The funniest thing i heard today was Bill Cunningham on the radio unceremoniously chastising Cheney as the daughter of a VP who "killed 40k iraiqs". Like this fark head EVER cared about Iraqis. The duplicity is astounding, except that I know Republicans are fark heads.

GHW Bush kept the crazy out of the GQP when he was in power (he expelled David Duke during his attempt at high elected office).  We did not have an attempted insurrection like January 6th 2021 back in the 1990s.  You have to go back to the 1860s for that.

Oh, and it's cute that Liz suddenly has "principles" (she voted lock-step with Trump the whole time, including on kid concentration camps).

Liz Cheney is also a bootlicking fascist who acted as a yes woman until it became a personal slight against her.

Cool, let me know when she's disavowed the entire republican party. Until then I don't give a shiat what she has to say

You should, because if enough people follow her out it would end for the foreseeable future any hope the GQP has of taking control of the government.

If you're at all serious about salvaging America, you should care a lot about what Cheney is saying.

If all you want to do is bray like a pin-stuck donkey, then by all means, carry on.

True, but how much did Liz Cheney care about those Iraqis, either?

Cheney isn't a hero. She's an ever-so-slightly less odious Nazi.

The fact that the daughter of a war criminal is the only resistance against the rise of fascism in her party is a testament to the uselessness of the GOP.

We're keeping a cancerous tumor around as a counterpoint to health for traditions that have long since expired.

True, but creating an actually party called "the fascist party" will split the republican base clear down the middle and pretty much guarantee both houses and the presidency to be blue.

Is she following Trump? I don't care if she's an actual Nazi, if it splits the Republicans in half, she can be the reincarnation of Ilsa Goebbels for all I care.

I don't want her to appeal to Democrats or centrists. I want her to fragment the GQP. I don't want her on OUR side, I just don't want her on THEIRS.

How many Republicans are going to commit career suicide by publicly agreeing with her?  Unless they have a book to sell after they retire from office to spend more time with their families (consulting "jobs"), who cares what they believe?  They're all going to bend the knee every single time they're made to, and nothing will change.

made it a point to show just how shiatty Trump was back then. I'm pretty sure they also broke the story of how Trump committed battery on Ivana, and that he raped her as well.

Cheney, who vowed to campaign against election-denying candidates in the November election, declared that if Trump becomes the 2024 GOP presidential nominee, then "I won't be a Republican."

Good, become a Conservative, Compassionate Democrat. We need some and we already have the Compassionate part down. There is no such thing as a Conservative Republican anymore. Only a Cheney could go to the Left with some legitimacy.

I've voted for enough moderate Democrats to know that moderate Democrats only get us policy that Gohmert and Boebert support. Hence why I'm saying we need moderate Democrats to start allying left instead of right, because so long as there is almost zero daylight between moderate Democrats and fascist Nazis nothing is going to get better and the country is going to fail. Don't like that, tough, that's reality so deal with it.

Cheney also called out Trump's refusal on January 6 to make a public statement urging the mob to end the attack until more than three hours had gone by, ignoring urgent entreaties from leaders in Congress, who she said "were begging him, 'Please, tell the mob to go home.' " She then posed a question directly to the audience: "Just set the politics aside for a minute and think to yourself, 'What kind of human being does that?'


She's right. What kind of monster would knowingly let people be in danger for their lives over the course of several hours and do nothing?

You say you're for X then your other words indicate Y.

All you do is attack everyone for being Nazi-enablers while indicating you have no intention of actually voting AGAINST Nazis, thus handing them more power.Makes so much sense.  Genius.

Does it matter if a majority of Republicans aren't Deplorables? It takes a majority of voters to get people elected, and if a Republican politician wants to get elected, they need the Deplorables behind them.

The left, even much of the 'fringe' left, will support a 'reasonable' Democrat, but will the right, particularly the 'fringe' right, support a 'reasonable' Republican candidate? We don't know yet.

100% of Republicans are nazis. This applies equally to Republican voters and Republican elected officials. There are zero non-deplorable Republicans. As to the second part, much of the left won't do anything of the sort. More to the point, neither will people who aren't fascists and who need some kind of help. Those people don't vote at all in many cases. Being a fascist won't get them on board, cozying up to fascists won't get them on board, talking about how the other party are fascists won't get them on board. Doing things that help them* will get them on board.


*And I do mean help them. Talking about what Democrats have (supposedly) done for trans people (for instance) isn't going to get Democrats many new voters, because most Americans aren't trans and care less about us than they do about the way their paychecks aren't enough to pay the rent and also eat, or about the recurring chest pains they can't afford to see a doctor about, or that they can't vote anyway because they have to work and the nearest polling place is an hour away and has a 6 hour line out front.

Liz Cheney is a republican all the way through. But she is smart enough to know how to frame her thoughts and ideas to get them acted on and when to compromise. which is what our government is designed around. When one side has an overwhelming advantage and refuses to even entertain the ideas from the opposing side is when things get wonky. And when power gets reversed, as it is wont to do, the previous regime will howl like banshees that they are being treated unfair because their ideas don't get acted on - mostly because their ideas suck.It's all about give and take, and would make the country run much smoother if we could make that happen consistently no matter which side was on top. That being said, I still don't like her. Although I'd go a round or two with her between the sheets if the chance ever arose.

GHW Bush couldn't keep Patrick Buchanan from turning his second GOP convention into a crossburning party.  But he certainly didn't appear to engage in anything remotely like a violent insurrection (just don't look to closely into voter intimidation).  Rule of law was mostly kept (with the law being an ass as he legally pardoned some of the most disgusting American criminals ever in Iran-Contra).

The GOP was already crazy right wing under GHW Bush, even if he wasn't.  And his control on fascism wasn't all that strong.  And when it came down to basic humanity, Bush would rather see you machine gunned than not.
