"FREEDOM MEANS FREEDOM FOR EVERYONE": When Dick Cheney's right, he's right. Gay Americans are not second-class citizens. On the other hand, I'd appreciate it if more Republicans who didn't have gay children came out against the No Gay Marriage Amendment.

But that's politics for you. Senators and Congressmen are always crossing party lines to support proposals that benefit their families personally.

Conventional wisdom says that if you have an obscure disease, the best thing that can happen to you is a major celebrity getting the same disease. Well let me tell you, the next best think is if a Senator's kid gets it and his father or mother decides that an extra $10 million in targeted research funding isn't such a bad idea.

UPDATE: Michelle Cottle agrees. Dick Cheney is selfish, not compassionate.
