A Tale of Two Cheneys

According to a Drudge Report flash, Vice President Dick Cheney was super cool when his daughter, Mary, came out to him as a lesbian back when she was in junior high (update: that should say "when she was a junior in high school"). His words "were exactly the ones that I wanted to hear: 'You're my daughter, and I love you, and I just want you to be happy.'"

He went on to add, "just as long as being 'happy' doesn't include silly things like the right to marry or serve in the armed forces—or civil rights. Hey, I wasn't in the army either."

Drudge's article, which previews the forthcoming issue of Vanity Fair, also contains this fascinating and disturbing detail: "Cheney travels with a chemical-biological suit at all times." It's believed that the suit is used to protect the vice president from the stench of hypocrisy that emanates from his public persona.
