Mary Cheney's baby shower, part 2
A few weeks ago I did a one-panel cartoon, "Mary Cheney's Baby Shower," imagining President Bush showing up to Mary Cheney's baby shower with the "gift" of a husband, with her partner Heather Poe sitting right there, quite annoyed. Since then:
- Prominent social conservative James Dobson publicly attacked Mary Cheney in a piece in Time magazine ("Two Mommies is One Too Many").
- In a post-SOTU interview, Wolf Blitzer asked Dick Cheney what he thought of Dobson's remarks, to which Cheney growled that Blitzer was "out of line."
- Mary Cheney spoke at Barnard, claiming the whole thing was a "non-political" issue. She vehemently defended same-sex parenting, and attacked Dobson's fake science claims about what is best for children. But she also attacked Wolf Blitzer for asking her father about the same thing. And she failed to mention that the president she so vigorously campaigned for feels pretty much the same way as Dobson about gay families.
