The Wizard gave Dick Cheney a new heart in March.

If only he’d gotten courage as part of the deal.

On Friday, Cheney’s daughter, Mary, married her longtime partner, Heather Poe. The couple have two children.

And how did the staunchly conservative Lynne and Dick Cheney, bastions of the Republican right, react?

“Mary and Heather have been in a committed relationship for many years, and we are delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized,” the Cheney family said in a statement. “Mary and Heather and their children are very important and much-loved members of our family, and we wish them every happiness.”
