Liz Cheney lost in a landslide yesterday.
Liz Cheney told the truth and the QOP fired her for doing so. The current QOP is a party of liars, cheats, and anti-democracy thugs.
The Grand Old Party is officially dead as there is no intelligence left and is now the Trumpublian Party, defined by conspiracies, victimhood, and fear of “the other,” and a foreign policy which supports other anti-democratic authoritarians.
IMO, our republic is in mortal danger. President Biden, as an opening move, should appoint her immediately to replace Joseph Cuffari, the DHS Inspector General who has refused to comply with Congressional demands that he turn over the records of his search for the Secret Service texts of Jan 5-6, 2021, and to allow people in his office to testify. Give Liz the power and the tools to root out the neo-fascist 5th columnists in the federal government, and let her go to work.
Wyoming is a beautiful, scenic state, but it is too small (population-wise) to be of much significance. Liz Cheney knew she would lose. So did everyone else. Her next chapter is up to her, and it is cloudy. She’s too conservative to be a Democrat and is now a pariah among most Republicans.
What happens next is up to her.
However, the destruction of the Republican Party is now nearly complete.
THE LINCOLN PROJECT STATEMENT ON LIZ CHENEY’S PRIMARY LOSS
August 16, 2022 — The Lincoln Project releases the following statement on the primary loss of Liz Cheney:
“Tonight, the nation marks the end of the Republican Party. What remains shares the name and branding of the traditional GOP, but is in fact an authoritarian nationalist cult dedicated only to Donald Trump.
“Liz Cheney stood up to the lawless, reckless attack on our nation led by Donald Trump and millions of Americans saw leadership that transcended ideological boundaries. For standing up to Donald Trump and working to hold accountable those responsible for his violent insurrection, Liz Cheney risked and lost her political career as a Republican.
“The Wyoming GOP, supported by millions of corporate dollars from Kevin McCarthy, nominated a reality-denying conspiracy theorist who promotes the “Big Lie” and bends a knee to Donald Trump.
“Liz Cheney showed America what a dedicated public servant driven by principle is like; it’s no wonder today’s GOP hates her. She remains an essential leader of the pro-democracy forces in the United States today and we encourage her to continue to engage in the fight to save our Republic and protect our democracy.
“The way she fought this race has only increased her stature among people setting aside their partisan differences to fight for democracy. We thank her for her service, and look forward to seeing her next chapter. America needs her and more people like her.”
