Liz Cheney Unveils Her Hit List

After getting her derriere handed to her last week during Wyoming’s primary election, Rep. Liz Cheney is embarking on a new mission. You probably don’t even need to look it up to find out. She plans to ramp up her Orange Man Bad campaign to prevent former President Donald Trump from becoming president again in 2024. But she’s not stopping there. She also plans to target other politicians she deems to be too Trumpy.

Cheney is launching a brand spanking new political action committee called “The Great Task.” This group will work to oust Republicans who have questioned the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. She announced the creation of the PAC the day after her devastating loss to Harriet Hageman, who had Trump’s endorsement.

During an appearance on ABC’sThis Week” on Sunday, she went on her usual Orange Man Bad rant.

“We really have got to decide whether or not we’re going to be a party based on substance and policy or whether we’re going to remain, as so many of our party are today, in the grips of a dangerous former president,” she said. “Donald Trump is certainly the center of the threat, but election denial, denying the fundamental function and principle at the center of our constitutional republic, is dangerous broadly speaking. And he is certainly leading that effort and leading that movement.”

She then went on to list off the Republican candidates she is targeting. When asked about her plans to oppose GOP politicians who cast doubt on the fairness of the election, she said:

When you look at somebody like Josh Hawley or somebody like Ted Cruz, both of whom know better — both of whom know exactly what the role of Congress is in terms of our constitutional obligations with respect to presidential elections — and yet, both of whom took steps that fundamentally threatened the constitutional order and structure in the aftermath of the last election.

So, in my view, they both have made themselves unfit for future office.

Cheney also took a shot at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has not yet made his opinion on the election clear.

“DeSantis is somebody who is, right now, campaigning for election deniers. And I think that, you know, that is something that I think people have got to have real pause about,” she said. “You know, either you fundamentally believe in and will support our constitutional structure, or you don’t.”

In the words of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, “Only a Sith deals in absolutes.”

Darth Cheney also indicated she has not yet made a decision about possibly running for president in 2024. When the host noted that the Republican National Committee is “trying to figure out ways to keep you out,” she responded: “I can understand why they would not want me on a debate stage with Donald Trump, and I would imagine Donald Trump isn’t too interested in that either.”

Yeah, sure Liz.

The soon-to-be former lawmaker has been at the forefront of the anti-Trump movement ever since the riot at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021. Unlike others who voted to impeach Trump after he was already out of office, Cheney has made her entire focus about attacking Trump. As a member of the Democrats’ House Select Jan. 6 committee, she has talked about little else other than the Orange Man What Is Bad™.

In fact, she almost completely stopped addressing the issues her constituents are facing. Instead of discussing the economy, inflation, crime, education, and other matters that people are actually concerned about, her attention was on Trump and Trump alone. This is one of the reasons she lost. Nevertheless, Cheney is persisting in propagating her anti-Trump grift. The question is: Will it have much of an impact?
