Was it not her choice to remain silent? In any case, it was not up to a mealy-mouthed politician to "out her" in order to get a tawdry advantage.

Did the liberal press find another lesbian they could hate as bad as Tammy Bruce? You're a target now Mary. Please try to remember who put the bullseye on you.

She was great on Larry King Live the other night. Mannerisms of the VP were amazing. Very well spoken.

"I understand that she loves her father, but her loyalty to his career comes at a tremendous cost to millions of gay Americans who don't hold a fraction of the rights of other Americans."

Don't hold a fraction of the rights? Jeez, these people ARE dramatic...

Yes, I really liked her. Total class act.

Larry was his usual clueless self, of course.

"Mary Cheney writes that she was "furious" when
John Kerry mentioned her sexuality during a 2004 presidential debate."

They say the liberals don't just go after you, they go after your whole family.

I will give $500 to anyone who can name three rights homosexuals don't have that heterosexuals do.

I agree with you. I think that is exactly what the libs believe. Although I don't agree with her on this, but don't bash her. I would rather have 1000000 Mary's instead of these liberals.

I don't know. If I were gay and in a relationship, why not give power of attorney to my lover, leave a will and make sure all items are in order at my time of death. Oh, and of course, if sperm donor children are involved, the same thing. Now, what rights other than property rights upon marriage between a man and a woman have I missed. Oh, please don't through health benefits into the whole mess. You barely save anything married or single from company 'group' benefits anyway.

Heterosexual in Florida. Just D@mn!

Sadly, they do get taken seriously. In fact, they are largely dictating public policy right now.

When I stop laughing and scrape the hyperbole off my screen from that ridiculous statement, I'll comment.

Much as I hate the left, most media people are something even worse. Oh they are liberals and leftists alright, but mostly they are hacks devoted to the democrat party.

Which means they have no principles, just partisan agenda and they will screw you and the country to get a political advantage. In short, they are exactly what they constantly accuse republicans of being - partisan.

But is that number growing or shrinking? I guess on the West coast and East coast it gets a lot of play...but everywhere else...I don't know. Here in Texas the Amendment to the Constitution defining marriage as that between a man and a woman only saw opposition from one county...and weak opposition at that.

OK, you're basically talking about rights associated with marriage, which some companies provide anyway through domestic partner benefits. So that's really one thing. To say "a fraction of the rights"? A little over the top.

No they're not, except in a couple states. We should realize our victories when we get them.

For me, if a person is right about something, then they are right about that one thing. If they are wrong about something else, then they are wrong about that.

I appreciate Tammy's support on the issues that we agree about, and will oppose her on those that I don't. Liberals are the one for whom "politics is personal"

I think we're agree to agree. All the b*tching about "all we want is equal rights" is ridiculous. They can have everything they want legally if they pursue correctly. I'm just over this hysterical mantra from the gay community. Get over yourselves and your sexual preferences. Most of us don't care. It's your life and your destiny.

Stay our of my life and I'll stay out of yours.

You are not alone.

Pray for me here in New Orleans as these people are the most incompetent and irresponsible people in the world.

And yes, the vast majority are proud democrats...

The New Orleans/Louisiana democrats are most competent people in the world... when it comes to stealing money. I would be amazed if $1 out of $3 federal rebuilding money ever makes it to "Nawlins."

No, you misunderstand me. I do not approve of homosexuality, although I don't care what people do privately. That's not right, either. I do care, but it's none of my business. They can take it up with God.

But, if a person is a lesbian, and still supports some conservative positions, then I welcome their support on those issues. That does not mean that I will support them on issues I disagree with.

An example from the other side, Evangelical Christians are the stoutest supporters of Israel outside the Jewish community, and far stouter than many in it. Some liberal Jewish leaders have begun to recognize that lately. And some have spoken out. "Accept the evangelical support for Israel, but do not give up your liberal Jewish positions", they say.

Call it an alliance of convenience. When Tammy is on my side of an issue, fine. When she is not, I oppose her.

The left uses the homosexuals just like the old Communists used to use the Jews. Just another group of useful idiots with a "special interest" to help further the revolution. Once the revolution is safely in power....
