It really feels odd to be cheering for Liz Cheney about anything.
 
2021-05-11 8:43:54 PM  
Her father was hired to find a VP, and decided based on all the interviews that only he could do the job.

She'll never live up to her father.

/or compete with his body count

From here it all looks like face eating leopard schadenfreude.

Not that I can fault anyone for that in these circumstances .

Give Liz her Daddy's bird hunting shotgun. She has some spring cleaning to do, IMHO.

Do what I do and don't.

Just because I'm watching a prize fight doesn't mean I'm rooting for a specific fighter. Most times, I'm just watching a fight.

Why would you cheer for her.

She's in the list against democracy. She just thinks you rig the vote before, rather than after

Equally, no one watches Nascar because they enjoy watching driver's make left turns all day.

Kevin McCarthy dropped out of contention for Speaker against Paul Ryan when he got threatened with leaks about an affair he had. IDK why Liz isn't going nuclear on him by leaking the entire dirt file the leadership had on that ahole to help Ryan beat him. McCarthy came after her, turnabout is fair play.

Not that I give a fark about Liz Cheney, but it would be nice to hold the Trumpers to some sort of accountancy. That dark power needs to be vanquished somehow, even if it's by a slightly less dark power.

That'll happen when it's time to re-elect McCarthy as Minority Leader, and some asshole liike Scalise will get the job instead.

Hate her all you want but the reality is that right now she's an important part in the crumbling wall that's holding back fascism in the US. Trump is gone but that infection he left is raging, there's a lot more of this to come.

No. She's just another republican.

You may want to give her heroic status for believing what every single democrat believes. But she's a republican.

And there are no good republicans.

/her vote against HR1 tells us who she is

Serious question (for once)...if the Democrats for whatever crazy reason decided to put forth a major tax reduction for the rich bill, do you think the GOP could organize enough to actually support it at this point?

I'd say they could not.

Seriously. That's how badly they're f*cked up.

It doesn't matter who is better because Donny will shiat all over the game board, knock over the pieces and strut around like he won.

It maybe time to try that sketch from Key and Peele. You know....the one where Obama suggests the opposite of what he wanted to do.

In all seriousness, as a former member of the working press, the answer is simple: It takes time to arrange a good cut-out. You can't just be Liz Cheney, privy to sensitive information and yeet that shiat into the ring; you gotta arrange it so that there is at the least a plausible cover story. And that cannot be easy just now, even for a Cheney.

Also, you wanna time this shiat to do maximal damage. Maybe you hang fire until it's the last move, maybe you wait until you have something even more orangily juicy and release them together. Maybe you never release it but keep that whiny fark edged until he can't take it anymore and begins saying all the quiet parts out loud. Plenty of ways to kill in politics. Not all of them are shock and awe.

Sh*tlibs cheering for Liz Cheney is peak 2021. So far.

/the gop didn't magically turn to crap on jan 6th - it's been crap for decades
//this is all part of the gop's resurrection tour, and you're all suckers for supporting it
 
2021-05-12 12:10:56 AM  
It doesn't matter. Trump will just flip the board and shiat on the table after the third move.
 
2021-05-12 12:15:08 AM  
I love shiat like this:

""Rep. Cheney can no longer unify the House Republican conference," Gallagher said in a statement first reported by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Tuesday."

As if it's HER fault most of the Republican caucus has embraced the Big Lie.

NotCodger: It really feels odd to be cheering for Liz Cheney about anything.


Don't, she doesn't deserve it, she earned this.

She had her chance to be principled and take a meaningful stand. She chose to eat the cheeto dust, with a smile on her face and a complete unwillingness to work with anyone opposed to the Fanta Menace, until long after it was moot.

This is the leopards eating one of their own after a self inflicted wound got up a blood frenzy, nothing more.

There's nothing wrong with cheering for Godzilla, when he's the main character of a monster movie and burning down the city.
 
2021-05-12 12:20:30 AM  
I hope they both lose.
 
2021-05-12 12:25:11 AM  
Yeah, no. The Big Lie has been canonized within Republican doctrine. Trump has undying support. Liz Cheney does not. She's fighting a losing battle. The part where she hopes the fever will break isn't coming. There is no silent majority within GOP ranks that will line up to march with Liz Cheney. The few that exist will be censured and purged. A few might hold out, but they'll be the outliers. The ones like Mitt Romney. Not enough to actually affect the rank-and-file. They're all on board with Trump. Peddling the Big Lie. They took a huge loss (but not huge enough) with Trump, but they're going to double down on him. The only real question is how big the flash is when it comes to Liz Cheney's flash in the pan over fighting the Big Lie.
 
2021-05-12 12:25:26 AM  
Hey question for Farkistan. Has anyone ever commented on how much bigger Trump's left eye is? It always looks giant in every picture, compared to the right. The right eye always looks almost glass compared to the left. It is as though the left eye is his main one and it carries all of his consciousness and right one is just along for the ride. Creeps me out.

Also, fark that guy.
 
2021-05-12 12:26:04 AM  
Forget it Liz, it's Trump Town.

You helped create this monster. Sucks for you that he's taking you down. The rest of us don't give a rat's ass about you.

For a website that doesn't claim to support her, we're sure getting a lot of headlines about her.

Hey guys by agreeing with Liz Chaney that Trump is a wannabe dictator, you are praising her as a "hero" and are racist and want the Iraq war going on forever.

Well that's what I was told in past threads about this anyway.

Is it going to be a public vote?  I'd bet money it's anonymous, because they're all chickenshiats.
 
2021-05-12 12:44:08 AM  
From another CNN article: Any leadership vote is a secret ballot cast behind closed doors.

That is what I was wondering about. I couldn't recall ever reading that such things were done publicly nor could I recall ever seeing one. We already have our indications of how certain Representatives will vote but the political science junkie in me would absolutely love to get the detailed tally.

I'm sure she expects a quick, easy victory and to be greeted by the GOP as a liberator.

She's going to lose. Badly. There is no GOP anymore, only Trumpism.
