Kerry is loosing ground in the polls and is trailing bush 48-46 and experts say it is due to his comments on Mary Cheney being a lesbian. The reference to Mary actually weakens Bush's stance on being anti-gay and for Kerry to use this reference in the debate, people say was an underhanded punch.
My opinion is who the hell cares - Cheney in the past has referred publicly accepting that Mary (his daughter) is unique and even when John Edwards had mentioned Mary in the much nastier vice presidential debate, Cheney had thanked him "for the kind words he said about my family and our daughter."
For us Pakistanis - we wonder what's the issue? Gay or Lesbian - please talk about something worthwhile
