Liz Cheney’s attempt to win the Republican nomination for the Senate in Wyoming is apparently coming to a close with nothing to show for it but a rift with her sister.
To the chagrin and anger of lots of Republicans, Cheney had challenged incumbent Mike Enzi by running far to the right in hopes of distracting voters from the fact that she looked an awful lot like a carpetbagger from Virginia.
Undoubtedly the low point of Liz’s campaign was her decision to use opposition to marriage equality to prove her right-wing credentials. That move was a clear slap in the face at sister Mary and her wife Heather. They responded with a public dressing down, pointing out that Liz happily attended their wedding before deciding she hated lesbian nuptials.
Don’t you hate it when family members call you a hypocrite in public? Especially when they’re right.
About the only good thing to come out the campaign for Liz was the knowledge that she is Dad Dick Cheney’s favorite daughter, who was quick to come to her defense and to note how irritated he was with the attack on her.
