Outing and Pouting 

We have not been able to confirm this yet, but a trusted friend reports that Mary Cheney, the vice president's daughter, has been badmouthing us on the campaign trail:
Now, I did have a chance to assess the King of Zembla once more. And the only thing I could conclude is this is not a good king. This is not a good king. And of course, I am speaking as a daughter and a pretty indignant daughter. This is not a good king -- what a cheap and tawdry political trick. (Applause)
All this because we happened to mention in passing that her mom, Lynne Cheney, writes lesbian novels. (Okay, so we mentioned it twice.)

We have to say, we just don't understand the professions of outrage. Everyone knows that Ms. Cheney's mother writes lesbian novels. Is she ashamed of the fact that her mother writes lesbian novels? Are we all supposed to pretend that her mother doesn't write lesbian novels?

We think it's a fine thing that her mother writes lesbian novels, and we unequivocally support her right to do so!


UPDATE: Still awaiting the Cheney camp's moral assessment of Alan Keyes.
