From Maureen Dowd's column in the New York Times today:

In a democracy, when you run a campaign that panders to homophobia by attacking gay marriage and then your lesbian daughter writes a book about politics and decides to have a baby with her partner, you cannot tell Wolf Blitzer he's "out of line" when he gingerly raises the hypocrisy of your position.

What a great quote, Ellen! I'm really glad that you found that for today!

It is absolutely hypocritical for Cheney to tell Blitzer that he's "out of line" for asking a question. Mary Cheney ran his campaign and announced to the public that she was having a baby. She's obviously been in the public eye, so the question was NOT "out of line." Would it have been a taboo topic to talk about his straight daughter's pregnancy (if she were pregnant)?
