She is technically doing their dirty work.  At least, she is for those who aren't batsh*t MAGA

BTW although she is the lesser of two evils, Liz Cheney is not our friend.

They're asking people that normally vote Democratic Party to vote for her in the open primary. While hoping those same Democratic voters will also vote for her in the general election so they can keep the seat filled with someone that will vote the party line.

This.

Who knows what *other* evil sh*t she's complicit in. Besides, her last name is Cheney, that's reason enough not to trust her.

As voting goes, Liz Cheney is identical to a MAGAT in all but she's against open violent treason. That's the only farking difference.

Not exactly an ally

She's only against violent treason because it didn't succeed. I imagine she'd be quite happy being a senator under Emperor Trump
 
2022-08-06 4:59:33 AM  
Sorry republicans, Trump's your boss now and he gets to fire anyone who doesn't kiss his ass just the right way.

Still feel that the "power" you gained by hurting people was worth it?

She's lawful evil as opposed to Trump's chaotic evil and McConnell's neutral evil.

Pence still supports Trump. Which leads to the conclusion that the Republican party consists of a combination of sadists and masochists.

\sometimes they're the same person

That said... the midterms will be the test.

No idea what the Yanks will pull out their arses next as far as self destructive stupidity goes.

Then again the Tries have been mucking about on your side of the pond as well and we've got some real reckless premieres running amok over here lately too.

It's Wyoming. I would chortle if somehow she wins her Primary and enough Trump true believers sat out the election so that a Democrat won the Wyoming Senate seat.

I don't think that would happen, but I can dream, can't I?

It's a House of Representatives seat, not the Senate, but you've got the right idea.  Create confusion and doubt so that the MAGAs stay at home questioning whether or not Harriet Hengmengehukemier is a MINO (MAGA In Name Only). 

You know, just like Fark Fake Democrats do around here.

She seems quite smart and reasonable, which is odd for a conservative. But as soon as the committee closes up shop, I won't trust her.

You said "Fark Fake Democrats" twice.

I honestly don't know who that describes.

fark all Republicans. She contributed to the current disaster that is her party. She can deal with the consequences. Not one Dem should help her out. She doesn't get bonus points just because she knows Trump tried to overthrow an election and believes he should be punished for it. That's not bravery. It's farking common sense.

I haven't been following all that closely, still hnrtfa for example.

last I paid attention, she was saying the election was legitimate, and consistently, publicly challenging any fellow GOPers who said otherwise, incl on fox.

[multiple fark threads, all sorts of opinions, 'progressives' insisting everyone else fawning over a monster etc etc]

I thought that had effectively destroyed any political aspirations she had.  does it now appear that course of action was cynical in some way ?

what's the dirty work she's doing?  is she aware of it?

Lady J: what's the dirty work she's doing?  is she aware of it?


She's laying the foundation to pry that golden albatross off their necks

(pardon the mixed metaphor)

A substantial segment of the GOP despise TFG, but they're too afraid to say anything because the rabid dogs will pile on them.  Cheney is doing their dirty work in the sense that she's doing the job that needs doing which THEY don't want to touch

Would read this but:

* Is an Axios article
* Also about Liz Cheney

We know that this newfound support  is only happening because:

* Trump only wants petty revenge
* GOP wants to maintain control
* Polls are shifting, show that the midterms are not the presumptive GOP they first thought
* Axios is still annoying
