Nevermind, just happened to actually read TFA.

the Wyoming Senate candidate wasn't supportive of same-sex marriage, despite having a sister who married her longtime partner in Washington, D.C., last year.

It takes a special kind of bigot to want to oppress your own kin.  Civilized countries do not put civil rights up for popular votes.

That line is a load of crap, regardless of who utters it.  Because they'd still oppose it if the state decided it was OK.  Bunch of noncommittal hogwash.

Did you release a statement to the press that says you think manipulative golddigging b*tches shouldn't have the same rights as other b*tches? Does it fit into your campaign strategy to win a Senate seat in Wyoming?

If not you're making a bad analogy, which does in fact make you a bad person.

Liz Cheney doesn't need to say this to be a bad person, because she's taken plenty of actions to let us know she's a bad person.

Liz absolutely believes in marriage equality. She's lying to win a Senate seat, just as Dick admits that he believed in marriage equality in 2004, but couldn't say so because it would've hurt he and Bush's reelection chances. Mary Cheney has clearly sold her soul and doesn't care if her father or sister lie in order to advance their careers. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time at their house.

If you somehow convinced your brother not to marry the person he married, there's still women available in the marriage pool that he presumably would be willing to marry. But if he were gay and living in, say, Texas, his marriage pool would be empty. That's profoundly unfair. And if you advocate for keeping someone's marriage pool empty, then you are 100% acting like a farking bigot. Bigoted behavior makes me vomitous.

"Civil Rights" issues should in 99.9% of cases never be left up to the states.... the problem with that is, the GOP doesn't believe most people should have civil rights anyway.  Well, most people, other than the corporations that are now "people", Civil rights are probably good for them.
