Dick Disagrees With Lynne Cheney

(AP) On CNN's Late Edition, Lynne Cheney, the vice president's wife and mother of a lesbian, said Sunday that states should have the final say over the legal status of personal relationships. That stand puts her at odds with the vice president on the need for the constitutional amendment now under debate in the Senate that effectively would ban gay marriage.
President Bush and VP Dick may have had this conversation afterward:
George: She said WHAT?
Dick: That states should have the final word.
George: But wouldn't that give states more power? (Pass the bananas.)
Dick: For that particular decision, maybe. (Want me to peel it for you?)
George: But I thought we wanted to change the constitution so that the federal government had more power. (Yeah, peel it and could you cut it into bite-sized portions and feed it to me?)
Dick: Well, big picture, that's what we want. But this is a minor obstacle. (Here comes the choo choo, open the tunnel!)
George: (Mmph umph, thanks.) I just don't like women who get uppity and disagree with their husbands. God put the man in charge, ya know. (More, please.)
Dick: She has a right to her opinion. Our daughter's a lesbian afterall, and a mother needs to show some support for her daughter. (Open the hangar, here comes the airplane!)
George: (Mmph umph, thanks.) Well, as long as she doesn't start advocating gay rights, or contest our stance on prayer in school. (Mmm that was good.)
Dick: Don't worry, she knows her place. (Want some milk?)

Be careful, Lynne, or else Georgie-boy will distance himself from you by giving you a nickname, like Lynne-girl or Loopie-Lynnie.
