    To be fair on Cheney, he's never made anti-gay comments like a lot of his colleagues. Congratulations to the parents.

    I'm too entrenched in the dignity of human life to belittle the event in and of itself. I wish them well. I wish Dick a speedy retirement. I wish troops were home to reproduce as they would like.

    Lots of gay families have children, and some lesbian women do choose to carry their own children. I'm not really seeing anything ironic either.

    The irony is this: This is an administration solidly against gay marriage (even thought Cheney himself is not), but apparently, kids are OK. And what do conservatives love to harp on to their kids? "Don't get knocked up out of wedlock" and "pre-marital sex is wrong".

    don't we have to wait for a reaction from the religious right before citing any irony?

    Ok then, the anticipation of irony. :) Will that satisfy your intellectual requirements? :D

    I think your first three posts explain the irony well, lee. Thanks.

    I couldn't believe it myself when I first saw the headline. For a moment I thought I was reading The Onion. :D
