See Chris, I'd have accepted your version had the eccentric Uncle Arv not mispronounced the dog's breed as a "BAGEL." Why would Mrs. Cheney volunteer that information if she didn't think maybe Uncle Arv had a way of mispronouncing names? Bottom line, though, along with everybody else, I'll take Liz's pronunciation with dig: "And it has been quite sometime, maybe ever since Chris Matthews was at any Cheney family events." And Chris, you must know how annoying your mispronunciation of Cheney's name is to our assaulted ears, however endearing your Philly accent.WILLIE GEIST: We need to set the record straight on something. Chris Matthews says it's pronounced "Chee-ney" and the family pronounces it that way. Liz Chaney, how do you pronounce your last name?
LIZ CHENEY: I pronounce it Chay-ney. And it has been quite sometime, maybe ever since Chris Matthews was at any Cheney family events.
WILLIE GEIST: He doesn't get those invitations? All right, there it is, Chris. Sorry, it's Chay-ney.

Memo To Chris: Buy A Clue, It's Pronounced ...
