Love, etc.: New baby for Mary Cheney, Heather Poe


Cheney and Poe at the 2004 Republican convention. (Charlie Neibergall/AP)

Born: A daughter, Sarah Lynne Cheney, to Mary Cheney, 40, and her longtime partner Heather Poe, 48, at Sibley Hospital in D.C. Wednesday morning. Six pounds 14 ounces, the family announced.

She's the seventh grandchild for former VP Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne -- and second child for the Northern Virginia couple. The birth of their son Samuel David Cheney in 2007 reignited the debate over gay marriage in the GOP (in both cases, Mary Cheney was the birth mom; they've never disclosed the sperm donor) -- but second kids never get as much attention, do they?

Congrats. Given that the couple has two kids, they ought to be "able" to get married. Ooops, never mind, if they did it lead to the fall of western civilization.

And besides it has only ever been between one man and one woman for thousands of years, it says so in the bible; Ooops, except when the bible mentions multiple wives of Abraham, Jacob, David & Solomon.

Well maybe them getting married would give children, such as their two the "wrong" idea about homosexuality.

When will people wake up and realize that society is not harmed by a gay or lesbian couple getting married? The sky won't fall.

As for various referendum around the country; How many referendum would have overturned the civil rights granted to racial and religious minorities in the 60s? What does that say about the legitimacy of referendum that takes rights away from some people? Where would we be if 51% could take away any rights from any minority by getting a referendum on the ballot?

Hope the child and mother are both healthy, of course. But I can't help to consider that this is a famous daughter of an infamous father who is a member of a obnoxious political Party that has spent years demonizing same-sex coupling and parenting. Why should this be any different? It's kind of like when Bristol was discovered to be pregnant. It was OK because she's Sarah Palin's daughter and all of a sudden Republican Christians are thrilled that Bristol had pre-marital sex.

Ah, Republicans, the irony is killing me!

Hope the kid does not turn out to be a indoctrinated control freak like all the rest of these conservative republican menace, their perversity of inequality, malignant narcissism and rights only of their kind.

CONGRATS, MARY... ASK GRANDPA IF HE'S PROUD OF THIS, TOO:

**

URGENT TO: SEC. CLINTON, SEN. JOE LIEBERMAN, SEN. HOMELAND SECURITY COMM. MEMBERS
RE: FORT HOOD MASSACRE HEARING (staff, pls. fwd. ASAP)
cc: TEAM OBAMA
FROM: JOURNALIST VICTOR LIVINGSTON =========================

We know the Fort Hood shooter was harassed, and perhaps was a victim of government-enabled vigilante "community stalking." Was he also a target of this covert federal program of electromagnetic torture and impairment -- and PERVASIVE 24/7 SURVEILLANCE?

***

SECRET MULTI-AGENCY FED PROGRAM SILENTLY TORTURES, IMPAIRS, PERSECUTES U.S. CITIZENS WITH MICROWAVE/LASER RADIATION WEAPONS AND LOCAL VIGILANTISM, SAYS MAINSTREAM JOURNALIST

* Thousands of Americans, deemed to be "dissidents" or undesirables, targeted by Bush legacy program for debilitating microwave/laser assault, held hostage in their own homes to fed-supported vigilante "community policing" stalking units, equipped with warrantless GPS devices, who vandalize and terrorize as local police look the other way.

* "Directed energy weapons," portable units and a nationwide installation employing cell towers and satellites, induce weakness, exhaustion, head and body aches, physical and neurological impairment, strokes, aneurysms, cancer -- and many victims do not realize what is making them sick.

* Regional Homeland Security- administered "fusion centers" reportedly serve as command centers for covert electromagnetic radiation attacks, pervasive surveillance, financial sabotage of those identified as "dissidents," "trouble-makers" or slandered as threats to society.

* Use of microwave weaponry to torture and impair political opponents recently confirmed by deposed Honduras President Manuel Zelaya.

* Pleas for justice, to local police and FBI, go unanswered -- as do demands for a Department of Justice Civil Rights Division investigation and congressional hearings.

"These are crimes against humanity and the Constitution, being perpetrated under the cover of national security and 'safe streets' by multiple federal and local agencies and commands -- an American genocide hiding in plain sight, enabled by the naivete of those who think 'it can't happen here.'" -- Victor Livingston, former reporter for WTXF-TV Philadelphia, Phila. Bulletin, N.Y. Daily News, St. Petersburg Times; producer/host, MSG Network Sports Business Report; columnist, NowPublic.com/scrivener.

I really feel sorry for these two children. Not because they live in a house with two lesbian women, but because they are related to Dick Cheney. If Dick was my grandfather I think I would just shoot myself before he had the chance to discharge a shotgun in my direction.

Who knows? Maybe these two children will be raving liberal Democrats when they grow up. Wouldn't that be ironic?

On a serious note -- congatulations to the family....and Mom for delivering a healthy, big baby at 40!

On a sarcastic note -- has anybody gotten the word on how Sarah Palin feels about the whole thing? Any comment? And interpretation of God's will?

Ah....tfburke19, you have been studying Saul Alinsky quite well and you practice his message of hate quite well indeed. Shame on you, may all your hate be returned to you in triplicate. In fact both Cheney and Sarah Palin had NOTHING to do with Mary Cheney's lifestyle or her offspring. Such hate, spewed in a fine liberal paper like the Washington Post.
If only we could forget the tfburke19's of the world and their constant message of hate and focus on the horrible attack on American and all American's freedom at the hands of Pelosi, Reid, Obama and "SENATOR NELSON" of Nebraska who betrayed ALL Nebraska Citizens last weekend.

It is sad of course about all the hate from the left. All wrong of course.
It is the democrats who want to install a Marxist government controlling everything.
For example. The democrats have attacked Republicans for decades at every election about Republicans destroying Social Security and Medicare.

Horrible lies, all. After all it was CLINTON who first placed a tax on Social security income by taxing 85 percent of the payment. Now obama compounds the crime by bragging how he will remove 500 million out of Medicare in a time of inflation. Doubling the criminal act. Pelosi wants to put a winfall tax on retirement income from savings, CD's, Stocks and Bonds.

And we have winemaster2 attacking conservatives again without any reasonable basis.

No dear agrossman1, not ironic, it is likely. Only liberals would enjoy such hate as you do now.
Do you sleep at night or do you worry that one of obama's death panels may visit and decide you are not worth having around. YOU SHOULD OF COURSE.

Only the elections of 2010 can stop you facing such a panel......eventually!
