It is praiseworthy that, in a spirit of Christian forgiveness, hopeless radical Natalie Davis at her blog All Facts and Opinions showed the thoughtfulness yesterday to wish her own Happy Birthday to Vice President Dick Cheney, and even to help him with his own family problems, by posting a link to the auction site where he is trying to sell one of his children (though there seems to be a typo -- I thought it was "ebay", but this sales item page says she's for sale on "egay", where he has a picture of "My Lesbian Daughter, Mary Cheney").

Now some good conservatives will no doubt accuse the Veep of hypocrisy because he is a Republican, and Lincoln's party's great claim to "human rights" credentials (though why anyone would want those I can't imagine) was ending chattel slavery. Nonsense. This is evidence that those White House Bible study groups the liberals love to mock have borne fruit. Cheney is reinstituting the earliest form of Free Enterprise, the sale of people. I'm sure he is doing so in accord with the holy words of Exodus 21:7, which says "And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do." Having spent so much to raise this offspring, should he not derive some return on his investment?
