  1. get this, from Fox News online:
    Ginn said she had no information on whether Mary Cheney and Poe, who moved from Colorado to Virginia a year ago to be closer to the rest of the Cheney family, will try to go somewhere to get married.
    because God forbid that the child be illegitimate.

  2. I’m sure that any minute now the Republican base will begin to howl.
    Any. Minute.

  3. America Blog has a whole bit about how repressive the laws in Virginia are for gays who want to set up a secure future for the child. Does the partner have rights? No. What about the rights of the father?
    Did they use invtro? What happened to the embros that weren’t implanted? Were they KILLED by the evil doctors who would rather save a blastocyst than a toddler in a burning fertlity clinic that was bombed?
    The mind boggles.

  4. I don’t even know where to begin with this one.
    Other than to say they are all a bunch of fucking hypocrites, that is.
    And what’s worse is that there are STILL going to be a bunch of “family values” voters and pundits out there who will find a way to spin this one.
    Assholes. All of them.

  5. Yes, a planned “illegitimate” child, who will be born to two lesbians who aren’t allowed to get married, and at least one of whom is a strong advocate for a party that thinks her homosexuality is an abomination.
    I hate Mary Cheney, I really do.

  6. from the linked story’s lede:

    Mary Cheney, the openly gay daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, is pregnant.

    And my first thought is, holy shit!Lynne’s pregnant?!

  7. I’m surprised by all of you.
    Didn’t you get the memo that no one is to talk of Mary’s…errr air quote-lifestyle-close air quote.
    It’s too upsetting to Lynne

  8. It’s on strict instructions from David Brooks, who’s afraid falling white birthrates will doom America.
    That said, hell, congratulations on the forthcoming blessed events. Are they registered at Babies R Us? Dick’s Sporting Goods? How young is too young to start learning to shoot lawyers in the face?
    Oh, God, the jokes just write themselves today.

  9. …whew. 37 with a newborn? I had my newborns when I was 23 and 25…
    Now… they’re both taller than I am.

  10. Article says older Cheney daughter is on leave from work after the birth of her fifth child. Lots of Cheney DNA out there. The plan for world domination is nearly complete.
