You can’t possibly be as tired as I am at listening to and watching the media push Rep. Liz Cheney around like a woman in the center of a dodge ball game. As she becomes the only one left standing, she’s clearly not the winner, and it’s annoying and could be destructive to the Republican Party’s future.
Cheney is apparently prepared to play this fiddle as long as she can. She seems enraptured by The Big Lie, and every time the media asks her about it, she continues to embarrass herself. And I can’t figure out what she is trying to accomplish.
Is she determined to win this verbal/media war with Trump, at the risk of alienating her colleagues in the House?
Is she willing to be removed from leadership the Republican Conference Chair as the price she will pay?
Does she really think she’s being “picked on” because she voted for Trump’s impeachment? (So did 10 other Republicans, some in leadership positions, and none of them were penalized.)
Does she think that any publicity, good or bad, is worth her efforts?
Do you think she’s preparing for a Presidential run in 2024?
Or has she become so obsessed with Trump that she has simply lost her mind?
Meanwhile, her actions are being promoted by the media that like to say the Republican caucus is in chaos.
It’s not. So will the impact of her stand be forgotten in a couple of weeks?
Or could she be doing some serious damage?
It’s time to get on board, Liz, or step down while you still have an ounce of dignity.Published in
