Mary Cheney and Partner About to Be Moms
A story that would have boggled the mind not very long ago:
Mary Cheney, the vice president’s openly gay daughter, is pregnant. She and her partner of 15 years, Heather Poe, are “ecstatic” about the baby, due in late spring, said a source close to the couple.
Today, it’s relegated to page C3.
UPDATE: Andrew Sullivan entitles his post on the matter “James Dobson’s Nightmare” and observes,
There is surely coming a point at which the sheer dissonance between what the GOP base believes and the way even the most conservative vice-president in modern times deals with the reality of his own family must surely prompt some kind of Republican adjustment.
You cannot be a party that sees gay love, marriage and parenthood as the work of Satan and have a vice-presidential family that is busy building a lesbian family as an integral part of it.
He’s right, of course.
