I was struggling to grasp two developments in Washington last week:
- The gay daughter of the Vice President of an anti-gay administration – along with her lesbian partner – will be a mother soon. Bless her.
- That Vice President hailed Don Rumsfeld as “the finest secretary of defense this nation has ever had.”
But one thing Cheney said about Rumsfeld explained it all:
“I would not be where I am today but for the confidence that Don first placed in me those many years ago.”
So Rumsfeld is to blame for that, too.
