Mary Cheney speaks out against effort to hinder marriage equality in Indiana

Mary Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, seems to be stepping up her efforts in speaking out for marriage equality via a recent speech against a proposed anti-marriage equality amendment in Indiana.

The irony here? Her sister, Liz Cheney, is running for a Senate seat in Congress against incumbent Mike Enzi and she has made public her opposition to marriage equality.

The larger irony? Many, if not all political observers and pundits, credit the huge push against marriage equality as a major factor for Bush and Cheney's 2004 election victory.

Now some folks will commence with their negative talk. I say "better late than never" when it comes to Mary Cheney being a vocal ally for marriage equality. There is a time and a place for all things and right now, attacking Mary Cheney for her past silence simply isn't wise.
