Apparently Lynne Cheney has a problem with Kerry discussing her daughter's sexuality. What she really means to say, though, is that she has a problem with her daughter's sexuality. Kerry was probably trying to get under the Bush-Cheney skin, but I don’t think it was over the line. On someone’s blog, I read the argument that if Cheney’s daughter was adopted or parapalegic and the discussion was about either of those things, nobody would have considered it over the line. I think that is a good point. Mary has been out for over ten years, she has worked as a gay and lesbian liason for major corporations (and campaigns), and she went onto the stage with her partner at the VP debate. Kerry’s comment shouldn’t have been a surprise to anybody.
