Lynne Cheney Tells Some
Lynne Cheney is celebrating the end of her successful tour of duty as America's Second-Most-Loathed Cheney by writing a memoir. So she's hitting the tv circuit and telling charming stories about her whirlwind high school romance with Vice President Ernst "Dick" Blofeld. He dumped her for a cheerleader in senior year! Then Lynne's grandma bought her a "black lace sheath dress" which apparently convinced Dick that this one would put out so he went back to her and then they got married and went on to the destroy the nation for forty years. Lynne also wants to dispel some rumors!
As the wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, Lynne Cheney is the nation's second lady. But many people see her husband's title as just a technicality and believe that he really is the man running the country, not President Bush.
"Well, that's not the case," she told Sunday Morning correspondent Rita Braver. "And Dick would be the first to tell you that."
See? Lynne's in charge, guys.
(NB: A friend once told us, "Dick's not the mean one in that relationship," which has unsettled us to think about for like a year now.)
Also she mentions gay people, once, and how things were very hard for gay kids in Casper, Wyoming back in the day. Thankfully, Lynne is pretty sure "society has evolved" and now things are much peachier for gay teens in rural Wyoming, thanks in part to the policies and moral campaigns of Lynne's party.
Update: Oh right, the fawning profile was done by the wife of the dude who packaged and sold the book btw. Way to go CBS!
