The one person that can make Dick Cheney seem human.



Mary Cheney doesn't agree with her daddy's party stand on gay and lesbian issues. Who in their right mind does?

But Mary loves her dad, and according to her, he and Lynne were quite the enlightened, liberal couple when she told them at age 16 that she is a lesbian.

Her new book "Now It's My Turn: A Daughter's Chronicle of Political Life," is just coming out. And by most accounts it's pretty good.

It's just a shame that her parents don't show the same respect for their country as they do for their family.


Alan Keyes refers to her as a "selfish hedonist"? No response. Gay-rights
activists lampoon her by putting her face on a milk carton ("Have you seen
me?")? No response. Her sexual orientation becomes fodder for a presidential
debate? No response.

Protesters show up in her hideout home town of Conifer, Colo., and plant a
"Bride of Satan" sign outside her house? Nope, not a word.

Until now, that is. Cheney's self-written story of life as a political
daughter, campaign strategist and happily partnered gay woman is out this week,
with a carefully planned media campaign surrounding its release. At 37, she's
trying out the Washington life -- swapping snowboarding in the Rockies for
commuting on the Dulles Toll Road -- and heading out on the publicity trail
while longtime partner Heather Poe rips up pink shag carpet in their new Great
Falls home and consults with Lynne Cheney, Mary's mom, about redecorating
plans.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
