Liz Cheney To Take Show On The Road

🎶 “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life… 🎶

I dunno if this is good news or not:

(CNN)Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney said at The Texas Tribune festival Saturday that if former President Donald Trump becomes the Republican Party’s nominee for president in 2024, she will not remain a Republican.

“I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he is not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican,” Cheney said.

Cheney also said she will campaign for Democrats to ensure that Republican candidates who promote election lies do not get elected.

First off, good for Cheney for putting her values where her jaws are. She might be Darth’s Daughter, but this takes some brass ovaries.

But secondly, she is Darth’s Daughter. Her decision to not be a Republican is not the same  thing as being a Democrat. Also, this is a two-edged broad sword: would having an endorsement from a Cheney be a net-plus or a net-minus in a tough general election? A Cheney-endorsement in the primary would be the kiss of death.

Now all that gaming aside, Cheney is clearly agitating for a sane Republican Party, and for herself to lead it. If Hair Füror is in the ol’ pry-bar motel, she might have a lane, and then all of this is absolutely out the window.

    Darth’s daughter or not, she just may be the perfect woman to break TFG’s balls. I can only wish her the best in her endeavours…

    I have respect for Cheney as I have respect for Barry Goldwater. I wouldn’t want either in the White House, but they are true to their beliefs. She has evolved on some issues, such as same-sex marriage, and voted for the Defense of Marriage Act. Goldwater denounced the “kooks” who were taking over the Republican Party and he opposed the ban on gays in the military. You can respect someone with whom you don’t agree. That is missing from the current Republican Party.

    Yeah- she is absolutely positioning herself. It’s the only play she has left. But, if she can gets that open lane, she will have a better chance than she ever would have pre-45 of getting that oval shaped office.
