Who Cares?

You know what? Until a few days ago I had no idea that Dick Cheney's daughter is a lesbian. It's not the sort of information that finds it's way over to this side of the pond. In fact, I had no idea he had a daughter. Didn't really care, either. None of my damned business, the way I see it.

Is she hot? Nah, probably not. The idea of lesbians is often much more appealing than the reality. You very rarely see a really good looking lesbian. Except in porn, of course, but those people'd do anything. Anyway, sorry to wander off track for a minute. Thinking about lesbians often does that to me. I hope you haven't lost too much respect for me.

Aaaanyway... Mary Cheney. I just don't understand all this drama. Tell me if I'm getting this wrong, but I understand that it was common knowledge that she's gay, so it isn't exactly shock news. Indeed, I hear that Cheney himself has mentioned it himself in a professional capacity in the past, so Cheney can't claim that it's a taboo subject. And if you actually listen to the comment it sounds a lot like it wasn't even a barbed comment. He just used Mary Cheney as an example.

And so, it comes down to the fact that we're coming close to the last fortnight and the mud-slinging has reached the point at which any comment on any subject made by absolutely anyone vaguely connected to either party is met by shock! and disgust! and oh my GOD, I can't believe that he/she could say that! It just goes to show how little the members of the Republican/Democratic party care about what matters to middle America. I bet they're going to club some seals later while stealing oil and outsourcing your job. Vote for me, by the way.

Hopefully this story'll be consigned to the archives of most blogs in a couple of days, never to be seen again. In the meantime if you're interested you can read more here, here, here and here.
