'Tis the season of Mary and her child. However, in the case of Mary Cheney, this will hardly be an immaculate conception.
It was hard not to enjoy a chuckle when hearing the news that the poster child for same-sex cowardice and hypocrisy, Mary Cheney, was going to be having a child with her lesbian partner of 15 years, Heather Poe.
This target is way too easy
In an earlier blog post I celebrated the fact that nobody was buying this first-class fraud's autobiography, "Now It's My Turn."
Anything you ever wanted to know about the self-absorption of Mary Cheney could be found during the Bush re-election campaign. Confronted by a new wave of homophobia, where state upon state added anti-gay marriage initiatives to the ballot as a lure to trample the Dems by stomping on the backs of gays and lesbians, Mary became enraged. Unfortunately, not by the bigots that have sought to brand gay relationships as evil and undeserving of spousal and parental protection.
No, Mary Cheney was enraged that John Edwards would dare to mention the fact that she was a lesbian. It was not an outing, she had already served as an openly gay liason to the gay community for a beleagured Coors Brewing Company. Yet, Cheney and the rest of her loathsome family, turned on the phony dramatics to portray themselves as alleged victims of dirty politics.
This disgusting human being did her damnedest to help re-elect a man, who has made it abundantly clear that he feels gays and lesbians are second-class American citizens, and whose family units have absolutely no value. The party her father is proud to represent would truly have no qualms in officially codifying discrimination against her by amending the Constitution.
With friends like these...
So how are all her dad's buddies greeting this newfound revelation of lesbian motherhood? How is the welcome wagon treating old Mary?
Concerned Women for America are most certainly 'concerned' about her. According to AP
"Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America described the pregnancy as 'unconscionable'. 'It’s very disappointing that a celebrity couple like this would deliberately bring into the world a child that will never have a father,' said Crouse. 'They are encouraging people who don’t have the advantages they have.'”How about that Ms. Cheney? I guess that rules out the CWA sending you a bassinet.
Then there's Carrie Gordon Earll from Focus On The Family. Earll feels the pregnancy is not such a terrific thought:
"'Just because you can conceive a child outside a one-woman, one-man marriage doesn't mean it's a good idea,' said. 'Love can't replace a mother and a father.'"Something tells me that Earll may have to skip the baby shower.
It will be interesting to observe comments from these pious purveyors of morality in the coming days. I hope Ms. Cheney gets a long, hard look at the people she has chosen to cast her lot with.
Tea with Ann Coulter is probably out of the question.
