Anyone? Anyone? Dubya? Dubya?

Oh my. I just had to laugh my ass off at this one. Via Queer Day: The White House has chastised John Kerry for "outing" Mary Cheney.
The White House blasted John Kerry Wednesday night for "outing" Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter as a lesbian during the third and final presidential debate. As if it were a secret. Fox debate panelist Mort Kondracke said Kerry's "outing" of Mary Cheney "struck me as a low blow designed to weaken the Bush-Cheney team with right-wingers who might not know that Dick Cheney has a lesbian daughter." Like it's a bad thing.
Uh... Uh... But wait! The hilarity grows. Queer Day's take, again:
Lynne Cheney, Mary's mom, apparently didn't know Mary was a lesbian, either. She's very upset and says Kerry's remark was "tawdry." "The only thing I can conclude is he is not a good man," she told a crowd in Pittsburgh. We remain baffled.
Someone let me know how the hell you "out" an openly gay woman. Please. Especially when -- gasp! -- Dick Cheney himself and John Edwards touched upon Mary's sexuality at the Vice Presidential debate last week. I'm flabbergasted. What rock do you have to be living under to not know Mary Cheney's a lesbian, especially after the whole debacle that ensued following Alan Keyes' rather stupid remarks (and the discovery that _his_ daughter, too, is a lesbian)?
