Dick still loves Mary

Drudge is reporting that in her new memoir, Now It’s My Turn, Mary Cheney says that “when she told her parents she was gay, the first words out of her father’s mouth ‘were exactly the ones that I wanted to hear: You’re my daughter, and I love you, and I just want you to be happy.’”

Frankly, that makes his willingness to sit atop a platform openly hostile toward gays even more disgusting.

Of course, I’d rather fight tooth and nail against the GOP’s active attempt to make the LGBT community second-class citizens for a hundred years than be Dick Cheney’s daughter for even one second—and I believe I’d feel the same even if I were a lesbian, maybe even more so.
