The article quoted below speaks for itself. No comment necessary (though I highlighted one paragraph):


By Tom Vanden Brook, USA TODAY

Vice President Cheney and his wife reacted angrily to John Kerry mentioning their lesbian daughter during the final presidential debate, a reference that touched off a round of accusations Thursday.

Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee, said his comments were meant to be positive about families with gay children.

The Cheneys saw it differently.

"You saw a man who will do and say anything to get elected, and I am not just speaking as a father here, although I am a pretty angry father," Cheney said at a rally in Fort Myers, Fla.

During Wednesday's debate, Kerry referred to Mary Cheney when asked whether homosexuality is a choice. Mary Cheney, who is openly gay, runs operations in the vice president's campaign office.

"We're all God's children," Kerry said. "And I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was. She's being who she was born as. I think if you talk to anybody, it's not a choice."

After the debate, Lynne Cheney ripped Kerry. "This is not a good man," she said. "Of course, I am speaking as a mom, and a pretty indignant mom. ... What a cheap and tawdry political trick."

Kerry said Thursday that he meant no offense.

"I love my daughters. They love their daughter. I was trying to say something positive about the way strong families deal with the issue," he said in a statement.
