Mary Cheney: Drag Is Like Blackface

“Why is it socially acceptable – as a form of entertainment – for men to put on dresses, make up and high heels and act out every offensive stereotype of women (bitchy, catty, dumb, slutty, etc.) – but it is not socially acceptable – as a form of entertainment – for a white person to put on blackface and act ...

Cheney Vs Cheney, Part VI

“We were surprised that there was an attack launched against Liz on Facebook, and wished it hadn’t happened. It’s always been dealt with within the context of the family and frankly that’s our preference. That’s as far as I’m going to go on the subject. Don’t waste your time.” – Dick Cheney, on Mary’s rip on sister Liz.

Quote Of The Day – Les Kinsolving

“There was once a day in this nation when lesbians and others with alternate sexual orientations were comparatively mute.

Maggie: The Cheney Feud Is Staged

“The Cheney family is a very close family, and I don’t believe they would have this spat in public, except for the fact that it’s good for both of the sisters. It gives Mary a chance to air her deeply held, passionate moral convictions and advance the ball for gay marriage. And it helps Liz Cheney get elected senator in ...

Bryan Fischer On The Cheney Feud

“The one doing the sniping here is not the heterosexual, happily-married, Christian sister. The one who is lobbing the grenades here is her perpetually aggrieved, sexually-confused, gay-activist sibling. I’m not sure what you call it when one sister is trying to pick a very public fight with the other, and the second sister won’t fight back, but instead turns the ...

HomoQuotable – Mary Cheney

“I’m not supporting Liz’s candidacy. By supporting, I mean not working, not contributing, and not voting for (I’m registered in Virginia not Wyoming). I am not saying I hope she loses to Enzi.” – Mary Cheney, in an email sent to Politico.  And the family feud rolls on. Enzi, by the way, is destroying Cheney in the polls, so maybe ...

S.E. Cupp Vs Ralph Reed

CNN’s S.E. Cupp and wingnut freak show Ralph Reed tangled last night in a debate about gay marriage and the feuding Cheney sisters.

Frank Bruni On Liz Cheney

“If Liz Cheney, whose bid for the Senate has always had a stench of extreme opportunism, wants to discuss traditions and values, I’m all for it. Let’s start here: Isn’t there a tradition of close-knit family members’ taking care not to wound one another? Is there not value in that? [snip] But she plunged forward anyway, disregarding the inevitable discord. ...

Dick Cheney On Liz Vs Mary

“This is an issue we have dealt with privately for many years, and we are pained to see it become public.

Mary Cheney & Wife Fire Back At Liz

“I was watching my sister-in-law on Fox News Sunday (yes Liz, in fifteen states and the District of Columbia you are my sister-in-law) and was very disappointed to hear her say ‘I do believe in the traditional definition of marriage.’ Liz has been a guest in our home, has spent time and shared holidays with our children, and when Mary ...

Quote Of The Day – Liz Cheney

“I don’t believe we ought to discriminate against people because of their sexual orientation. If people are in a same-sex relationship and they want their partner to be able to have health benefits or be designated as a beneficiary on their life insurance, there’s no reason we shouldn’t do that. I also doesn’t support amending the constitution on this issue. ...

Cheney Vs Cheney

“For the record, I love my sister, but she is dead wrong on the issue of marriage. Freedom means freedom for everyone. That means that all families — regardless of how they look or how they are made — all families are entitled to the same rights, privileges and protections as every other. It’s not something to be decided by ...

FRC Slams Cheney On Marriage

Right Wing Watch reports that the Family Research Council is furious with Dick Cheney because he supported marriage equality in Maryland. Consider this thought experiment.

What ...

Dubya’s “Gay” Hypocrisy

In his new memoir, Bush II recounts how Dick Cheney warned him that his daughter Mary was gay, just in case that was a deal-breaker for being chosen as a running mate.
