Good morning, Crooks and Liars. Tengrain here. What a couple of weeks we've had, and we wonder what's on tap for this week, so let's get started!

Policy Bear gives us the dossier of Liz Cheney, the most famous Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in our nation's history, who might be running for the Senate.

Bay Area Houston has the leaked, first draft of Texas Governor Goodhair's plans for his political future.

Margaret and Helen have an ingenious plan to keep control of their bodies from Rick Perry and John Kasich.

Bonus track: Padre Mickey's Dance Party instructs us on the Feast of St. Independence.
