Republican Liz Cheney is dropping her bid to become a Senator from the State of Wyoming. She was attempting to challenge popular incumbent Republican Mike Enzi for the nomination. The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney shocked the Republican establishment in Wyoming with her bitter attack on the incumbent and bold attempt to cash in on the family name.
Ms. Cheney is citing 'family reasons' for her departure from the race.
That use of family by her is just hysterical since she had zero problem dividing her own family for her naked power grab.
In announcing her bid, she ignored her married lesbian sister and came out against marriage equality. Her sister Mary Cheney fought back and said it was outrageous that her sister would diminish her marriage. The race did cause deep divisions within the family several months ago
At the time those divisions did not seem to affect Ms. Cheney as she continued to push her anti-marriage equality positions. Now that the polls are showing that she is a sure loser, she is pretending to care about the unity of the family In fact, she is using the pain she cause the sister as the reason for departure.
Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself and really spend some time boning up on the meaning of family values. Families are places of love are not a political tool you use to hurt others and then conveniently rediscover them when you need an excuse for your own losing race.
