..And she's going to win. :sick:

I can't even imagine the kind of electorate that would go ahead and vote for that nasty piece of work. :blackeye:

Liz Cheney appears to be on her way to Congress
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show ... _fb_maddow
Incumbent Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R), who has served as Wyoming’s sole representative for the last eight years, is stepping down at the end of this Congress. There was a large GOP primary field, which Cheney ended up leading with relative ease.

Yesterday’s results don’t guarantee Cheney’s place in Congress, but given Wyoming’s status as a ruby-red state, it’s widely assumed that the winner of the Republican primary is well positioned to win the U.S. House seat in the fall.

What’s especially notable about Cheney’s victory is the degree to which the former Fox News pundit and State Department official had to undo the damage done by her last congressional bid.


"[Moderate] doesn't mean you don't have views. It just means your views aren't predictable ideologically one way or the other, and you're trying to follow the facts where they lead and reach your own conclusions."

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

I guess we can take heart in knowing that there is gender-equal opportunity for nepotistic, warmongering, paranoid psychopaths in the US House of Representatives.
