Mary Cheney Describes Herself As 'Darth Vader's Daughter,' Talks GOP Support for Marriage Equality

Mary cheneySomewhere in Mary Cheney’s home sits a vintage action figure of the one-time Supreme Commander of the Imperial Fleet. Specifically--the toy lives in her seven year-old son’s room as a tongue-in-cheek reminder of Cheney’s self-proclaimed identity as “Darth Vader’s daughter.”

Cheney joked about her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, earlier this week during an intimate gathering of college Republicans at the American University in Washington, D.C. Despite Cheney’s longstanding alignment with the Republican Party, she continues to openly push for a more socially progressive GOP when it comes to LGBT equality. In her estimation, she explained, much of the Right’s future success will be contingent upon its continued evolution of thought when it comes to gay Americans.

“I think you’re going to see a lot more Republicans taking the Scott Walker, Chris Christie approach of ‘that’s settled, we’re moving on,’” she said. “I don’t picture the whole national Republican Party running to embrace the issue of marriage equality any time in the near future, I certainly don’t expect to see it in the party’s platform next year in Cleveland.”

Cheney admitted that none of the current potential Republican frontrunners for the 2016 presidential election piqued her interest in particular, though she “would love it if Rob Portman decided to run.”

When asked Cheney declined to comment on her very public spat with her older sister Liz’s opposition to gay marriage.

Rachel Maddow ridiculed Dick and Liz Cheney for "blessing us" with their video sermon and new group, which has a "slap dash minor league feel" to it, according to Maddow, including a misspelled website, a poorly strategized URL, and a heaping load of "laugh out loud" self-parody and hypocrisy.

"A significant portion of the country is convulsing at the sight of these people as we try to have a reason and informed debate about Iraq...For Dick Cheney and his daughter, it's almost at a level that approaches parody..."

Cowboy Dick Cheney and His Daughter Liz Warn America About Obama in New Video: WATCH

Cheney

Former VP Dick Cheney, who led America into a false war against Iraq costing billions of dollars and countless lives, and his daughter Liz have recorded a new video pushing a group they have formed, The Alliance for a Strong America, from which to "advocate for a restoration of American strength and power," (aka "attack President Obama and other Democrats").

Says Cheney in the video:

"Our enemies no longer fear us. Our allies no longer trust us. Empty threats, meaningless redlines, leading from behind, and 'engagement' with rogue regimes, have put America on a path of decline. Threats to America’s security are on the rise. Iran is marching towards a nuclear weapon. Al Qaeda is resurgent, establishing new safe havens across the Middle East, including in Iraq where President Obama withdrew all American forces with no stay behind agreement. He has announced he intends to [do] the same in Afghanistan. Syria has become the most dangerous training ground for Islamic terrorists since the attacks of 9/11."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

The rollout of the group is accompanied by a joint op-ed in the Wall Street Journal blasting Obama on Iraq and Afghanistan.

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is "ending" the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality.

Dick Cheney Was 'Surprised' by Mary's Facebook Attack on Liz

Former VP Dick Cheney spoke (very) briefly with ABC News about his lesbian daughter Mary Cheney and her wife Heather Poe's Facebook attack on their other daughter Liz Cheney over her position on same-sex marriage:

Cheney“We were surprised that there was an attack launched against Liz on Facebook, and wished it hadn’t happened,” Cheney said at the National Press Club. “It’s always been dealt with within the context of the family and frankly that’s our preference.”

Today, Cheney said the incident is “obviously a difficult thing for a family,” but he declined to comment any further on the controversy or his position on gay marriage.

“That’s as far as I’m going to go on the subject,” Cheney told his interviewer. “Don’t waste your time.”
