Liz Cheney is an Idiot

At first I thought the issue was just Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-MT-AL) personal loathing of President Donald Trump (R-USA). But now I realize that she’s a complete idiot and has no political instincts whatsoever. With qualifications like that, it’s no wonder she’s in Republican Party Leadership.

Liz Cheney Says Republicans Need To Make It Clear That 'We Aren't The Party Of White Supremacy' (lifezette.com)

Representative Liz Cheney (R- WY), who is one of the Republicans that voted to impeach former President Donald Trump during his last impeachment trial, spoke out at a Reagan Institute event on Tuesday to say that the Republican party needs to “make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy” in the wake of last month’s Capitol riots.

No. They don’t. No, no, no, no, no, a thousand times no.

The GOP has made that clear for decades. Repeating a Democratic Party talking point as if it’s true can only harm the party. What the Republican Party needs to do is to ignore these baseless allegations, and prove that they’re the party of all Americans, and in particular those of us who work for a living and who are often living paycheck-to-paycheck.

“Certainly the potential of a 9/11-style commission, I think that is very important,” Cheney said. “I think there are many aspects of what happened on the 6th and in the days and weeks and months leading up to it that have to be investigated.”

“It’s very important, especially for us as Republicans, to make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy,” she added. “You certainly saw anti-Semitism. You saw the symbols of Holocaust denial, for example, at the Capitol that day. You saw a Confederate flag being carried through the Rotunda. And I think we as Republicans, in particular, have a duty and an obligation to stand against that, to stand against insurrection.”

Oh God. She backs a commission to investigate the January 6th “riot”. I would say that she’s actually playing for the other team, but I’m reminded of Hanlon’s razor.

[N]ever attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

So, let’s just go with stupid.
