting starts, the money flows
    #3 – We never do any of the actual shooting (unless we’re drunk and someone pisses us off)
    #4 – Who we’re shooting at is of no consequence to us
    #5 – We will never have enough money

    Her primary Presidential plank: “Just as vile as Trump, but we keep the quiet parts quiet”.

    The John Birch Society craziness of the 50s and early 60s got shut down, in large part, because of the Kennedy assassination. There was no direct connection, but the moment led a whole lot of people to step back and evaluate their rage.

    Barring that kind of moment, I don’t think the fascist wing of the Rs is going away any time soon. Some MAGAt is going to drive up to Iowa around Christmastime with an AR-15 and a mission.

    I’m thinking 2028, at least. She’ll be 63 then, plenty of time.

    I don’t mind Liz Cheney shooting trump in the face on the regular and I do mind the Liz Cheney cheer squad who can’t be bothered to point out that the entirety of the J6 Commission is excellence in public service.
    Commission Benny Thompson speaks softly with a Southern regional warmth, but his words are imbued with the heaviness and historical receipts. He, not Liz Cheney, is my hero of the resistance.

      Yeah, Laura, I’m with you. I never really heard of him before, but I like him so much. Even though he is unfailingly nice, you know he could rain down thunder with an Old Testament voice if he wanted to.

      What I’m saying is he commanded my respect and he got it.
