Shhh! Yes, She's Gay and Pregnant, But She's Dick Cheney's Daughter!

Jon Swift, a "reasonable conservative," has an amusing post about the gayphobic right's muted response to Mary Cheney's pregnancy:

The recent news that the Vice President's daughter Mary Cheney is going to have a baby has been criticized by many conservatives because she is unmarried and, according to John Kerry, a lesbian. But at The Corner they seem to have taken a vow of silence about the issue. Kathryn Jean Lopez, who has been quite vocal about her opposition to gay people having children or getting married or just generally annoying her with their ickiness, refuses to join the chorus of conservative voices attacking Cheney. "Unless Mary Cheney asks to be part of a political debate about this, there is no need to have a public discussion about her life," she writes.

Thank you, Chief! I was kind of pushed into it by the Blogger upgrade, but I do really like this new format, too. :-)
