Liz Cheney Just Got the Endorsement She Needs (Try Not to Laugh Too Hard) – Opinion


As we’ve reported, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is in deep trouble in her primary on August 16. She’s 30 points behind her Trump-endorsed challenger, Harriet Hageman. She’s about to get wiped out by historic proportions, by all accounts.


However, she has some Democrats trying to defend her actions. She just got an endorsement that’s sure to put her over the top now — disgraced former Democratic senator Al Franken.



I’ll leave the door open to the possibility that this is an attempt at comedy since that’s what Franken is allegedly doing now, since the groping scandal and leaving the Senate. Franken isn’t going to endorse Cheney. It would bring Hageman to Wyoming if it did have any impact. But it’s like adding one more thing on the list of why not to vote for Cheney.




Cheney’s Democratic buddies are already trying to pull out an excuse for her loss, but more to try to taint Republicans. It’s because of the threats that she couldn’t campaign, according to Democratic operative David Axelrod.


Are they using that excuse to disregard Republican town halls, events, and meetings for the last two-years? That is a representative.


But here she is at an event with 10s of people, so so much for Axelrod’s claim. It’s just about trying to demonize Republicans. The picture is funny and shows how many people she has drawn for any reason. Look at the body language — how bored and uninterested those people are.



The guy scratching his beard is great, the two young guys in the checked shirts look like they’d rather be anywhere else.


This is a tweet that she’s putting out and that’s the best she can do to promote herself? Sad attendance and a sad attitude are the two main problems.


But this is where she’s at, at his point. And Franken, notwithstanding, she’s about to be shown the door on Tuesday.
