You have to wonder just what is going through that woman's head. Does she honestly thing that she can breeze into the state and spout that "My heart has always been in Wyoming" crap and expect people to look at her like a long lost relative? Is she looking at a senate seat as an extension of her punditry and doesn't think she'll have to actually work at the nation's business? Or has she just been in DC so long she's completely lost touch with the rest of the planet? I'm in central Nebraska and I doubt that the folks here are a whole lot different than the average Wyoming resident, and everyone thinks "If she tried that stunt here she'd be laughed out of the state". And our senator is not only retiring but is a shade less conservative than Enzi is.
I know exactly what’s going through her head.
She’s been selected by the GOP-e to run. They want a reliable, pliable candidate who will be reliably interventionist in middle eastern affairs, ready to carry water for the Federal Reserve and the Wall Street cartels, etc.
They know Enzi is getting old(er) and they’re seeking to lock up this seat before it gets vacated and a possible “Tea Party” populist can get their foot in the door and the neo-cons lose more influence in the Congress.
She’s thinking “I have the GOP party hacks and money men behind me, so I should win against a guy who is the favorite of a bunch of gap-toothed hillbillies, rednecks and snaggle-toothed ranchers and their cows.”
