Republicans Forgive Liz Cheney for Having Conscience

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—After an extensive debate and much hand-wringing, House Republicans have decided to forgive Representative Liz Cheney for having a conscience.

The decision came despite the objections of a sizable faction of the G.O.P. conference, which warned that allowing the Wyoming congresswoman to possess a moral compass could set a dangerous precedent that other rogue members might follow.

“We Republicans have had the great good fortune of being unburdened by principles for as long as I can remember,” Representative Jim Jordan warned. “This could be a slippery slope.”

Hoping to silence such arguments, the House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, characterized Cheney’s momentary flareup of rectitude as “an isolated incident.”
