Mary Mary, Quite Contrary
Big Dick's lesbian daughter Mary Cheney was interviewed by Diane Sawyer on 20/20 Thursday night, promoting her new book, "Now It's My Turn..."
I've scanned a few queer lefty blogs and there's been plenty of venom spewed in her direction, but I mainly feel sorry for her.
She traded being true to herself, her sexual orientation and the concept of basic equal rights for lots of money and family influenced political expedience.
She makes more than $100 grand a year shilling for her daddy.
She cleans up pretty nice. They femmed her up with diamond earrings, a femme hairdo and muted smoky eye shadow. She's definitely do-able, if one could ignore her convoluted politics and worship of the mighty buck.
She's also articulate and poised.
But she didn't say anything that would compel me to read her book.
She dodged the hard questions with the skill of any Republican flack, and of course Diane Sawyer let her slide.
Not to worry, Dick, she didn't rock the GOP boat one iota.
She even said she'd vote for George Bush again--even if her daddy wasn't in the picture. She said Bush "was a good man."
One of my sisters has a lesbian partner who not long ago ran for judge as a Republican.
She wasn't a Republican, she claimed, but she wanted to defeat the incumbent female Democrat so she ran as a Republican "in name only."
Sorry, but I didn't buy it.
If she had any integrity, she would have taken on the incumbent Democrat and let the fur fly.
She was defeated, so now she works as a criminal defense attorney who represents child molesters, rapists, crack dealers and murderers.
Hey, the money's good. She even has a giant screen TV she got as payment from a crack dealer.
But, like Mary Cheney, she traded her soul when she ran for office as a Republican.
After I learned that little factoid about her, I tried my best to like her for the sake of my sister, but the sad truth is, she lives her life and acts like a Republican.
She's pretentious, she looks down on those who earn less, she is inconsiderate and elitist.
She's even haughty toward my other sister because she practices law that benefits the downtrodden, and as a result, pays less.
Both Mary Cheney and my sister's Republican, pedophile-defending partner have the right to act and believe as they wish. Neither seems to care about the adage, "to thine own self be true."
But I respect neither of them, and have no interest in reading either of their stories.
I know their stories.
