Heather has two half mommies

Mary Cheney, the vice president's openly gay daughter, is pregnant.

I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in. The vice president of the United States is openly gay and will give birth soon. Strangely enough she hasn’t been in contact with our local Rainbow Families DC gay parenting group.

Living in Virginia even she can’t escape the harsh bigotry of Republicans. They’ve worked in that state to ensure that gays and lesbians will receive no equal rights. Miss Cheney’s partner will find herself quite invisible in the eyes of the legislature. I’m sure they’ll be able to afford the best lawyers to bang together some protections but like the rest of us they’ll see baby, it’s cold outside.

Will her maternal instincts kick in? Will she now step up for gay rights and family protections?

Cheney has described her relationship with Poe -- whom she took to last year's White House dinner honoring Prince Charles and Camilla -- as a marriage. You can’t have it both ways Mary. Heather’s not your wife. She’s not the mother of your daughter according to your party. If you want to claim the reward you’ve got to stand with us.

You are welcome to join us and other proud gay families at the next social gathering. I think you’re going to find that it’s a much warmer climate for your child than what you’re about to experience.

I commented on Joe.My.God yesterday that Mary and Miz Poe are likely to get nothing but praise, support, and warm well wishes from Dick, Lynne, Dubya, and Laura. Then they'll all get on the teevee and decry the threat that we gays pose to a God-fearing society.

And while hiccupping the baby, Mary will sweetly chirp, "Oh well ... that's just politics."

Grrr. I hate them all.

The silly bitch needs to start voting Democrat like all the other sensible people in the USA.
