The left has hated Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, for years. Some still do and are furious that the liberals have now embraced her. But those who are embracing her only care about her because she is obsessed with President Donald Trump.
So, it’s pretty hilarious the nonsense that liberals are pushing about her right now. As we reported, she just got an endorsement from disgraced former senator, Al Franken. That’s funny, but now there are two tweets from liberals that are in tough competition with each other for the dumbest tweets about Cheney this week.
First, there’s the Former National Finance Chair of Draft Biden 2016, Jon Cooper.
If Liz Cheney loses her primary election on Tuesday, the Republican Party will never recover.

According to him, “If Liz Cheney loses her primary election on Tuesday, the Republican Party will never recover.”
Now, that’s some serious delusion.
Booting Liz Cheney is one of the ways that the Republican Party will truly recover — putting the concerns of the people of Wyoming first over her obsession–and not throwing in with the destructive actions of the Democrats that have so harmed the country, which she did. Not only will we be in much better shape without her, but we’re also counting down the days until the party on Tuesday. Then she can go back to living in Virginia and stop pretending she cares about Wyoming. She’s down by thirty points, and folks in Wyoming truly despise her. The chances of her winning are close to zero and none at this point.
When a rabid liberal Democrat like Jon Cooper is pleading for people to vote for Liz, you know that’s just one more reason not to vote for her.
But Cooper has a serious challenge on the delusion scale from Associate Editor of the Washington Post, Jonathan Capehart.
Liz Cheney’s looming primary defeat will make her more powerful than Trump can imagine. https://t.co/oe3pXAR2BT

Capehart seems to acknowledge the reality that Cheney is going to lose in the primary, but he argues that’s a good thing for her, that it will somehow make her more powerful. “Liz Cheney’s looming primary defeat will make her more powerful than Trump can imagine,” Capehart declared, linking to his story where he compared Cheney to Obi-Wan and Trump to Darth Vader.
Kenobi and Vader are monologuing over the crackle of their clashing weapons when Kenobi declares, “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” Then, in an act of self-sacrifice he hopes will hasten the destruction of the evil Empire, Kenobi allows Vader to do just that.
Capehart acknowledges that it’s been Dick Cheney that the left has termed as Darth Vader, but, hey, who cares if his analogy is reversed? Work with him, people!
A version of this battle is playing out in real life with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) as Kenobi and former president Donald Trump as Vader. Now, I realize that Cheney’s father, former vice president Dick Cheney, has traditionally been known as Darth Vader, what with the Iraq War and “enhanced interrogation” techniques and all that. But work with me, people.
Now, this is just ridiculous. The left only cares about her in terms of how she can help them get Trump. Once she is no longer of any use to them, they will toss her aside like an old dish rag. That’s how much “power” she will have. This is the pitch that somehow she will run for president. On what platform? With what constituency? She can’t even hold onto Wyoming. Democrats aren’t going to vote for her — they’re going to vote for Democrats.
We already saw how the Democrats redistricted her fellow turncoat Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) out of his job. Democrats also supported Trump-endorsed John Gibbs in the Michigan GOP primary because they thought he’d be easier to beat than the guy they claimed had “principles” and voted for impeachment, Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI). They will toss anyone who has helped their narrative under the bus if it serves their purposes of holding onto power. If Liz Cheney truly thinks that any of these folks will be lining up for her, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell her.
