Oh Hell, Liz Cheney's Running For Congress


Note: The Bill Maher 2012 video above contains expletives. Because we need them for this one.

Just when you thought it was safe to come out for the weekend. AP reports:

The elder daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is running for Congress.

Campaign officials say she plans to formally announce Monday in Gillette, Wyoming. Cheney couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

She's busy, polishing her resume. You know, the "former State Department official" title that gave her unlimited shopping opportunities in Dubai and a permanent seat as a Fox News (and let's face it, ABC This Week) "foreign policy" panelist?

The good news is:

Cheney faces a field of eight Republican competitors including two experienced Wyoming state legislators.

Let's hope one of them is significant enough for her vile self to lose in the primary.
