Cheney lost on her own

Liz Cheney not only lost her primary election contest but she also destroyed her career in the process.

Only 2 short years ago, this politician won her Wyoming primary with 73% of the vote and on Tuesday, the 16th, she was beaten by almost 40%.

How could this happen? Did Donald Trump do this to her? No, it was self-inflicted. She became obsessed w/ exacting revenge on Trump for disparaging her dad, Dick, and George Bush because of their endless foreign wars.

She ignored her state’s constituents while she went on her “Don Quixote” mission and sided with the never Trumpers during the Democratic “show trial” in the House. Liz could have had a “town hall” meeting and asked her audience what were the most important concerns they had. I would bet my paycheck that January 6th would not have been in the top ten and would certainly have been down the list from crime, illegal aliens, the border crisis, inflation, gas prices, the Afghanistan fiasco, etc. How could she have had such a “tin ear” when it came to representing her state? I don’t understand her stupidity but maybe Longfellow hit the “nail on the head” when he wrote “Whom the gods would destroy, they first make them mad (crazy)”.
