I Compliment You Because You're Fair Game

Tammy Bruce gives John Kerry what for in a column entitled "Mary Cheney Outs John Kerry".

Mary Cheney is hated by the Gay Elite. There are discussions about direct efforts to make life uncomfortable for her. Why? Because she dares to be different. She has made the same mistake as I—she refuses to have her sexuality be the singular defining aspect of her identity, and she has had the gall to be her own person and not bow down to the leftist agenda. Yes, she commits the fatal mistake of not conforming to the conformist Gay agenda.


Now consider that supposed political monolith of homosexuals. Kerry says he’s opposed to gay marriage but supports civil unions, a position identical with the president’s. I contend Kerry was in part pandering to the Gay Elite to make up for his position on marriage. The targeting of Mary Cheney by the Gay Elite is a well known effort by liberals, and Kerry’s comment was his way of saying “I’m with you,” by attempting to further their punishment of her on international television.

Of course, pundits have argued that you can’t embarrass an openly gay person by referring to her as, well, gay. While Mary Cheney is out, she has made choices to lead a quiet private life, laden with that pesky dignity thing, and oh yeah, she’s a…a…Republican!! Neither one of those ideas can get out, oh no. The Gay Gestapo looked to Kerry to slap Mary and her family and he did.


Secondly, and perhaps even more revealing of how disconnected the Kerry gang really is, his campaign truly feels that Christians will reject the Bush and Cheney families because of this issue. In the decade-plus of my work as a radio talk show host and writer, I have spoken with thousands of Christians from across this country. What I found from them, coming from the feminist establishment as I do, is that while they hold religious beliefs against homosexuality, they are the most tolerant, understanding, and kind people I have ever met.

Oh sure, there are fringe extremists on the right, just as there are on the left, but the hundreds of Christians and others I heard from by e-mail and on my radio program were insulted, but by Kerry’s presumption that they were as shallow as he.


All of this boils down to something pretty simple--the Bushs and Cheneys have something that the Kerrys and Edwards do not—dignity and class. The contrast between Laura Bush and Teresa Heinz Kerry has truly become the best illustration of those differences. The bottom line is, inheriting all the money in the world (from a wife, a husband or a jury verdict) cannot buy you the dignity and grace inherent in a certain librarian and schoolteacher from Texas and the man she married. Laura Bush has helped her husband become a better man. It seems Teresa and Elizabeth have taken a page from Hillary as they enable the worst in their men.
