Kerry's Meanness Becomes Apparent

WASHINGTON (AFP) - John Kerry has come under renewed criticism for raising the case of Mary Cheney, the lesbian daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, during a presidential debate.

Five days after making the comment, Kerry remained at the centre of a media controversy for highlighting Cheney's sexual orientation.

Political talk shows, newspaper commentators and an opinion poll have all kept the gay comment in the public. Democrats have bravely called it a storm in a political teacup and Kerry's campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill has said Cheney's daughter is "fair game".

According to a Washington Post poll, 64 percent of electors believe Kerry made a mistake. An ABC New poll gave a similar result.
I watched The McLauglin Group on Sunday and witnessed Eleanor Clift say that this was very bad for Democrats. This was the first time I have ever heard her admit anything was bad for Democrats (other than Republicans) in over 29 years. I also watched the other leftist, who is normally quite calm, scream over Tony Blankley saying that Republicans are "people who hate lesbians."
