In Gay Marriage Feud, Dick Cheney Sides With the Wrong Daughter
Posted on Nov 18, 2013
Mary Cheney, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s gay daughter, has publicly condemned her elder sister’s intolerant position on gay marriage, going so far to insinuate political opportunism.
Mary says her sister Liz, who would like to represent Wyoming in the Senate, has always been nice to her and her wife. Why then does she adhere to an anti-gay marriage platform? Probably something to do with that Senate run.
Papa Dick and his wife, Lynne, finally waded into the sibling spat and, staying consistent with the terrible judgment he showed as vice president, sided with the bigoted daughter.
Although Dick Cheney has previously defended his gay daughter—maybe one of the only heartwarming moments of his political career—he seems to have shifted his favor to the Senate-bound progeny.
For her part, Mary appears not to be speaking with her sister—outside of the media—and she tells the Times she won’t reconcile until Liz comes to her senses.
