Fun how democracy works, innit?

Liz Cheney has paid the price for her staunch opposition to Donald Trump’s assault on American democracy by losing her seat in Congress to a challenger backed by the former president.

The people might not say what they’re supposed to say.

  1. Ha, excellent, Queen of the Rinos gets it good and hard.
    She has brought this all on herself.
    And her dad is a War Criminal.

  2. Widely predicted by opinion polls, the result continues a winning streak for Trump-endorsed candidates and deals a blow to the last vestiges of the Republican party establishment.

    Trump is finished I tell ya!

    She was praised by Democrats and independents

    This should be the death-knell for any Republican politician.

    “Our nation is barrelling once again towards crisis, lawlessness and violence,”

    Anyone else remember those ‘mostly peaceful’ riots in 2020?

    Critics of the ex-president declared Cheney the moral victor. The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump group formed by disaffected conservatives, said: “Tonight, the nation marks the end of the Republican party.

    Lol, ok groomers. Goodbye and good riddance.

  3. Cheney continued: “No House seat, no office in this land is more important than the principles that we are all sworn to protect

    Sure, Jan.

  4. That’s ok though – according to her WY was ‘too small’. Obviously she has a greater destiny on the national stage. “Cheney 2024 – haven’t we done this twice before!”

  5. Dennis, Pointing Out The Obvious

    This from the deep-thinking Richard Murphy:

    I worry about politics. In the US yesterday, a pro-Trump candidate defeated the pretty far-right US Senator Liz Cheney in the Republican primary for Wyoming, meaning that Cheney, whose crime has been to criticise Trump over the storming of the Capitol on 6 January 2021., will lose her seat. Supporting insurrection and the violent overthrow of government now has widespread support in the USA.

    1) Cheney isn’t a senator. She is a member of the House of Representatives.
    2) She didn’t lose her district’s Republican primary by 37 points because she criticized Donald Trump. She lost because the constituents came to the conclusion that she was not representing their interests.
    3) Cheney isn’t anyone’s idea of “far-right”. She’s an establishment RINO, just like her daddy.
    3) Well, if you support organizations such as Antifa, BLM, ShutDownDC and Ruth Sent Us, then yes, you’re supporting insurrection and political violence.

  6. Dennis, On The Cutting Edge of Culture and Fashion

    It seems like I ought to – but I don’t get it.

    It’s a Brady Bunch meme.

    Fact: If I know a popular culture reference and you don’t, you are really, really out of it.

    I’m your cultural canary in a coalmine.

  7. “Donald Trump’s assault on democracy” was, of course, that he won an election.

    Translated from Dem-speak for you.

  8. You know Liz is a bit off mentally, because she’s been banking on all the support she’s been getting for the anti-Trump stuff and January 6 hoopla. Of course, all of that support came from the left, and they never actually liked Liz. They simply used her as a pawn so they could say, “This is one of the few ‘good’ republicans.” It’s not like they voted for her, or even knew what her policies were. They likely didn’t even realize how often she voted for Trump’s policies. All they did was give her less grief and refrain from calling her a “Nazi.”

    Lately, the left has even been encouraging republicans to vote for Trump-endorsed candidates in the primaries, because they think those candidates will lose in their general elections. There’s no sense of supporting or eschewing political platforms, because it’s just a game for them. They just want to win, that’s all. So, while Liz enjoyed all the media accolades, she’s now served her purpose. Within 24 hours her legacy will be forgotten, and the left will still be happy because they got rid of a republican, and made her agree with them on her way out. Hageman has a good chance of taking her place, but the left is stuck in their fantasy world where Wyoming can turn blue.

    By the way, keep in mind that Wyoming is the least populated state in the country, which makes Liz’s loss that much more embarrassing. She’s now hinting at a presidential run after losing by 37 points in that state to a (let’s be honest) scary-looking challenger. Delusional at best.

    Right now, Liz is thinking that all of those phony liberals who showed up to her rallies are going to carry over to whatever future campaigns or organizations she decides to run. NOPE! They’ve already moved on to the next thing, likely another RINO to boot out or another potential squad member to supplement AOC and Omar.

    This is literally how they operate with every RINO they can get their hands on. Mitt Romney could’ve had the same fate, but he’s smart enough to be less outspoken and is a bit more strategic with the battles he chooses to fight. He’s up for re-election in 2025, and Utah is slightly less conservative than Wyoming (the Sundance Film Festival is held there), so we’ll see if anything changes by then.

    The interesting thing to keep an eye on is the Squad. The left has recently begun to see how ineffective they are (took them long enough), but many are still not aware, and some will continue to vote for these idiots simply because there’s no competent alternative. They certainly aren’t going to start voting republican. And whatever shithole districts the Squad is running, they have the luxury of blaming the policies of their predecessors. Pelosi and Waters have survived for decades using that excuse, so don’t expect the Bronx or Minneapolis to improve anytime soon.

  9. From Politico:
    Liz Cheney already has her next move in mind following her defeat in yesterday’s primary.

    She’ll be launching an org “to mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president,” her spokesperson told Playbook exclusively.

    So in other words she’s trying the Lincoln Project scam. “Please send me lots of money so I can stop the nasty Orange Man Bad”
