The Evolution of Lynne Cheney

Second lady Lynne Cheney has a new book coming out and she spoke with CBS about it as well as about how she has "evolved" on racism and homophobia:

CheneybookIn Blue Skies, No Fences: A Memoir of Childhood and Family, "Cheney acknowledges that her world of prom dates and being homecoming queen was not open to everyone - African Americans, for example. And she writes that the times 'were hard on kids who were gay.' It's an issue that Cheney is sensitive to as the mother of a gay daughter. 'I think the society has evolved,' she said. 'I've evolved in my way of thinking, but I think the whole society has evolved. You know, my mother had a rule which was people are just people.'"

Well, last time I checked, society hadn't evolved much.

And according to Dick, Lynne is way out of line for discussing Mary. Because in the "evolved" world of the Cheneys, you can neither talk about your gay kids, nor offer them equal rights. Unless, of course, you have a book to sell.

  1. The moderator at the next of 10,000 debates should ask the Republican candidates a simple question--"In your opinion, why is Mary Cheney gay?"

We all know he was and still is in charge of this country. Bush is too fucking stupid. Keep repeating to yourself Just one more year, Just one more year, Just one more..

  5. Most people who know both of them will tell you, with little debate, that Lynn is actually more evil and mean-spirited than her husband. Hard to imagine, but true.

    And in their private lives they really don't have any problem with Mary being gay. (Mary and her father are extremely close, more than with his other daughter.) It's all politics, which makes their public behavior even more reprehensible.

  6. Hypocritical fuckers.

  7. Why do members of this family feel the need to publish "books" about their pathetic, super-secret lives. And who buys this drivel?

  8. Has society "evolved," as Lynne Cheney disingenuously claims, or is it merely that she's trying to soften her hardcore harpy image because the Bush/Cheney era is drawing to a rapid end?

    She wants to sell her lousy books, nothing more, and though it is tempting to read more than that into her cute little Wyoming cheerleader remarks about the evolution of society, it pays to remember that she and her pals and other social connections on the hard right have done more in the last 20 years to make sure that society doesn't evolve than almost anyone in this entire nation.

  9. In three weeks Lynne will be on TMZ claiming she's been intimate with Larry Craig.

    I would have preferred a reprint of Sisters.

  12. haha! FASTLAD.

    i am so sick of the cheney's and the bushies. they are nothing more than cynical, oportunistic parasites that have been feeding off the body politic virtually all of their pathetic lives.

    if i believed in the concept of hell, i would be feeling a little sorry for them. absent that, i just feel abject and abysmal disgust.

  13. Fuck that fucking cunt.

  14. Ms. Cheney is married to the most dangerous person in the USA.
    I hope someday all those with hate in their hearts will wake up and realize the damage that they are doing, not only to themselves but others.
    Her comments are typical of someone trying to peddle a book... I hope sales are horrible for her...
