The Lynne Cheney Sisters blog. Previously seen only in excerpts, and its reprinting refused consistently by the Vice-President's wife since its writing, Lynne Cheney's frontier-era lesbian romance novel is now available, in its entirety, for your reading pleasure.

Too bad an Alabama state representative wants books with gay characters banned and destroyed.

I read about half of the first chapter but I don't think I can handle any more. It's just so brilliant. Carcajou!

This sounds pretty illegal. How long before it is gone?

I hope it stays up long enough to be ogled -- I mean, um, read -- by everyone who did not care to shell out $500 on Amazon for a copy of this hot, notoriously queer, bodice-ripping (oooh, my day is made whenever I get to use that phrase) 19th century pile of romantic pulp from the demure wife of our V.P., and were ticked off by the political, hypocritical pressures which presumably prevented the book from being reissued. (Incidentally Sisters comes in at #2 on Bookfinder.com's Top 10 out of print books of 2004, right before Sex, by Madonna, although for some reason after John Kerry's The New Soldier.)

By the way, you didn't hear if from me, but her daughter is a l e s b i a n.... (Is this how you catch the gay?)

Can anyone point me right to the hot girl-on-girl action?

Can anyone point me to where there's enough cleanser, lye and bleach to scrub out my brain?

Apparently all the stock in every grocery store within 5 miles wasn't enough. 25 boxes of Brillo wasn't enough. There's still enough meat in my skull for memory and conscious thought. Is it ok to improvise tools for such a task? I think I can borrow my neighbor's rusty old shovel.

xmutex, there is no hot girl-on-girl action. It's a conspiracy. However, there's a-sprinklin' of dowdy girl-on-girl action.

Whatever it was that I just read can be best summed up as one long, beleaguered, exasperated sigh, followed by a round of contagious yawning. Somehow Lynn has confused "drama" with something so oppressively droll, laborious, stilted, hamfisted, and lifeless it sucks the essential, purified bodily juices out of any living thing within 10 miles of it. She wasn't even able to make lesbian nuns or lesbians in corsets exciting!

And great, now it's on the internet. I just know that thing is going to end up in the Lifetime Network's headquarters and cause a singularity of beige which annihilates the universe.

Why waste valuable time reading the shitty, melodramatic works of self-hating homos? I'd prefer to spend my short time on this planet by reading good writing, like something from Chabon or Sedaris.

The truly masochistic already have it as an eBook on their PDA...

Vidiot - that's hilarious. If also tragic. The whole LOL LYNN CHENEY WROTE ABOUT LESBIANS AND IT WAS BAD thing got kinda old a while ago, though.
