Vice President Dick Cheney is an angry dad. And he is blaming Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry for dragging his lesbian daughter into the campaign.
Kerry referred to her during a debate with President Bush on Wednesday. Kerry responded to a question about whether homosexuality is a choice by mentioning Cheney's daughter, Mary, who has publicly acknowledged being a lesbian.
Cheney was in Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers yesterday. He made only a passing reference to the remark during a rally with 2,500 Republicans.
In his words: "You saw a man who will do and say anything to get elected and I am not just speaking as a father here, although I am a pretty angry father."
