John Fugelsang Sends His Congrats to Mary Cheney

Posted by on Tue, Jun 26, 2012 at 12:24 PM

And what Andrew said:

[When Mary Cheney married her partner Heather] they had to go to DC, because their home state of Virginia is run by the most neanderthal group of Republican reactionaries in the country. Whom Mary's father, Dick Cheney, strongly supports. The amazing thing about Dick Cheney is that he is actually given credit at this point for defending his own daughter's right to marry. But neither he nor Mary has lifted a finger to help advance the cause or make the case, when either one could have transformed the debate. The family is parasitic on the courage of others—and utterly without principle in their enmeshment with power.

How bad are things for same-sex couples in Virginia that don't include at least one Cheney? This bad.

The only problem with Fugelsang's theory is that until last month it also applied to Barack Obama. Obama needed (still may need?) the homophobe vote. This doesn't put the Cheneys in a favorable light AT ALL but it should highlight the capricious nature of political friends/foes: more or less they are ALL full of shit.

More proof that citing Cheney as a supporter of marriage equality is ridiculous and doing so should disqualify you from further participation in the discussion.

@2 your point being?

It's almost enough to make one wish for Heather to get hit by a bus, see the hospital roundly abuse a sobbing Mary's spousal rights, and watch the ensuing shitstorm in the media. Almost.

Do we realize that WaPo article linked is from 2004?

I suppose Dan, if you were there, would have spoken up if Mary and Heather's vows contained "... and if anyone can show just cause why these two..."
