To answer subbys question...no. These days a lot of conservatives are "non compos mentis", and are overrunning the Republican party.

Having worked and lived there I can tell you: NO! Mouth breathing, drooling morons LOVE their Cheeto head. She stood up for rule of law and now is gonna get smacked down.

2022-08-14 1:00:10 PM  
Maybe. Under current conditions, no, but given the death spiral the GQP is in regarding the raid on Trump, what's going to happen to the more insane conservatives between now and election day?

No.

But maybe she should go full MAGA and throw a monkey wrench in the vote counting.

She's gonna lose big.

No, Wyoming is far too stupid.
 
2022-08-14 1:04:36 PM  
Haha nope. Just watched a video on CNN, they're all frothy about her standing up to Trump.
 
2022-08-14 1:04:49 PM  
lol no.

She's up against Trump. Trump is their god.

I think Cheney is playing the long game: she wants the White House. With the J6 Committee she's auditioned as the 'reasonable, non-MAGA' Republican and banking on the GOP soon to be doing whatever they can to distance themselves from TFG after the approaching fallout.

No idea if it will be successful but I don't think a primary loss is going to derail her bigger plans.
 
2022-08-14 1:07:56 PM  
The headline implies. maybe inadvertently, that Wyoming idiocy is a new thing.  It ain't.  They've always been stupid.

Yep. She's calculating that going down in a fire during the primary will prove her bona fides here and elevate her to a potential shot at the nomination. If she wins her primary, though, she'll fade out.

They will instead be called "radical reactionaries." They have broken decisively with anything resembling Conservatism. Don't dignify them with that category.

It's a cult now. There's no breaking it.
 
2022-08-14 1:37:23 PM  
She's going to lose but there is probably some percentage point loss that will help her decide whether she runs as an independent.
 
2022-08-14 1:40:55 PM  
Y'all know that, outside the J6 committee, she's not on your side.

Right?

I doubt anyone on Fark is under any delusions about Liz Cheney's stance on important issues, other than the coup.

Thank you.  Liz Cheney was down with everything the GOP had been doing - right up until the MAGAts tried to kill her.  Don't let her fool you, she's still every bit as evil as her dad.

Nazism isn't technically a mental illness.

It's a House seat in Wyoming.  It's going to go to some retrograde Republican.  Don't ask me to be heartbroken about a Cheney losing an election, especially one of so little importance.  That Dick Cheney ad alone would probably have made *me* vote against her.  If Trump is a fascist, at least he's really farking bad at it.  The architects of the Patriot Act and Iraq know how it's done.

The problem with beating back the tide of idiocy in Wyoming is that if you somehow manage to succeed, there'd be nothing left.

Solid troll.  Would be less effective, I think, if her family hadn't essentially worked in DC for the last 50 years.

Strike her down, and she will come back stronger than ever.

Lisa Murkowski lost the R primary in AK due to a successful primary challenge by a TEA Partier (the forerunner to abject Qnacy), but then still won as a write-in in the general election.

No idea if Cheney might try to run as an independent write-in in the general, but victory is not unprecedented if so.

Listen, if Darth Cheney is shilling for you you are NOT good people. Sure, she did a decent thing by not siding with Traitors bent on destroying your democracy so they could replace it with mob and gerrymandered rule, but that's the extent of it.

Or that Liz Cheney is a liberal.

Liz Cheney is the epitome of the lesser of several evils, but I would take the lesser evil over any MAGA/Q Anon/neo-Nazi-in-everything-but-name-only nutjob that runs against her.

But since in politics we can never have anything nice, or even less than horrible, she's going to lose.

Not liking the way the war criminal's daughter steered the J6 committee narrative with respect to  J6 orchestration.

After watching Vice and remembering that Dick Cheney was a one-time Presidential candidate, and that's what got him VP -- I think your take is the right one. That family has always aspired to more than just  Congress.
 
2022-08-14 4:44:42 PM  
We're already seeing stupid articles about her possibly running for President. Her father ran the country from behind the scenes in a way that made Trump possible, so imma say no and she can go F herself.

They have a sour grapes law, I believe, so she can't.

If you campaigned as a full maga brain worm carrier, won an election and then revealed yourself as a leftist plant, could anything besides a recall election be done? I imagine your party could kick you out but then you'd just be an independent with the position.

That always disturbed me. It reeked of post-2000 pre-2016 election interference.

I'm more apt to believe there was Alaskan GOP Senate primary shenanigans and Alaskan general election rigging than a successful write-in Senate campaign.

How TF is a write-in candidate going to win a senate seat.

Depending on what she learned from her father, she might be able to beat back the tide, or at least rain blows down upon it.

If she really wanted to do damage to the party, she's be a candidate GOP or not. Not too sure if she could run as independent or it's too late for 2022, but it would've been quite a vote-splitter within the conservatives.

I imagine your party could  would not kick you out but then you'd just be an independent Manchinema with the position.

Party elites like Cheney fed their base bullshiat for years. Trump actually tries to enact some of that bullshuat and is a criminal. They created this monster by using their base to get tax cuts fir billionaires and feeding them a steady stream of fear and propaganda on Fox news. She has reaped what she has sowed. Unfortunately it may be destroy the country in the process.
