Kerry Didn't Gay-Bait - He used Mary Cheney to shame Bush for gay-baiting.

Dick and Lynne Cheney claim to be outraged that John Kerry mentioned their daughter Mary's sexual orientation (she's gay) in the Oct. 13 debate. Immediately after the debate, Lynne said it was a 'cheap and tawdry political trick.' Her outrage was spontaneous and therefore probably sincere. But the vice president, who spoke at the same press availability, glided past the subject and instead expostulated on the 'whale of a job' the president had done and Kerry's poor record on defense. That suggests to me that Cheney wasn't outraged at all"
