CNN's John King is reporting that Liz Cheney is dropping her bid for the Senate.

Cheney’s campaign had gotten off to a rough start, most visibly with jabs traded with her own sister, Mary Cheney, over Liz’s views on marriage equality. (Mary is married to a woman, Liz is opposed to same-sex marriage.) But more to the point of a political primary, Liz’s move to Wyoming from Virginia in 2012, and her association with her famous father made her challenge against a conservative Republican a difficult one. Dick Cheney was a five-time Wyoming Congressman as well as US vice president, and his help in the campaign didn’t seem to be helping, King notes: “Cheney, like her father, is an unapologetic neoconservative who favors muscular use of American military power overseas, a policy that does not sit well with many grassroots conservatives, particularly in the libertarian-leaning West.”
Who knew. A carpet-bagging bigot who would turn her back on her own sister who's family she once sat around the holiday table with? Give it up for Dick Cheney's prodigy.

Please world, let this be the very last we ever hear of the Cheney family.

This deserves my shortest diary ever.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
