Today's Idiocy From The Corner


...If Mrs Edwards is being obtuse, that's nothing compared with the 'senior Kerry aide' also quoted in the story. Kerry's comments were not inappropriate, she said. "The woman is in her thirties. She's public about her sexuality. It was brought up in the last debate. So, what the hell?"

"It was brought up in the last debate." Brought up by whom, I wonder.

BY THE FUCKING MODERATOR, dumbass. Also note: Cheney talked about the issue at a town hall meeting on the stump about a month ago. Mary Cheney is 1) out with a partner for the last 6+ years at least 2) a member of her father's campaign and 3) responsible for GAY OUTREACH FOR THE CAMPAIGN.

And, Mrs. Cheney, why are you so offended now when John Kerry says something nice about you and your daughter but you had nothing to say when a member of your own party called her a "selfish hedonist" during the Republican Convention?


"Lynne and I have a gay daughter, so it's an issue that our family is very familiar with. ... With respect to the question of relationships, my general view is that freedom means freedom for everyone. People ought to be able to free -- ought to be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to."
