Much ado about Mary Cheney

She's a Lesbian who has long since been out of the closet, in fact she even authored a book that reportedly has some steamy same sex stuff in it (heaven forfend). I did not happen to catch her mothers outrage over the fact that Kerry would use Mary as an example, in his answer to a question about whether homosexuality was a choice or not. From ABCNews via Atrios. Here is what Lynne said:
LYNNE CHENEY AT POST-DEBATE RALLY: "The only thing I could conclude is that this is not a good man. This is not a good man. And, of course, I'm speaking as a mom. And a pretty indignant one. This is not a good man. What a cheap and tawdry political trick."
Well indignant mom, you would happen to be an authority when it comes to tawdry political stunts, now, wouldn't you. In fact the Iraq war is probably the tawdriest of all political tricks. This administration married policy to political hackery as a matter of course. Lets see what her handsome man has to say (and you thought that irony was dead).
DICK CHENEY TO NBC AFFILIATE WHO: "I would have said Sen. Kerry was out of line to bring my daughter into it. I thought it was totally inappropriate."
Out of line? Totally inappropriate? Give us a break sir, embracing a campaign built on a foundation of shit flinging and dirty tricks. Sorry if you had a few feverish fundies out there who were not as yet clued in to the gay elephant in the living room. And the way you treated her and her partner during you're convention, keeping them off the podium, when the rest of the family proudly took the stage after your speech, that sir, was out of line.
