Liz Cheney is running on a platform of opposition to her own sister's marriage -- and even her legal right to get married. I've heard of politicians who struggle with "family values," but this is remarkable.
Remarkable indeed. Let's all hope that Wyoming voters don't taint the United States Senate with this heartless, nasty woman. Having absolutely no problem using her own sister's rights to happiness and dignity as bargaining chips to win the race should be a huge red flag to sane Wyoming residents: if Liz has no problem throwing her own sister under the bus without even batting an eye, she sure as hell will not have a problem doing it to them as well.
"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 a show of hands. Please like and share if you agree." - Mary Cheney (above right), writing today on her Facebook page.
Mary Cheney shows a lot more class and compassion than her sister, but then maybe she didn't get that gene for ruthlessness that her sister and daddy have.
