Cheney's own porn bites her in the ass [VIDEO]

The short version: In the midst of a bitter campaign between Republican George Allen and Democrat Jim Webb in Virginia, Allen decided to go the "values" route and attacked Jim Webb's books for their "pornographic" content. One of those books, it should be noted, is on the Marines recommended reading list!

The Dems put out a press release noting that the Veep's wife, Lynne Cheney, had written a porn novel of her own, Sisters, which "featured a lesbian love affair, brothels and attempted rapes."

When the second lady was confronted with this on Wolf Blitzer's show, she proceeded to freak out and attack CNN's coverage, laughably criticizing the network for airing a tape of a propaganda video which they labeled, appropriately, a propaganda video. Cheney then attacked Blitzer's patriotism, which Melissa addresses HERE (definitely worth the read).

The video above shows that, in addition to questioning Blitzer's patriotism, Cheney evades claims that her book Sisters does not include salacious content. You can decide for yourself:
