Yep.

It says so much about her, but it says so much more about Cult45.

It's innumerated now. It's a f*cking Trump cult, it's not even the Republican Party anymore.

Subby, that was in 2003, 19 years ago. Liz Cheney, who's 56 now, would have only been 37 then. That's barely a decade past what's almost unanimously considered young adulthood, which is a very formative period in most people's lives. Your brain doesn't really stop developing until your mid 30s, anyway, that's science. You can't blame her for not remembering something that happened so early in her life.

First of all, I'm sick of farking nepotism. Especially nepotism that comes from someone like Dick Cheney. And she spoke to Rush Limbaugh, fark you. And well, she did vote to impeach Trump, so that's one feather in her cap I suppose.

The Wyoming GOP censured her, and later voted to no longer recognize her as a Republican.

I don't even know what that means.
 
2022-08-17 11:54:11 AM  
Good, good. Make sure she gets linked to her father before libs start feeling sympathetic to her blight.

Boosted her profile pretty good though, having a backbone, weird as that was for everyone.
 
2022-08-17 11:54:13 AM  
The only good thing Liz did was oppose Trump but that is a very low bar to clear.
 
2022-08-17 11:54:32 AM  
So a slightly less terrible person lost to a much more terrible person and now there are a dozen articles telling us how to feel about that.
Fun.

If you can shoot a guy in the face and have him apologize, you can rat out CIA agents.

Cheering Liz on for being willing to hold trim accountable is kind of like cheering your 40 year old child for not pooping their pants.

If voters chose poorly, she told Rush Limbaugh in 2016, the next president "would be the most corrupt individual ever to sit in the Oval Office."

Well she was right about that.

It's when they all vote without her, then when Liz comes in, they all turn their backs on her and put their fingers in their ears.  Its devastatingly effective in kindergarten.

"Liz Cheney Was Defeated By the Extremist Movement She Helped to Empower..."

...should be tattooed on Dick Cheney's face.
 
2022-08-17 12:01:43 PM  
I have said this all along: Liz Cheney is nothing more than an opportunist. She thought it would be politically advantageous to pivot away from Trump after 1/6, and she wanted to get in front of it. She committed to the position fully. I grudgingly admit that it's to her credit that she stuck with her position, but this was not borne of principle. She rounded the base too far and was caught in a rundown.
 
2022-08-17 12:02:05 PM  
I remember all of my family were shocked to learn about GWB43.com when they claimed about hEr EmAiLs.

Everything old is new again, which is why a lot of us tend to say "ain't nothing gonna happen," because like... There's strong precedent for it!

That being said, the fact that Trump stole farking nuclear secrets and seemingly has nobody to call on his sword this time is making me slightly hopeful.

I can't see how anybody can have sympathy for her. She's still a republican FFS! They're still the party of Trump, and she's the vice chair of the Fark Donald Committee. It's great that she's had an epiphany about Trump but she hasn't figured out that the entire party is corrupt beyond repair.

It's literally covered in a scene from the film Vice.  She should check it out.

It's not that much of a backbone. I think there's a portion of Republicans that know that Trump is a destabilizing force, and unstable countries make for less rich billionaires that fund the GOP agenda.  She wants to get rid of Trump because he's farking with rich people's money.  More than that, she knows Trump won't win elections any more.  So him at the head of the party means another Democratic administration.  She's a pragmatist.  If Trump had pulled off his coup she would have been fine with it.

She can fark off.

She could run as an independent and siphon off some TFG's votes.....

Not sure how she could raise funds though


Yeah I think TFG will run again

sniderman: Just remember: The Cheneys are evil personified. But the Trumps are worse.


The Trump's are just dumb and corrupt assholes.  They fall upward but they're just con men.

The Cheney's are evil and calculating.  While the Trump's will hitch their wagon to whatever gets them money, the Cheneys will pull the levers to invade, overthrow or control any government to do their bidding.  They have probably had a hand in more people dying than Trump did with COVID.

"I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn't sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric, but he has helped you. He's helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster, and now you're profiting off of him. If you're going to profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money, because he doesn't have any."

Liz is right about Trump.  I will nod and assent to her saying this on any platform that will have her.

For literally anything else pertaining to the U.S. Government at any level, her neocon ass can fark right off and stay farked off forever.

Every time I drive to Philly I get a farking parking ticket because I can't figure out which side of the god damn street to park on.  Every farking time, I think I got it right and *bam* pay Gritty, motherfarker!  There are some great places to eat in that city, though.  I don't understand how anybody there weighs under 300lbs.  Seriously, Philly has some awesome eats.  Fark Pat's and Geno's.  Get yourself some truly good food.  You won't have to look much to find it.  If there's a fat Italian guy that looks like every stereotype that just shot across your head just sort of hanging around a place, that's a good sign.  Get dinner there.  You won't be disappointed.

When you fall on your sword for Dick Cheney (or someone like him on that level), you get something in return.  When you fall on your sword for Trump, he doesn't even ignore you.  He stabs you in the back to finish the job.
