It's starting

Remember how I said yesterday how the right is going to have a fit over Mary Chaney's pregnancy? Here are a few quotes so far (courtesy of americablog)

Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America described the pregnancy as "unconscionable."

"It's very disappointing that a celebrity couple like this would deliberately bring into the world a child that will never have a father," said Crouse, a senior fellow at the group's think tank. "They are encouraging people who don't have the advantages they have."

Crouse said there was no doubt that the news would, in conservatives' eyes, be damaging to the Bush administration, which already has been chided by some leaders on the right for what they felt was halfhearted commitment to anti-abortion and anti-gay-rights causes in this year's general election.

Carrie Gordon Earll, a policy analyst for the conservative Christian ministry Focus on the Family, expressed empathy for the Cheney family but depicted the newly announced pregnancy as unwise.

"Just because you can conceive a child outside a one-woman, one-man marriage doesn't mean it's a good idea," said. "Love can't replace a mother and a father."

Right-Wingers are nice aren't they?

Just an update real quick these are the same people who bashed John Kerry who made comments about Mary Chaney in 2004. Hypocrites as usual.

It was Edwards that made the comment during the VP debates.

Yeah but Kerry got the blame.
