    The remark about Mary Cheney has James Carville's and Paul Begala's name all over it. Deliberate attempt to embarass Dick and Lynne Cheney; note the quick response to the criticism by Elizabeth Edwards afterwards.

    It wasn't particularly taken aback by Sen. Kerry's comments concerning V.P. Cheney's daughter. I find just about everything the Senator says distasteful and this wasn't appreciable worse. But then there was this:

    to which Mrs. Edwards rejoined from left field:

    Shame?

    Imagine if the political parties of those involved were reversed. Front page news from now until Election Day no doubt screaming that only a conservative (said derisively) would claim a mother could be ashamed of her daughter for being gay. But because a liberal said it the spin is accepted.

    News Media: "Yes the outrage from the right concerning Sen. Kerry's benign remarks is just because they are ashamed, those awful homophobic bigots. It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with privacy, propriety, or common courtesy. "

    "She's fair game," says Kerry Campaign Manager Mary Beth Cahill.

    Maybe she is fair game, but then so should all of Edwards' family be fair game. Anyone got any dirt on Edwards' grandmother?
