Kerry's reference to Cheney's daughter

There's a lot of brouhaha over Kerry's words about Cheney's daughter at the last debate.

SCHIEFFER: Do you believe homosexuality is a choice?
KERRY: 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.

Is any family-member comment out-of-bounds? Perhaps. In its context, it was in pretty poor taste to bring it up.

But it's the underlying message that repulses me: I know Cheney's daughter better than her dad does.

That's the real cheap-shot. The Cheneys have a right to be upset.
