republican parents have family problems, too
"Cheney's unfit-to-be-a-mother, lesbian daughter to bear a bastard out of wedlock"
That's the kind of crap that many theocrats are saying or thinking about Mary Cheney. Wonderfully illustrated by Tom Toles. Personally, I couldn't care less -- good luck to her and her partner. But her father's friends won't approve, even if the old man is supportive.
But you have to wonder whether the de facto vice president's attitude towards gays wouldn't have been quite different if Mary had turned out straight... Is Dick Cheney really tolerant about gays, or is he just willing to put it aside to support his own flesh and blood?
Boo hoo about who?
It's bizarre that Papa Bush had his crying jag in public. Crying about Jeb, who is a towering paragon of brains and accomplishment compared to brothers George W., (you know, the guy who invaded Iraq), Neil (who thought that beautiful strange women coming to his hotel door were just really friendly, not hookers paid for by business associates), and Marvin, so bad at business that even being a Bush isn't enough to make him a success at anything, is clearly crying about the WRONG kid.
Think it's mean to pick on the President's family? Did you think so when crude jokes about Hillary and Chelsea Clinton were circulating? If so, you're consistent and that's good. If not, you're a hypocrite.
