Note for Mr. Safire

If you conservatives are so incredibly offended that John Kerry would mention the mere fact that Mary Cheney is a lesbian — and let’s remember that this is hardly a state secret, given that Mary Cheney has been out of the closet for years and was in fact once employed as the lesbian and gay community liasion for Coors Brewing — but if that’s such an outrage, I’m assuming that you guys must be really really offended by what another politician recently said about Mary:

After saying homosexuality is “selfish hedonism,” (Alan) Keyes was asked if that makes Mary Cheney “a selfish hedonist.” “Of course she is,” Keyes told Signorile. “That goes by definition.”

I eagerly await your principled denunciation of Mr. Keyes.
