Absolutely disgusting

Via Betsy Newmark, we see reprehensible behavior is running rampant in the Democratic Party. Elizabeth Edwards steps up with a bit of condescenion of Lynne Cheney for defending her daughter after Kerry's rudness in dragging the Cheney's daughter slap-dab in the middle of the debate when Scheiffer asked a question on homosexuality.

Who is she to delve into the heart or conscience and pronounce that shame is a motivation for Lynne's dressing down of Kerry.
And while I am riled, what kind of crap is this? The background intro in the NYT's article has this:
"As both sides claimed victory after the third and final debate between President Bush and Mr. Kerry, in a session that covered a broad range of issues, attention was focused today on a relatively brief back-and-forth between Mr. Bush and Mr. Kerry that ended in an allusion to Mr. Cheney's daughter Mary."
First of all, there was no brief back and forth. Bush answered, then Kerry answered. Neither responded to each others comments. And it didn't end in an allusion to Mr. Cheney's daughter Mary. It was the second sentence of Kerry's 14 sentence answer. Here's his first two sentences:
"We're all God's children, Bob. And I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was, she's being who she was born as."
But David Stout, who is definitely not a reporter, plays games and writes this alternate history of Kerry's response:
"For his part, Mr. Kerry said he too sees marriage as a union between man and woman. But unlike Mr. Bush, Mr. Kerry does not support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

The senator went on to say, "I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was, she's being who she was born as."
Enough for now. (Can you tell I'm annoyed?)
