Lynn Cheney, Just Shut the Fuck up.
Lynn Cheney got up in arms because John Kerry used their lesbian daughter Mary in his debate reply to a specific question the moderator asked about homosexuality.
As an example of gayness not being a choice people make, Kerry said, "We're all God's children, and I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was. She's being who she was born as. I think if you talk to anybody, it's not a choice."
Dick Cheney ignored the context and said Kerry's remark proves, "he'll do and say anything it takes to get elected."
Lynn said of Kerry, "This is not a good man. What a cheap and tawdry political trick."
If it was Kerry who had the dyke daughter instead of Cheney, the GOP would be exploiting it as an example of "the rampant, immoral perversion" running in Kerry's immediate family.
I can just hear it: "Elect John Kerry and his lesbian daughter will be spending weekends in the White House, using a dildo to simulate heterosexual intercourse with her lesbian lover in the Lincoln bedroom."
The Bush crowd started the gay hate debate with that ridiculous plan to amend the constitution to specifically ban gay marriage.
They brought it up knowing Cheney's kid was gay, so they should have expected her orientation to become part of the topic, especially since she works for the damn Bush Cheney reelection campaign.
Even if Kerry did specifically mention Mary Cheney just to remind Bush's Bible thumping fans what hypocrites their candidates are, so what? If the truth hurts, just do what the Bush GOP's always do: deny, blame, name-call and smear.
Lynn Cheney is as phony as the rest of those bastards.
It was okay for her to pander to voyeuristic readers by titillating them with soft core lesbian porn in the novelette she published years ago.
It was okay for the White House to ban a second edition being published to spare the truth from the fundamentalists lemmings who think their candidates are Such Model Christians.
It is okay for the Bush Cheney campaign to pay Mary Cheney more than $100,000 a year, even though at least some the funds for her salary came from the Bible thumpers' contributions.
But it was not okay for Kerry to mention her name in a most tolerant manner when the debate topic turned to homosexuality? Give me a break.
