Dick and Lynne Cheney are 'Pained' That the Family Feud Over Gay Marriage Has Become Public

Cheneys

Dick and Lynne Cheney have released a statement in response to the family feud that broke out publicly yesterday after Wyomin Senate candidate's appearance on FOX News Sunday.

"This is an issue we have dealt with privately for many years, and we are pained to see it become public. Since it has, one thing should be clear. Liz has always believed in the traditional definition of marriage. She has also always treated her sister and her sister's family with love and respect, exactly as she should have done. Compassion is called for, even when there is a disagreement about such a fundamental matter and Liz's many kindnesses shouldn't be used to distort her position."

To recap, Liz says she favors "traditional marriage" and her lesbian sister Mary and Mary's wife Heather Poe aren't having it anymore.

  1. The entire family is disgusting and reprehensible. Again with the "let's agree to disagree" nonsense.

  2. They're just upset because they were revealed to be hypocrites, not because they actually are hypocrites. Agree to disagree is infuriating and demeaning in this regard. Good for the girls to not put up with the BS any longer.

  3. The real pain comes when we all have to hear them scrambling to convince the world they're not ignorant and bigoted.

  4. Darth Cheney and the whole crew need to go away.

    When it mattered none of them did anything to stop the Bush Push to hurt us all.

    Its way to late for Mary to pretend to be outraged when she way paid to help demonize us.

  5. He helped create it as a wedge issue in the 90s. Now the wedge is dividing his own family.

  6. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of nasty, selfish, arrogant, hypocritical bigots. It's better than they deserve.

  7. How can something be called kindness when it amounts to disparaging the most important relationship in the life of your own sister?

  8. Surprise, it's all about how wonderful Liz is (gee, you'd think she was running for office or something), but when it comes to Mary they've always wanted to keep the issue "private." Back to your closet of silence, naughty Mary! Creeps.

  10. "we have dealt with privately for many years, and we are pained to see it become public. "

  11. The Cheneys know no shame. 2004 wasn't that long ago.

  12. I'm pained to see that Darth Cheney still walks the Earth! It needs to be blasted into deep space to kill it. The Eveready Bunny pales by comparison. It's keepers keep re-fitting it with new hardware. Gah! The children!

    This "feud" is all about getting Liz elected to the Senate. How could Mary not know about Liz's (alleged) position if they've "been dealing with this issue for years"?

    Mary and Heather are just helping Liz look more anti-gay than her opponent.

  14. Should not the vile head twit be sneering in a prison someplace instead of appearing on Faux News Sunday?

  15. It is wonderful they decided to talk about their private matter in public, again! They should look at the mirror.

  16. English: The birthright of every American to civil marriage. Cheneyese: This "issue". Dehumanizing, dismissive, reductive. Why is this person still walking as a free man? Heather Poe must have a steel stomach not to firebomb her in-laws.

  17. "we have dealt with privately for many years, and we are pained to see it become public."

    Then stop running for PUBLIC office and just go away. The whole lot of you.

  18. Like most Republicans, the Cheneys are haters. True to form, they also hate each other.

  19. Mary Cheney is a disgusting hypocrite who worked hard to elect antigay politicians, including George W Bush. I have no respect for her at all.
    That said, I hope that she and her wife Heather take down Liz Cheney by exposing her for the fraud that she is. We don't need any more Cheneys elected to public office.

  20. it makes me sick the "The View" came them a Forum..sorry there is no other answer, your daughter LIZ is on the WRONG side of HISTORY - PERIOD!

  21. Who knew Dicky was such a f@g lover? The only reason Dyke Cheney (oops Mary) is a lesbian is that she was too ugly to find a man. Most queers have that problem, so they drift into the arms of similarly ugly members of the same sex. It's the same reason why liberals gravitate towards each other.

  23. Well, won't Thanksgiving dinner next week at the Cheneys be quite the Hallmark moment?

  24. Why does everyone assume that Heather and Mary are having Thanksgiving dinner with Liz and her brood?

  25. I'm sure that hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqi civilians would feel terrible for him.
