Hypocrite parents

by Yule Heibel on October 15, 2004

It’s clearly of a piece that Dick Cheney and his wife would be indignant over Kerry mentioning their daughter’s homosexuality on the one hand, and that George Bush and his wife on the other are dead-set against stem-cell research. That piece is called double standard. I wish that more members of “first families” in the US would speak out publicly against the hypocrisy their families and their class typically support. Patti Davis did, in this commentary on Christopher Reeve’s death. Mary Cheney, what do you think? Do you think it’s ok that your parents are “indignant” and “angry” because someone pointed out that you’re a lesbian? Who’s being “political” and “tawdry” here?
