Memo to Lynne Cheney and any other Republican trying to turn this non-issue into a “legitimate” issue: GET OVER YOURSELVES. Instead of trying to make political hay about John Kerry’s using Mary Cheney to illustrate a point, perhaps we’d all benefit if you listened to Kerry’s message.
There was nothing malicious implied or intended in Kerry’s remark, and Republican attempts to paint it otherwise should be recognized by reasonable people as craven political posturing.
Find another issue, y’all. There’s nothing here.
