Liz Cheney Accepts Early Defeat in Wyoming


If Liz Cheney can't get a competitive edge in a Senate primary in Wyoming, then this country is well on its way to recovering from the Bush years.

This defeat for the Cheney family represents the sanest thing that has happened in politics in a year or more. It should wake people up to the fact that going to the hard right on social issues is an electoral loser and that the Cheney brand has been tarnished just enough to give Americans the break they deserve.

Of course, Liz Cheney is now free to run for elected office in Virginia, but, what are you going to do?
