|Hillbuzz? From reading the article I take it they are gay supporters of Hillary Clinton.|
Though I suspect that it is partly motivated by the fact that Joe Biden is such a ridiculous buffoon in comparison to Cheney.
However, they do say this:
"You [Cheney] also, we must remind the liberals of the LGBTQ community, were FAR MORE SUPPORTIVE of LGBTQ rights than any Vice President before you, Republican OR Democrat, and you have personally shown more willingness to advance our causes than your successor ever has — and you did this without a single word of thanks from ANYONE, including us."
"Go ahead and freak out in comments that we’ve gone and done it again, and are thanking the Bush Administration for keeping us safe all those years, but we just have a sinking feeling Hope, Change, and Joe Biden are setting us up for something awful before the summer’s out…and that very soon more than just those of us at Buzzquarters are going to realize what a great Vice President we had in Dick Cheney."

For those of you not in the know, the Cheneys have a lesbian daughter who they have stood buy and supported, even when some of the more feral parts of the Republican Party would have expected him to disown her.
Indeed, she and her partner were often invited as a couple to official White House functions.
I'm also aware of a gay White House staffer who expressed fears that he's lose his job. Cheney's response was to tell him that he would not allow that to happen.
Maybe we can start looking at the real Dick Cheney now and not the idiotic cartoon cutout character created by the media?
The piece ends:
He may be a crotchety, gruff, surly, wiseass who shoots people in the face — but he was OUR crotchety, gruff, surly, friend’s-face-shooting wiseass…with great emphasis on the WISE part.
Unlike some people, whose emphasis rests ELSEWHERE.
