Gay, Republican columnist Andrew Sullivan has it correct when he states,
The Cheneys didn't respond to Jim DeMint's gay-baiting in South Carolina, or Alan Keyes' direct insult of their own daughter in Illinois.

But they are outraged that Kerry mentioned the simple fact of their daughter's openly gay identity. What complete b.s.
