The Immaculate Conception: The Virgin Mary (Cheney)
Occasionally, my boss will bring his baby daughter to work with him. Admittedly, she's really cute. For the record, I like babies and toddlers, I think they're adorable, but I'm notoriously bad with kids. I merely looked at her, and she started crying, causing a co-worker to pick her up and say, "Oh come on, Amanda's not that scary." Ha HA.
For a ridiculous amount of time, my roommate would badger me about having kids. A true traditionalist, it's like she can't imagine someone's life without marriage and bratty, loud children running around. Personally, I think the best part about being gay is that you don't have to answer the badgering questions from people, most often referring to your biological clock. I can spend my life traveling around the world, being totally selfish, and counting my boat loads of money that I'll have since I won't have to spend it on my children. But, she persisted. Finally, I told her that the only way I'd have kids was if her boyfriend provided the sperm for me to get artificially inseminated. That shut her up real quick.
Recently, America has stumbled upon its own Christmas miracle.
Vice President Dick Cheney's high-profile lesbian daughter, Mary, announced that she's pregnant, and plans to raise the child with her long-time partner, Heather Poe. I don't think I'm the only one who thinks it's ironically hilarious that the daughter of the Vice President of such an oppressive administration on behalf of gays is gay herself and having a kid in a country that doesn't give her or her partner the right to marry.
You'd almost feel sorry for Mary until you took stock in the fact that she helped usher in an administration that fundamentally opposes giving out those rights. Cheney, who stepped into the limelight back in 2004 when she worked on Bush 2004 re-election campaign, began to draw heat for being an out lesbian and still supporting and campaigning a ticket that opposed rights for gay people (see DearMary.com).
Not an unreasonable person, I can see how dicey it could get when choosing between your father and your politics, but now with our VP's prospective grandkid in question, what does this mean for the Bush Administration's politics? Will "compassionate conservativism" stick around once our Vice President is playing granddaddy to a lesbian couple's kid?
Maybe it will, or maybe he'll just shoot someone. Who knows.
