Mary Cheney marries long-time partner: GOP congratulates, Left insults

The former Vice President’s daughter, Mary, wed her long-time partner today. Mr. and Mrs. Cheney released a lovely statement announcing the news, as The Daily Caller reports:

In a statement provided to TheDC, both the former vice president and his wife, Lynne, said they are “delighted” the couple could have their “relationship recognized.”

“Our daughter Mary and her long time partner, Heather Poe, were married today in Washington, DC,” the Cheneys said.

Poe and Mary Cheney have two children: Cheney gave birth to a son in 2007, and a daughter in 2009. They live together in Virginia.

“Mary and Heather have been in a committed relationship for many years, and we are delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized,” the Cheneys said. “Mary and Heather and their children are very important and much loved members of our family and we wish them every happiness.”

“We are all so happy for Heather and Mary and their beautiful kids,” friend and former Cheney adviser Mary Matalin told TheDC. “Happy and moved by the blessing of their commitment and strength.”

Conservative Twitter users echoed the congratulations of Mary Matalin.

This didn’t sit well with the bitter and always angry Left. Instead of being happy for the couple and offering congratulations, the Left instead spouted their usual hate-filled bile.

@Drudge_Report i wonder if #neocons are any good at licking pussy? #tcot #gop

@chrisgeidner @jaketapper Shameless, heartless. If Mary Cheney has a conscience she is going to need a lot of Ambien tonight.

Look in the mirror, shameless and heartless.

So Mary Cheney, traitor to the global queer family and lesbian, was married or something. For some reason I'm really disgusted by his news.

Disgusted. Instead of happy for the couple. These are the actual H8rs.

Bigots, heal thyselves. And try to grow up and enter the real world, instead of living in a caricature-filled one. Get out of your basements and talk to real people.

Dick Cheney is happy Mary finally got married To a woman? Wait! I thought he stood firmly against gay right to marriage

No, honey. He is further “evolved” on that than The One.

@punditreview too bad the DNC isn't as progressive in supporting gay rights as Dick Cheney.

— Todd Verhoeven (@ToddWine) June 22, 2012

Bingo. They don’t actually care about gay people. They only seek to use them for a political end. The Cheneys recognized this long ago.

Mary Cheney’s sexual orientation has long been known, but she and her family said that it should not be used as political issue throughout her father’s political career.

“This is a baby,” Mary Cheney said in 2007 about her son. “This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement. It is not a prop to be used in a debate by people on either side of an issue. It is my child.”

Exactly. But the Left often sink so low as to reprehensibly use children as political tools. They also continue to try to invent some divide in the Cheney family where none exists.

The Cheneys have always supported their daughter, openly. It seems as if pretty much anyone with a functioning brain would know that. But, hey, it doesn’t suit the bigot narrative, now, does it?

Why are so many #anti#gay #Republicans suddenly cheering Mary #Cheney's gay marriage? Oh, that's right, #GOP #gays are OK,others not.

That is hilarious coming from people who try to punitively shame gay people who won’t toe the leftist line.

Mary Cheney got married. Good for her. Now if she'd speak out about marriage equality I'd be happy.

See, she’s only an “authentic gay person” if she trots herself out as a tool for the left. They aren’t For The Gays ™. They are for using gay people only. Despicable.

Best wishes to Mary, Heather and their beautiful children.
