Liz Cheney just got a huge endorsement: Fox's Sean Hannity.
HANNITY: We need more Ted Cruzes. Liz Cheney is like Ted Cruz. I'm voting for Liz.
Wait, he's voting for her? But I thought he lived in New York?
HANNITY: Or, I'm endorsing her. I can't [vote for her] because I don't live in Wyoming."
Ah, got it. And is there anything about Mike Enzi that Hannity finds objectionable?
HANNITY: Mike Enzi, he was one of the Gang of Six Senators who worked with Obama on health care. [...] He brags how he's the 80/20 guy, I work with Ted Kennedy.
If Sean Hannity thinks Mike Enzi was an ally to President Obama on health care reform, he's nuts. In fact, back in 2009, when Liz Cheney wasn't a twinkle in anybody's eye, Enzi explained what he was actually doing in those talks: "It's not where I get them to compromise, it's what I get them to leave out." He also said: "If I hadn't been involved in this process as long as I have and to the depth as I have, you would already have national health care."

In other words, he wasn't there to help Democrats. He was there to obstruct and delay. Oddly enough, that's Liz Cheney's stated reason for running.

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.
