Lynne Cheney, Susan Thomas floated as possible replacements for late Sen. Craig Thomas

Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, is being floated in Senate GOP leadership circles as a possible replacement for the late Sen. Craig Thomas (R-Wyo.), who died Monday night. Susan Thomas, the late senator's wife, has also been mentioned by Senate Republicans as a potential choice to take over for her husband, as well as former Justice Department official Tom Sansonetti.
One GOP insider said Lynne Cheney had been in Washington "too long" to be acceptable to the Wyoming GOP, despite her long resume, although that would change if Cheney were to return to Wyoming on a full-time basis. Susan Thomas is reportedly not interested in serving out her husband's term.
Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and Dick Cheney, who attends the regular Tuesday policy luncheon by Senate Republicans, were spotted talking yesterday afternoon, but Enzi said Lynne Cheney was not discussed. In fact, Enzi said, he is not involved in any discussions related to Thomas' replacement..


"I talk to Dick Cheney any chance I can get," Enzi said on Wednesday. "But not about that."
The Wyoming GOP has 15 days from Tuesday to recommend three replacements to Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal (D). Freudenthal will then name Thomas' successor from that list. That person will face a special election next year. Enzi is up for re-election to a third term in 2008 as well.
Other candidates mentioned in media reports include: state Sen. John Barrasso; state Rep. Colin Simpson, son of former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.); and U.S. Attorney Matt Mead.
Update: I should have said that whoever is appointed to this seat will stand for election, not re-election, next year, as one reader pointed out. In addition, Colin Simpson is a state representative, not state senator. I apologize and have corrected the story. John
Update 2: I just want to make sure all readers understand - the process for replacing Sen. Thomas is enshrined in the Wyoming constitution. Gov. Freudenthal has to pick from the three candidates named by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee. He cannot name a Democrat to this post.

Maybe Lynne Cheney would be a good choice. After all she is the author of the book "Telling the Truth" which has guided her husband, friends Scooter, Kenny Lay, W and the rest of the Administration to a level of ethical bounds not seen since, well Watergate, humorously where hubby worked as Deputy Ass. to the President in 1974-1975.

Truth is a funny thing.

She's a shrew. Another gay person living a life in the closet, mentally ill from self-loathing.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

It's pretty well known that Lynne Cheney is as gay as her daughter. In the strange world of Republican politics, Ms. Cheney, a scion of the religious right, is also the author of gay soft-porn novels. I bet the real problem with Dick is he hasn't fucked her in decades.

So you are saying she is not interested in Dick?
