"Wyoming Miscellany" from Public Policy Polling, July 24, 2013.
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.

So obviously tonight’s show is gonna rock your socks!
Don’t forget to send The Legitimate Conservative some questions!

Bless Wyoming arrest reports from Riverton, Wyo.
When I was doing stand-up in Colorado, people thought I was exaggerating Wyoming fuckery to be funny. Nope. Please see above.
tl;dr version: Meth is a hell of a drug.
And no journalistic fucks were given that day.
We had a fence. Then the wind was all like “LOL NOPE” (at Casa del Andrew y Meg)
Refusing to hand Obama a success, Wyoming leaders refused to extend unemployment benefits, run our own health exchange, or expand help for sick, poor people.
Kerry Drake’s brilliant column in WyoFile. Drake is also the editor of The Casper Citizen, a non-profit, community newspaper.
Hint: It costs Wyoming a hell of a lot.
Why do you want to leave Wyoming, Meg?
Oh, I don’t know, THIS. Y’know, that I’m not shocked AT ALL someone would make this comment to a member of the press working for the local NPR affiliate, or make a similar comment to the governor’s staff about Mexicans. As someone who’s freelanced in Wyoming for a decade, this happens all the time, especially when discussing the Wind River Reservation.
All the high-fives for those calling this crap out, especially J at the bottom.
Spotted this today on a guy’s backpack. He used to work for the public libraries in and around Rock Springs, Wyo. (at South Express Shuttle Stop).
Submitted by hellowearytravelr, who writes, “Based on all information made available to the public, I have created a composite of what I believe your anons look like behind the greyface.”
It’s just… so… ACCURATE.
I shall distribute this immediately!
Gusts of 52 mph and sustained winds of 38 mph? Today is full of NOPE in Wyoming (at Casa del Andrew y Meg)
Winter’s angry butthole unleashes once more upon Wyoming and Colorado.
As one of my dear followers said, I handle haters better than the weather. True facts, y’all.
This is not Spring. This is Winter II.
