In 2004, John Kerry said this about Dick Cheney’s daughter:
“We’re all God’s children, Bob, 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.”
Cheney responded thusly:
“You saw a man who will do and say anything to get elected, and I am not just speaking as a father here, although I am a pretty angry father,” Cheney said.
Today, this was said:
Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America described the pregnancy as “unconscionable.”
“It’s very disappointing that a celebrity couple like this would deliberately bring into the world a child that will never have a father,” said Crouse, a senior fellow at the group’s think tank. “They are encouraging people who don’t have the advantages they have.”
The vice president’s office declined to elaborate on the circumstances of Mary Cheney’s pregnancy.
I have learned a very powerful lesson about Dick Cheney today. Say whatever nasty things you want about him or his family, but don’t try and say anything nice or god forbid try to be his friend. If you’re lucky he’ll just say some nasty things about you to the press, if you’re not lucky he may shoot you!
