Noted. Just sounds like typical "Cheney-hate" to me. Business as usual....

I guess her love for power is greater than any love she has for her sister! With family like that......

It's all about money and power; who cares about human rights and civil rights!

DISGUSTING.
SHAMEFUL.

Leave it to a Cheney to sell out their own flesh and blood in order to win votes --from far right Republican wing-nuts, no less!

So much for Family Values, & I guess blood isn't thicker than ice water

Anyone with that much trouble accepting a sibling as she is would seem likely to have trouble being effective as a member of a team (e.g., party, caucus, Congress) and thus is unlikely to be effective if elected--and so shouldn't get votes.

She only moved back to Wyoming just so she can run for the.Senate. What A Bitch! Mary Cheney, the younger sister of Liz Cheney, sharply criticized her sisterís stance on same-sex marriage & urged her own Facebook friends to share the message. LOL

Mary Cheney must be a very special person to put up with a sister like Liz. It never feels good knowing your family is ashamed of you ~ even if you don't deserve the shame.

Sigh.... Darth Vader Jr.......there is no love in that family, it only knows hate and lust for power.

Carrie, I have the feeling it is Mary who is ashamed of Liz...I mean really,who the hell would want a sister like Liz. She us her dad without the penis....same rotten/racist/hate/greedy/selfish/war mongering neocon kind of person as he from the get go ..in my person. She's one sick puppy who should have been spayed long ago , in my opinion.

She obviously is a lot like her father. Just to think someone like Liz with so much hate wants to run for the Senate, makes my skin crawl. Thanks Carrie.

That statement must have saddened her sister and I hope her career in politics is a very short one. Though at least this candidate doesn't flip-flop on an issue just because it involves family and there's a certain integrity in maintaining one's values even when it's personally difficult to do so (however misguided and wrong I believe those values to be).

I do not blame her at all in taking such a stance. In morality lines must be drawn. I do not support gay relationships either.

Debbie W, if what you say is truly what you believe then you're as big a moron as Darth Cheney's despicable scumbag douche of a daughter. Since she's always wrong about everything and a truly ignorant hatemonger, you are putting yourself in league with Satan.

Jae said: "She's one sick puppy who should have been spayed long ago , in my opinion. "

I disagree, it's her mother who should have been spayed. (When she was a pre teen) Unless maybe Mary is older rhan Liz, in which case....

Just checked, Mary born 1959, Liz 1966, so there is a 7 year window in which mom should have been spayed. ;o)

"She obviously is a lot like her father. Just to think someone like Liz with so much hate wants to run for the Senate, makes my skin crawl."

But what Republican isn't a hatemonger? I can tell you, my Republican Senator is usually wrong and votes for the filibusters, but one thing he is, is a decent person who doesn't do the Republican hate thing. He frequently is on the side of the angels, which makes him the only decent Republican in congress. Hail to thee oh Mark Kirk, you're only a little bit of a scumbag.

My Father's another one, Robert K. A lifelong Republican who's also pro-choice on abortion, thinks physician-aid-in-dying should be legal everywhere, and, although a devout Methodist, wants government to stay firmly out of the religion business. Not all Republicans are extremists, thankfully.

Lindsey, I wasn't commenting on regular people, just Republican politicians, but I would say that voting for Republicans, even if lifelong Reps, (I was for 40 years) is proof that either they aren't paying attention to the actual facts, but to the propaganda, or that they are too dumb to get it.

Your Dad sounds like one of those who votes for the man, not the party. And that's cool.

Daddy is one of those Republicans who votes Republican because he agrees with their fiscal policies much more than he does the Democrats' policies in that area. And unfortunately he votes a straight Republican ticket - one thing I've always argued with him about. I think it's really wrong to offer the choice of a straight ticket on anyone's ballot. It's just a way for people to take the easy way out instead of thinking things through (one of the reasons why we here in Alabama saw the detestable Judge Roy Moore - of Roy's Rock infamy - re-elected as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, after he'd already been kicked off the bench as Chief Justice before due to his disregard and utter disdain for Constitutional limits on religious promotion by government). Daddy hated the man - but stupidly voted for him by default when he voted straight Republican.

I always like that my local paper publishes sample ballots in any election - that way I can do up my cheat-sheet ballot early so that I'll have time to look at each of the candidates and research them at least somewhat, and won't get confused when it comes time to vote. And luckily Alabama allows write-in votes - even though my write in isn't going to win (obviously).

"Lines must be drawn," comes from a reliance on, and a belief in dogma, on a black and white view of the world. One could, I believe, argue for a morality based on love, respect and caring for one's fellow humans, rather than rigid, religious driven absolutes.

I always wonder when homophobes claim morality as being a valued principle they can only understand and solely lay claim, either by their religious beliefs or due to misguided logic. I see morality in its simplest terms, of right or wrong, good or evil. It think it's wrong and evil to demonize a whole group of people for just one facet of their personality; especially when that psychological trait has already been established as a normal sexual orientation, going on 40 years, by respected psychiatric institutions. I think it's wrong and evil to strip a LGBTQ individual of their civil rights, and deny them their "alienable rights" to "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". These "alienable rights" include the right to love, get marry, have children, hold a job.....basic rights that are given without a second thought to those who happen to be heterosexual.

So, Debbie W., it seems your idea of morality falls on the wrong side. Anyone wanting that kind of oppression, hate and discrimination on a fellow human being can't claim to know the true meaning of morality, or for that matter, the true meaning of compassion and empathy.

I didn't realize that families had to agree on everything.
