IAN BARNES, Macon, GA writes: It is amazing that Republicans want to have their cake and eat it too. It seems that they are offended that John Kerry mentioned Mary Cheney in the debate Wednesday night.
Maybe they need to be reminded why we are discussing gay marriages - Republicans want an amendment banning it.
This has created a major dilemma in many Republican families. They must decide whether to be gung-ho behind their fearless leader (Dub-ya) which may alienate a gay member of their family, or do as Dick Cheney has done, and agree with John Kerry's position on this issue.
The GOP needs to be careful when they drive a wedge issue down the throats of Americans. They should realize that most of us "regular folks" have at least one gay uncle, mother, child, close friend, etc.
I agree and I wonder what was so different about Kerry's remarks from those of John Edwards during the v.p. debate -- which the vice president thanked him for.
