Tomorrow marks an interesting day in the state of Wyoming. Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment well [sic] be held at several different locations around the Casper area. The event begins at noon, August 2nd and begins at I-25 as an “open vehicle” (motorcycles, convertibles, jeeps, etc.) protest that will last until everyone is too tired to perform any longer.
Goddammit, Wyoming. Really? The journalism here AND the protest just kills me…
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — U.S. Senate candidate Liz Cheney and her husband were more than two months late paying property taxes on a $1.6 million home they bought last year in the tony northwest Wyoming community of Jackson Hole, according to Teton County records. The oversight arose when they misunderstood the terms of their purchase of the four-bedroom, four-bath log home with views of the Teton Range, Cheney said Wednesday.
Awesome. Maybe that’s why Liz Cheney is running on “No taxes ever because reasons” as a key plank of her platform.
But this is my favorite part: “Cheney has lived most of her life outside Wyoming but traces her family roots in the state to 1907 settlers and describes herself as a fourth-generation Wyomingite.”

Darth Dick Cheney?
In other words, at least 54% of Wyoming voters have lost their goddamn minds. We also have the highest rate of gun ownership in the country, and, in news shocking no one, Republicans are much more likely than Democrats to own a cowboy hat by an 11-point margin. A confused 1% aren’t sure if they own a cowboy hat or not.
And 75% of voters who cast their ballots for Mitt Romney would accept that hunting invite with Cheney, though 78% of those same voters have a favorable opinion of him. Essentially, 75% of Romney’s base in Wyoming is willing to forgive mistaking your friend’s visage for a covey of quail.
On the flipside, 81% of Barack Obama supporters still remember that one time Cheney shot a dude in the face, neck, and chest with birdshot, and therefore would turn down the invitation.
Americans for Tax Reform’s Grover Norquist on Liz Cheney’s decision to challenge Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo. in the primary. Norquist indicated his organization might support Cheney over Enzi because of Enzi’s support of the internet sales tax.
Cheney’s decision has been met with derision from Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo. who referred to her as a “shiny new pony” and said Cheney’s choice was “bad form”.
Of course, Lummis ALSO had her eyes on the seat as the heir apparent should Enzi step aside, making one wonder if perhaps Lummis is the reason he chose to run again.
Yeah, Grover. We thought that too until she uprooted her family to move them to the luxury ski community of Jackson Hole — nothing says “just like you” like carpetbagging from one of the places where personal wealth is concentrated the most per capita in the U.S.
Spotted on the Facebook profiles of Wyomingites today, circulating among Democrats AND Republicans.
Because I am.
Lummis called Cheney “a shiny new pony” and followed that up by proclaiming that on Wednesdays, Wyoming Republicans wear pink.
I await Cheney’s response.
