It's a Boy!

From Mombian:
Mary Cheney will be having a boy when she gives birth next month, said her father, Vice President Dick Cheney. He also said he’s “delighted” to be a grandparent for the sixth time, but reiterated that he thought same-sex relationship recognition should remain a state matter. “I obviously think it’s important for us as a society to be tolerant and respectful of whatever arrangements people enter into,” he added.
At least Dick Cheney and I can agree on one thing.

Tolerant and respectful? Ok, dickhead, how about affording my wife and I the same basic rights you and your frigid spouse enjoy? No, no, not the oil and Halliburton shares, nitwit. Just simple things we shouldn't have to fight for, like, oh, social security benefits, uncontested hospital visitations, right of survivorship...Oh, right, yes, you add the caveat that it's up to the States...Ever hear about the tyranny of the majority, dick? Yeah, in the basic tenets of your democracy, we should be protected from the discrimination your administration blatantly endorses. I'm thinking Federal legislation needs to be enacted.

Eh. Small steps. Of course, it is true that usually legislation precedes a change in overall acceptance, not the other way around. Hmm.
