From the GOP Leadership: Help Wanted – Non-Threatening Female
Word is out that House GOP Leaders are looking to push Rep. Liz Cheney from her post as House Republican Conference Chair – their most senior woman in GOP leadership – for a litany of very Republican reasons: she won’t lie, she isn’t humble enough, she’s like a girlfriend rooting for the wrong team, and more.
So what exactly are House GOP Leaders looking for in a #3? Punchbowl AM got the scoop and, well, it’s not surprising… they want a woman who isn’t a “threat” to them.
As Michael Gerson, former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, put it in the Washington Post yesterday:
Nothing about this is normal. The GOP is increasingly defined not by its shared beliefs, but by its shared delusions. To be a loyal Republican, one must be either a sucker or a liar…Knowingly repeating a lie – an act of immorality – is now the evidence of Republican fidelity.
