There aren’t many things more divisive than Liz Cheney. Except for gay marriage. Put those things together, and you’re bound to see some fireworks.
And that’s exactly what happened:
Making a complete reversal on her anti-gay marriage stance of the past, she appeared on “60 Minutes” and claimed she was “wrong” for ever opposing same-sex marriage.
“I was wrong. I was wrong. It’s a very personal issue — and very personal for my family. I believe that my dad was right. And my sister and I have had that conversation … Freedom means freedom for everybody.”
It was quite the controversy when Cheney denounced gay marriage in 2013, as her sister is an open lesbian.
Now, it’s not even a controversy, it’s just sad. Strong conservatives are angry at Cheney for giving up on traditional marriage, and liberals are continuing to hate her, saying her reversal is too little too late.
Liz Cheney is an ambitious opportunist who threw her lesbian sister under the bus because she thought it would play well with Wyoming bigots.
She knew she was wrong then, but didn't care.
I know it's popular to praise her now for not being crazy, but she is not a nice person. https://t.co/4ZmykHzKf6

It’s almost as if this is Cheney’s first go-around in politics, choosing to ignore how she has treated both sides of this argument in the past.
