For those of you out there saying that it was 'no big deal' that Kerry told the world that Mary Cheney was a lesbian because 'everyone already knew that'....picture this...
Let's say it went down THIS way on a question about health care to president Bush:
"Well Bob, health care prices are a serious issue and a problem. The problem is that if we went to a government run program, such as Senator Kerry is suggesting, medicine and care would be rationed. This may be a problem for things that are important to individuals, but not deemed as an 'imminent threat' by the health care community. I am sure if you talk to John Edwards' wife, Elizabeth Edwards...who is, uh, overweight...she would tell you that this is important to her to be able to get care for her eating problem and since she was born that way shouldn't be judged for it....or denied her rights for care because of it..."
This is THE SAME THING that happened on Wednesday night. Bush wouldn't be telling the public 'something they didn't already know'. Mary Cheney has to TELL people she's gay...but we can LOOK at Elizabeth Edwards and know that she's overweight...would that make it OK for Bush to say that in a PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE on NATIONAL TELEVISION?!! NO!!!
The media would be roaring -it would be front page (above the fold) on EVERY paper -it would be the leading story on every network...
Please, stop being hypocrites and admit this was really terrible and a gross misuse/abuse of power (not to mention political ambition)!
