What has startled some people here is not just the fact that Ms. Cheney is seemingly trying to nudge Mr. Enzi into retirement, but that she appears to be doing so with a hand from her father.

This is what being friends with Dick Cheney buys you after 40 years.

At least he didn’t shoot him. Bang!

Enzi is what sadly passes for a “moderate” nowadays. Would she run to the right of him or the left? (I assume the right given her recent history of hateful vitriol - edited because I had her confused with Mary)

If you’re talking about the lesbian daughter, that is the younger one, Mary. Liz is just like her daddy—maybe worse.

All Republicans in office who are being challenged are being challenged from the far right. There’s no longer any place in the GOP for anyone who has even the slightest intention of governing until the far right controls all the branches of government.

And hopefully that never happens.

Liz Cheney is a very nasty piece of work. She doesn’t care that Enzi isn’t ready to retire. She thinks she deserves the seat. Simpson is correct, a challenge from a far right creature like Liz Cheney would start a GOP civil war in Wyoming, but it most likely wouldn’t bother either Liz or Dick Cheney. They don’t mind offending anyone or stepping on anyone’s toes as long as they get what they want, and they want Liz Cheney in the Senate where she will assist the current crop of republicans in finishing off the middle and lower classes.

And this is yet another reason why Republicans are called the Stupid Party.

Draft-dodging chickenhawk Dick Cheney has been in the thick of three failed Republican administrations (Ford and two Bushes), and the party treats him like Moses.

In the middle of an undistinguished career as a DC hack, his daughter desires better seating at Washington dinner parties. She decides she’s entitled to be Senator for an agrarian Mountain state to which she has at most a tenuous connection. And a significant part of the GOP base obediently salivates and cheers.

Whether or not the Cheneys manage to force Enzi out, stunts like this demonstrate that the “rebranded” GOP remains a hypocritical clown show.
