Waiting In The Wingnuts

Jeb Bush’s campaign sputters along — he’s pulling 2% in Iowa, maybe 6% in New Hampshire — and I think it’s safe to say that we’re done with this generation of Bushes running the country.

But wait, what’s this?  Liz Cheney, last heard from in 2013 when she tried and failed to primary Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY), is making plans to run for Congress from Wyoming.  Yip yah.

My guess is that she’s going to win since Wyoming has but one seat in Congress (and it’s a seat her father once held) and the representative she’s seeking to replace is a stalwart of the Freedom Caucus, aka the Bug-Eyed Right-Wing Nutsery Coalition.

So the daughter of the worst vice president in history — and when you are counting among that group Spiro Agnew and Dan Quayle that’s saying something — is going to be in a position where she thinks she’ll have a launching pad to bigger and better things.
