Every so often, a member of the Cheney family has to publicly utter something patently off-the-mark, lest we all forget what truly awful people they are. This time, it was Mary Cheney's turn at bat and, in true-to-her-family form, she pretty much knocked it out of the ballpark of asininity.

Mary Cheney, Here's Why Drag and Blackface Are Different (VIDEO)

Next time someone asks why drag is OK and blackface isn't, you can tell them that drag is an expression of yourself, whereas blackface is an attack on someone else; blackface reinforces an imbalance of power, whereas drag disassembles an imbalance of power; blackface is a relic, whereas drag is what we all do, every day, every time we put on clothes.

Dear Mary Cheney: Here Are Reasons Why Drag Is Socially Acceptable and Blackface Is Not

Drag is a celebration. Drag is an attitude. Characterizing drag queens as "bitchy, catty, dumb, slutty" is reductive and insulting. The female persona created by a drag queen is robust, powerful, enduring. She has moxie, smarts, humor and beauty.

Power going out at the Super Bowl; Maker's Mark announcing its plans to dilute its whiskey; the woman who hid under her desk to avoid a TV reporter; Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend and a Canadian mayor's crack-laced meltdown. All great, but not Sponge-worthy.

Dick Cheney Thrust Into 'King Lear'

Political dramas in the nation's capital usually partake more of Scandal or SNL than of Shakespeare, but we may need the Bard's unrivaled eye for profound family discord to tell the full story of the Cheneys right now. There are more than a few similarities between former Vice President Dick Cheney and King Lear: old men obsessed with the loss of power, attempting to pass their kingdoms on to ambitious daughters, each served by a loyal Fool for whom he cared to a pitiable degree. Cheney's even had the (White House) court jester's name of "Scooter." Like Lear, Dick Cheney seems destined to watch his family torn apart by his daughters' ambitions and beliefs -- and his own hubris.
