Dick Cheney: Family feud over gay marriage has been ‘dealt with’

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said this week that the family feud between his daughters over gay marriage has been “dealt with.”

Mr. Cheney said he was surprised that his daughter Mary, who is a lesbian and married to a woman, aimed fire at Liz, who is running for the Senate in Wyoming and opposes gay marriage, ABC News reported.

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

The spat between Mr. Cheney’s two daughters flared up last month after Liz defended herself on Fox News Sunday against allegations that she supported same-sex marriage, saying she supported traditional marriage.

And Mary Chaney is just as much of a worthless POS as her sister.

I saw bits of the interview. He's so craven and power hungry that he'd throw one daughter under the bus to get his other idealogical progeny elected.

liz chaney is now the darling of the right wing in her run for a senate seat next year.

a massive faux "family argument" made public so she can trot out her right wing crazy creds.

dirty laundry is now a politic tactic.
