Letter: The GOP needs Liz Cheney
"I hope the Republican Party can come out of it's Trump-induced coma and realize that Liz Cheney and others like her are needed for the future of the party," writes Milan Knutson of Fargo.
“No good deed goes unpunished.”
That is a saying I have heard several times over the years and I don’t know to whom to attribute it. Google doesn’t seem to know either, but the misinformed knuckle-draggers in Wyoming proved that it can happen.
They have a Congressional Representative who is as conservative as almost anyone except the wing-nuts and she lost the primary to a Trump pick because she had the courage and integrity to put her country ahead of herself. That is rare in politics today.
I hope the Republican Party can come out of it's Trump-induced coma and realize that Liz Cheney and others like her are needed for the future of the party. That may be way too much to ask for.
As long as I am offending those on the far-right, I will add that I am thankful for the Department of Justice and the FBI just as I am thankful for the Fargo Police Department and all other law enforcement agencies across the county. The raid on Mar-a-Lago was not a shoot-from-the-hip decision. Trump failed to comply with previous efforts to retrieve the documents (that were not his to keep) and the American concept that no one is above the law forced the unprecedented action. It's a bit smug to say, but this could not happen to a nicer guy.
