I'm pretty sure she would become the most evil Senator upon taking office.

Is this the new Helen Keller/Anne Frank meme?

I was wondering that too... Mary Cheney is the lesbian (and likely the least evil member of the family).

What if it was on purpose to try and get him to have a heart attack. Would she be a horrible person then?

There isn't enough mind bleach on the entire planet to rid myself of that mental image.

The GOP establishment is completely united in their opposition to this. She'll be out of the race in a week.

He has to have a heart in the first place for that to happen.

I was at the real republican national convention in 2012. Liz Cheney's evil goatee isn't as massive as Dick's. I only have an evil mustache.

I also love the blatant anti-meritocratic nature of this. This person has never held any position of any sort in her life, and from what I can tell has absolutely no qualifications for this job other than being Dick Cheney's daughter. Meritocracy, amiright?
 
2013-07-16 09:06:43 PM  
She is going to have to beat the republican incumbent in, what I can only hope, will be a really nasty primary.
And here I am within driving distance to Cheyenne...I hope I can get some pictures of it.

But they're so much FUN!

Maybe if he sweats too much that thing in his chest will short circuit. That'd be kinda like a heart attack.
 
2013-07-16 09:16:27 PM  
ok apart from all the hate on her, what's interesting is what Slate said about this - the start of civil war in GOP

established wisdom that many GOP reps in gerrymandered electorates worry only about being beaten in primaries by guys even more right wing,  so they see no value in compromising lest they be tagged "too moderate"

to me it seems like an obvious tactic that Democrats should be encouraging a third party of moderate Republicans, preferably under name like Repablican Party and with candidates who've changed their names to Raygun and Jefferson

possible outcomes - split the vote and let a Democrat through, drag GOP positions to the centre, maybe even elect the funny candidate

Such hateful divisive politics...sigh. Darth Cheney, more machine than man, left the Dark Side at the end. And, let's not forget Liz would have rather kissed a Wookie, or her brother, than Han. Inter-species sex and incest are already covered.

These aren't the Republicans you are looking for.

And Dems in Gerrymandered districts probably have to worry about the same thing except to the left, and they can Gerrymander their districts more because the Justice dept doesn't have to approve theirs. Start a 3rd party of them under a name like the Demicrat party and with canidates who've changed their names to Kennedy and Clinton

Liz Cheney, the eldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, announced on Tuesday that she will challenge Senator Mike Enzi in Wyoming next year, a clash between two Republicans that some fear could damage the party.

Yeah, I'm gonna say it, cause all of you are too big a pussies to say it. Dick Cheney wasn't a very good VP. In fact, I don't think he was nearly the 'awesome dude' the GOP tried to make him seem.

But, he suffered from the same human frailties we all do. Who hasn't wanted to wipe entire races and cultures off the earth so we could buy the newest 7 series BMW with cash instead of having to remember payment dates (buying money orders is totally a biatch). Also someone said 'yellow cake' at some point so eff your sovereignty and such.

So the take away thing is this, cut the guy a break, he suffered so that America could also suffer.

FREEDOM FRIES!!!

These are the qualifications to be a US Senator:

- must be at least 30 years old,
- must have been citizens of the United States for at least the past nine years
- must be inhabitants of the states they seek to represent at the time of their election

Does she fulfill these requirements?  Yes?  Then she is qualified.

From wiki:

In 2002, Cheney was appointed to the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs,[5] a pre-existing vacant post with an "economic portfolio," which is a mandate to promote investment in the region. Amid reports, including a New York Times editorial by Paul Krugman, saying that the job was created especially for her, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said that she had come recommended by then-Secretary of State Colin Powell.[6][

Bootstraps!
