This may be the only thing VP Haliburton's ever done that I actually respect.
This official photograph in which the Cheneys showed off their new grandson was posted on the whitehouse.gov website earlier this week.
Initially, I was shocked that the photo appeared at all given the Bush II Administration's official position on gay and lesbian familes (there aren't any).
And then I spent a few days kind of honked off that I couldn't find any pictures of the baby and his parents, Mary Cheney and Heather Poe.
Now I've settled into sharing Robert Scheer's view that this photograph on the official White House website with a caption naming both Mary and her longterm partner as the boy's parents, is "a milestone in the nation's struggle for human rights for all." And I join him in calling for Dick and Lynne Cheney to join PFLAG.
