The popcorn is hot and buttery. Time for the feature to begin. It's a comedy/horror story about a cursed society of mostly entitled white vampire men who kneel at the altar of a twisted Orange God and suck the blood ort of those among them who have lost the Faith. On this occasion it is the aging yet still powerful daughter of one of their former High Priests who has, as of late, started a blasphemous yet torrid affair with the Truth. At the end, an enraged mob of villagers wearing MAGA hats carrying torches and pitchforks is seen marching toward a big white building with a dome, chanting 'They Will Not Replace Us.'

She should give the GQP the finger, and start voting with the Dems.
That would be some serious "hard ball", and teach them a lesson.

They would come groveling back for her vote.

Prior to 2017, the Cheney name was synonymous with 'rock-ribbed Republican'. Now it appears to mean something else. Too bad that Barry Goldwater isn't around to stand lock-jawed on the floor of the Senate and loudly call out those who have so odiously debased their party. The saddest part of Trump's defilement of the GOP is the cowardice and hypocrisy that was exposed...

If Cheney loses in the repub primary, she should run as an independent and help throw the election to a dem. Now THAT would get their attention.

Posted this on the nooner:

BTW, It's official. You can't be a Republican unless you:

  • Believe The Lie
  • Pretend to believe The Lie
  • Promulgate The Lie.
  • Are a Liar.

  • Gotta Output Propaganda!

    What's that about cancel culture GQP? They're cancelling Liz Cheney, perhaps the most conservative member of their caucus for not accepting the truth and speaking out against a traitor to this country? Despicable!

    @#6 ... Despicable! ...

    Ask the Republican base what they think of this, and you will hear different words. Words that may surprise you.

    "Purging" Liz Cheney? Is it possible that they mean 'canceling'?
