  •  Ahm but would he be (8+ / 0-)

    if he didn't have a gay daughter?, we'll never know.

    •  no (8+ / 0-)

      conservatives often have zero empathy unless it somehow effects them personally.

      it's almost the defining characteristic of a conservative.

      •  Cheney, however, strikes me as the type of (1+ / 0-)

        sociopath who really believes that if he doesn't have strong feelings about something, that something isn't really important. I really think the main effect of his having a gay child is to move him from indifference to mild support, not from opposition to support.

      •  That's not always true (0+ / 0-)

        Newt Gingrich has a gay sister and he's still an anti-gay, homophobic bigot.

      •  Cheney is the example of why its OK to be pro gay (0+ / 0-)

        and republican and it is exactly because he probably wouldnt be IF he didnt have a lesbian daughter...  Cheney proves that if they look MOST people have someone in their family who is gay and to be against gay rights is to be against your own family member.  

        It's the older closeted gay republicans that I can have no respect for in 2012....  maybe I would understand if this was 1950 but its not... being IN the closet and outwardly anti gay is about as pathetic as it gets... for me and there are to many 'conservatives' who are still willing to help homophobes rather then come out of that closet.
