Liz Cheney Political Career Post Mortem

Versus, I don't know, just voting for the Dem?  

 

There’s typically a bunch of others on the ballot as well.  But effectively it would provide a third sort of mainstream option - D, R, Liz Cheney (I’m discounting the commies, the socialists, the libertarians, the greens, etc., because they’re usually in the mix and their effect on outcomes is basically stable year over year).  

 

The idea is that Rs who aren’t inclined to vote for Trump but who will not vote for a D cast a protest vote for Cheney.  Get enough protest votes—say, about 10,000 of them in Georgia, for example—and it might be enough to give the D a plurality in a given jurisdiction.  It is a tried and true tactic.  Not to say it always works.  But it’s a reasonable approach to this type of election.

Hmm, phantom DR has chosen to ignore content from Tiberius, yet he tags and responds to that very same Tiberius a couple hours later. 
 

I don't think the ignore option stays permanent, you can turn it off and on whenever you feel like it.

That’s what I’m talking about.  We need a ringer to keep the Orange d-bag out of the way.  Hopefully she can peel just enough votes to keep this scumbag in Mar a Lago or Club Fed or wherever he might be in two years.  (I note the potential downside is that she brings an unexpected number of Democratic votes if the economy is in rough shape by then.  But I’d take the risk.)

Hoax

For those of you who actually believe Cheney lost because of her position on Trump I'd enjoy seeing your analysis of Kemp's landslide win in Georgia earlier this year. 

 

The reality is that Liz Cheney lost this seat before she joined the House Select Committee. The polling data says as much. She was never as popular as her predecessor who now serves in the Senate. And while people like to point to how often she voted the conservative position, that changed a bit in the last year as she voted for, among others, the gun control bill, the CHIPS Act, and unlimited money for the crackpot in Ukraine.

 

Her position on Jan 6 isn't what did her in. It was her singular focus on helping conduct public show trials over what her constituents actually cared about. That'll get you every time.

 

As an end note, if you're a leftist who has helped to sanitize the Cheney name over the last year I think you have some real soul-searching to do.

Sheep can't vote this year. More sheep than humans in WY.

It may be time to bump the Flynndicated thread again?

I think so.  Especially since Flynn will be “flynndicated” any day now.  Hoax (as to the second sentence).

And then those who voted for Cheney will B word and moan at the Dem President's terrible policies.  Brilliance!

And they would B more if they voted for the Don in 2024.

Seems like the only thing the current GOP voters want in an office holder is to get someone in office who gonna genuflect to DT. You don’t even mention who won or what resources she brings to the Senate. 

Wrong…the end
