Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Cheney


John (no relation) at AMERICAblog points out some more hypocrisy from the Administration. This time it's about the Administration and Lynn Cheney's lack of outrage when Evangelical Christians write things like this:
Joe Glover, president of the Family Policy Network, has worked tirelessly for family values, including the fight against legalized homosexual "marriage." He says it was conservative Christians who put the president back in office and who held to the belief that the president shared their views. But Glover says the day after the election, that all seemed to go out the window. "The day after George Bush was elected president again, because of this morals revolution taking place in our country, he allows his vice president to not only put his lesbian daughter on the platform, but to bring her lesbian 'partner' up on the stage with him," Glover says. "It almost seems to be a slap in the face from the get-go against the very conservatives that re-elected the president at a time when he ought to paying them some homage and respect." Glover says the Cheney daughter's open flaunting of her homosexuality is the antithesis of what the administration claims to stand for -- and that the post-election display sends a mixed message to Bush supporters.
All John Kerry did was point out what everyone already knew, and yet he was rhetorically crucified from everyone on the Right, including the Vice President and his family. Family values, my ass. I really hope that hypocrisy like this will be the downfall of the Evangelical Christians' increasing influence.
