Current's John Fugelsang Rips Mary Cheney Wedding Hypocrisy: VIDEO


Current's John Fugelsang goes off on the Cheneys:

So on behalf of all the progressives in America, Cheney family, allow me to say, “You’re welcome.”

Because while Dick Cheney’s party spent decades calling people like Mary deviant or unnatural, the liberals were fighting for her. When Karl Rove made same-sex marriage a wedge issue to divide Americans in the 2004 election, liberals were writing the checks to defeat that homophobic agenda. And when Fox News spent hundreds of hours lying about people like Mary Cheney and calling them a threat to traditional marriage, the very people Mary’s dad so deeply despises were the ones standing up for her liberty.

So you’re welcome, Cheneys, we were happy to do it.

  1. I'm glad someone called them out on this BS. It seemed such a slap in the face when their wedding was announced and then to hear of some of the wedding attendees, I was nonplussed. Bravo John Fugelsang. Bravo.

  2. I agree it's insane, but maybe the idiots who are planning and attending this wedding will learn a thing or two and stop stalling the progress of equal marriage for all. Or then again, maybe their heads are stuck so far up their asses that they can't see the irony of it all.

  3. On the other hand, why did Mary Cheney invite those assholes to celebrate the wedding they'd tried for years to block/degrade?

  4. The Cheneys themselves were always limply gay neutral on various issues, but the true hypocrites would be the attendees of the wedding that were against gay marriage: evangelicals and outspoken conservatives.

  5. The bigots going to this wedding are doing so for merely superficial reasons: to be seen with the Cheney's, to drink lots of champagne so they can fall asleep during the nuptials which will keep them from throwing up, and to brown nose. you know afterwards they're going to go home and gossip about the "weird spectacle" and to pat themselves on the back for being "with it, donchaknow".

  6. Is he saying "we" as a liberal or a gay guy? Either way he's still cool.

  7. He's a verbal abuser, too, like Savage.
