Vice President Cheneys daughter is a lesbian


Well if they enrolled her in my 'special class' this would be an outright lie.

Seriously everybody should have known this tidbit of info several months or years ago!!

At least all the way back to the RNC when DICK CHENEY (Her Dad) SAID IT RIGHT ON TV.

Still think they should enroll her in my 'special class'.

Personally, as a Kerry supporter (I'll preface this with that statement) I though Kerry's bringing up Cheney's lesbian daughter was wrong, stupid, iditotic, whatever. You don't support homosexual rights by pointing at your opponents homosexual releatives.

And I sure she's just loving all this wonderful attention she's got from the press.........right.........

You are both right about this being old news and I agree that it is really stupid to keep bringing it up. With all the other important issues to discuss why waste time rehashing who's gay?

First it was John Edwards making sure America knew that Dick Cheney had a lesbian daughter.

Then, last night, for those of you who had NO IDEA that Dick Cheney had a lesbian daughter, John Kerry reiterated that fact.

Public service announcement, or the cheesiest politic low blow in the history of Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates?

Well, according to post-debate comments from Kerry's campaign manager, Cheney's daughter's sexuality is "fair game".

So I don't want to hear from you leftie sheep that Kerry was NOT using cheap political tricks.

Cheney's daughter's sexual preference first came up in 2000 in the first election campaign. It wasn't the Democrats who brought it up here. It was the dispute over the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and Constitutional Amendment. Lynn Cheney spoke about it when she said that the states and not the federal governmnent should decide. She was asked because Dick Cheney said he "supported the President" on a Constitutional Amendment. Then, when the wife came out and said she was against the Amendment he backpedalled saying that he was not in favor personally of the Amendment but would support it anyway. I think this is known as:

FLIP FLOPPING!

I think it was an attempt by Kerry to point that out again.

Okay, here's what Andrew Sullivan thought about this. Sullivan is a Republican, he's gay, he supported Bush in 2000 and supported the war in Iraq:
I keep getting emails asserting that Kerry's mentioning of Mary Cheney is somehow offensive or gratuitous or a "low blow". Huh? Mary Cheney is out of the closet and a member, with her partner, of the vice-president's family. That's a public fact. No one's privacy is being invaded by mentioning this. When Kerry cites Bush's wife or daughters, no one says it's a "low blow." The double standards are entirely a function of people's lingering prejudice against gay people. And by mentioning it, Kerry showed something important. This issue is not an abstract one. It's a concrete, human and real one. It affects many families, and Bush has decided to use this cynically as a divisive weapon in an election campaign. He deserves to be held to account for this - and how much more effective than showing a real person whose relationship and dignity he has attacked and minimized? Does this makes Bush's base uncomfortable? Well, good. It's about time they were made uncomfortable in their acquiescence to discrimination. Does it make Bush uncomfortable? Even better. His decision to bar gay couples from having any protections for their relationships in the constitution is not just a direct attack on the family member of the vice-president. It's an attack on all families with gay members - and on the family as an institution. That's a central issue in this campaign, a key indictment of Bush's record and more than relevant to any debate. For four years, this president has tried to make gay people invisible, to avoid any mention of us, to pretend we don't exist. Well, we do. Right in front of him.

No, it is known as not putting personal opinion in the way of professional opinion.  He has said many times that he supports the President.  Just as Kerry stated that his Catholic beliefs do not affect his political Pro-choice stance, Cheney's lesbian daughter does not affect his political stance on gay marriage.  I'm personally Pro-Life, but I support Pro-Choice for the general community.  Does that make me a flip-flopper?

Stepping outside debates about whether it was wrong for Kerry to bring it up. I will say that I doubt it'll be much of an issue. People only care about these things when they fit some previous concern regarding the candidate. Swing voters are concerned that Kerry is wishy washy and boring, but no one -- including Bush -- has been claiming Kerry's insensitive. My prediction: this won't get any traction and it's a mistake if the Bush campaign focuses on this instead of focusing on their standard attacks against Kerry.

For the record, I also said the Bush people were making a tactical mistake to focus on Kerry's "global test" comment -- because I predicted it wouldn't gain any traction for the same reasons -- and I think the polls have validated my take on this.

Did Kerry also bring up Bush's daughters in the first debate?

Are you married? I think not, otherwise you would know exactly what the VP was doing.
