    Nothing could convince me Liz Cheney is a fucking ally because she isn’t. I’m tired of fucking liberals constantly trying to rehabilitate human garbage.

    If your only measure of being an “ally” is not being in favor of a dictatorship, I’m really not sure how your bar could get any fucking lower

    Hopefully he fucks up trying to kill himself and has to live the remainder of his days in agony until they pull the plug. Mind you even that is way to good of a fucking death for him

    Not sure how that would impact those races, or if it would.

    Ryan has been running very hard in red counties, which most Ohio Democrats simply ignore. I’m skeptical, but the guy is literally in a different Ohio county every single day.

    Yesterday was Bucyrus, a town of 11,000 in a county of 45,000 in Jim Jordan’s district. Crawford County has not gone blue since 1964 and went 75-24 Trump in 2020.

    Ryan shows up anyway.

    I think that’s been fettermans approach in pa, only parts of Ohio have demonstrably worse people, or so it appears.

    It’d be pretty depressing to see a strong candidate run a hard race and still lose to a clown like Vance.

    Might be a saturated take on this page…

    but Liz Cheney fucking sucks. She’s a trash human but the centrist media eat it up.

    You need a broad coalition to defeat fascist movements. I don't agree with Cheney on anything but her opinion of Trump and the movement. That's all that really matters atm if the intent is to ensure a fascist or authoritarian isn't elected.

    Hate her and her beliefs (I do), but people like her are needed just like you need single issue voters to turn out to win elections

    You will notice the huge crowd he had in Bucyrus.

    I give Ryan credit for spending a ton of time in the Winter and Spring hitting traditional Democrat heavy parts of the state, particularly rust belt towns that went red in 2016 and 2020. If he loses, it won’t be because he failed to cover his flank there.

    He spent Summer doing the same, but also went really hard in red areas of the state. He spent a ton on Fox advertisements.

    Ryan makes a very nativistic anti-China appeal in his ads. It’s every bit the same shit you see from Trump, with Ryan couching it in terms of Ohio manufacturing.

    JD Vance is nowhere except TV ads. Mike DeWine is running a double digit lead in the Governor race over Dayton mayor Nan Whaley and Vance is polling behind.

    Vance is a terrible candidate.

    Media wants a “principled republican” to blow so badly that they settled on a Cheney.
    That’s really all it comes down to, they want someone they can build up to try and justify a lot of their centrist framing.

    If the Ohio GOP would have run any boring chamber of commerce, pro business candidate, this race wouldn’t be close.

    I think it’s telling that Rob Portman is only 66 and decided he had enough. Tim Ryan probably doesn’t run if Portman ran and Ryan instead tries to eke out his redistricted house seat.

    If John Kasich (70) or John Boehner (72) ran, it’s not close.

    Your first post is why you’d never see the second. If Ryan wins in Ohio, he will be gaining an unexpected seat and will serve his whole 6 year term. No reason to give the Senate seat back to the GOP governor to fill for 4 years until the next regularly scheduled election.

    While I didn’t think you were, sometimes your optimism for Ohio gets the best of you, and that ticket would make sense otherwise if it helped carry the entire Midwest including Ohio for the WH.

    We also have our obscure fall festivals which inexplicably draw tens of thousands, like the Sauerkraut Festival in Waynesville or the Zucchini Festival in Obetz.

    The season ends with the Pumpkin Show in Circleville.

    Maybe some Dems who are ignorant to newer social stuff and have liked that she is holding trump accountable. Perhaps if they’d otherwise sit on the sideline this November.

    But if I’m Tim Ryan I prob ignore her calls.

    I think that Liz Cheney can serve a small role by playing the "look I'm a fucking Cheney and even I think these republicans are insane" card for a 15 second TV campaign ad.

    The issue is that the media is going to suck her dick so much and give her hundreds of hours of free press, that she does so stupid shit like run 3rd party and gift 2024 to Trump/GOP.
