What Kerry Said...

"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."

How the rethuglican hatriots reacted:

"Kerry's third attack is the whole Mary Cheney thing. That's been hashed over enough. But remarkably, Kerry has not apologized. You use somebody's daughter to attack the father and his running mate."


Exactly how is that first statement an attack? Seriously? Kerry didn't even out her, she was a lesbian activist for years before this election cycle. Why are the rethugs so upset at this minor comment? What does Kerry have to apologize for? HE SAID NOTHING WRONG. Apparently, treating your opponent's daughter (who is actively involved in the campaign, and therefore a legit topic of discussion) with dignity and respect is an attack in whatever world the Bushies live in. If there is any sanity in this world, the Bushies won't be in power much longer.

Two weeks.
