Liz and Mary Cheney, and Heather Poe (Mary’s wife), are having a family feud on Facebook over Liz’s anti-gay comments yesterday on Fox News Sunday. Heather says it best:
I was watching my sister-in-law on Fox News Sunday (yes Liz, in fifteen states and the District of Columbia you are my sister-in-law) and was very disappointed to hear her say “I do believe in the traditional definition of marriage.”
Liz has been a guest in our home, has spent time and shared holidays with our children, and when Mary and I got married in 2012 – she didn’t hesitate to tell us how happy she was for us.
To have her now say she doesn’t support our right to marry is offensive to say the least
Some will say that this is a piece of campaign ratfucking, similar to the poll that Kay posted from a PAC opposing Liz that has her support pegged at 17% (when everyone knows it should be 27%). By complaining loud and long, Heather and Mary might be sending a message to Wyoming that Liz really does hate the gays with the intensity required to qualify as a right-thinking Republican primary challenger. Maybe so, but everyone gets dirty in a mudfight, and Liz’s campaign is already a dirty, ugly mess, so if this is a strategy, it’s on par with the general stupidity that’s dogged Liz’s campaign since the beginning.
