I suppose I should begin by saying I wish liberals, for the love of all that is good in the world, would just stop.

Stop trying to make Liz Cheney 2024 happen.

As the Republican base raises their standards for their lawmakers and make their expectations clear, Democrats continue to lower theirs. Maybe it’s just me, but given the current political climate that seems like a recipe for disaster. By embracing someone like Liz Cheney with her staunch right wing positions, do liberals not…
