Failed “Wyoming” Senatorial candidate Liz Cheney has triumphantly returned to her previous job as a Fox News contributor, proving that government assistance to the unemployed is not needed when you’re a friend of the conservative mediaplex. After a spectacularly unsuccessful challenge to incumbent Sen. Mike Enzi, Cheney ended her campaign in January, citing unspecified “serious […]

It’s been about ten seconds since we had some nonsense person declare that he’s a salt of the earth man o’ the people tax-hatin’ rootin-tootin’ kinda guy, so let’s meet Ben Sasse. Mr. Sasse is running for Senate in corn-fed Nebraska, and he has a super smart idea we’re sure you’ll all dig: In a […]

Shut it down, people. The 2014 midterms just got a lot less interesting as psychotic swamp beast Liz Cheney emerged from her Sith Meditation Pod and announced she is ending her bid for the Senate seat from Wyoming, citing unspecified “serious health issues” in her family. This was followed by a tortured howl of misery […]

Oh 2013, how we will miss you and your multitudes of bad analogies, even though we are pretty sure 2014 will bring us even more bad analogies, because America is awful and Americans are awful, and it is now standard practice to compare anything you do not like to really bad stuff and/or really bad […]

Wyoming’s Own Liz Cheney is very from Wyoming, and probably so is her husband Phil Perry, who “continues to practice law in Washington,” and “has been registered to vote in both Virginia and Wyoming for the past nine months, even though he signed a document in Wyoming saying he was not registered elsewhere,” which is such […]

Today on “Fun With Grammar,” let’s take a look at an old favorite, the political passive voice. The great thing about the passive voice, as we all know, is that you can say stuff happened without actually saying who did that stuff, the classic example being “Mistakes were made.” And now, here’s everyone’s favorite kitten-chomper […]

In this new campaign ad, creatively titled “Daughters,” Liz Cheney’s daughters talk about their family’s “deep roots” in the state that their mother left during junior high school and returned to last year to run for Senate. She is totally a Wyoming … what is the word you people say… “gal.” Through and through. Her […]

In what has to be the teensiest ittle-bitty political shocker of the year, Mary Cheney emailed Politico to say that she doesn’t intend to support her sister Liz Cheney’s campaign for the U.S. Senate in whichever western state Liz decided was her “home” last year: “I’m not supporting Liz’s candidacy.” She later clarified: “By supporting, […]

Senate candidate and purported Wyoming resident Liz Cheney restated on Fox News Sunday that she is a big fan of “the traditional definition of marriage,” which is the bestest definition of marriage there ever was. In response, Cheney’s sister Mary and her wife Heather Poe reminded Liz of their existence, gently pointing out that Liz […]

Recent polls suggest that Dick Cheney spawn “Liz” might be having a bit of a rough ride in her battle to seize fellow Republican Mike Enzi’s Senate seat for herself, like any self-respecting dictator’s daughter would do. Like a 53-point-gap rough ride. (Ooooh, that smarts.) So Liz has done a Smart Thing, and that is […]

Dick Cheney surfaced from the cthonian depths this weekend to put to rest any notion that he has ever been Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi’s fishing buddy. Enzi, still smarting from Liz Cheney’s decision to run against him in the Republican primary, had told the Daily Beast last week that he’d thought the former vice president […]

Remember all the good times we used to have listening to the gentle murmurs emanating from lips of the nation’s kindly grandma, Barbara Bush, who was oh so very kind? What a treasure she was, calling people bitches and congratulating Katrina refugees on their good fortune in being homeless in Houston, and just generally being […]

In a speech to a crowd of 150 Tea Party supporters Tuesday, senate candidate Liz Cheney said she did not support airstrikes on Syria because President Obama has not adequately defined goals for the potential intervention, and because she believes Obama should have supported Syrian rebels before anti-Assad forces included “Islamist radicals.” This is an […]

Wyoming sure seems like a nice place. Lots of open space and fresh air — and a real nice Republican Senate primary about who hates gays the very most. Sen. Mike Enzi says HE hates gays the most and Liz Cheney loooooooooooves them so much she should marry them (but not in a gay way, […]

Hey, remember how Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sounded sort of pathetic and sad when he found out that hot young MMA fighter Liz Cheney was planning to primary his ass next year? He said he just didn’t understand how she could do that, seeing as how she’d promised not to challenge him if he ran […]
