Father of the year ... really

Who knew Dick Cheney was so tolerant? If you're coming out to your parents, this is exactly the kind of reaction you pray to hear:

"You’re my daughter, and I love you, and I just want you to be happy."

If only the rest of the administration shared the veep's mindset on this issue.

Vanity Fair editor Todd Purdum reports that Mary Cheney tells her story in a voice very much like her father’s, and that she came out to her parents when she was a junior in high school, on a day when, after breaking up with her first girlfriend, she skipped school, ran a red light, and crashed the family car. Cheney writes that her mother hugged her, but then burst into tears, worried that she would face a life of pain and prejudice.
