National Review Online's editor, Kathryn Jean Lopez explains why the Cheneys are in a snit over John Kerry's reference to their daughter Mary, in the third presidential debate, but not concerned about Alan Keyes' statement that she is a "selfish hedonist" in a radio interview: "Are you serious? The Illinois Senate race is official GOP AWOL territory.
"Why would they give Keyes more publicity by responding? And even if everyone weren't just ignoring that race, you don't need a chart to explain the huge difference between a Senate candidate who has not chance of winning and the Democratic candidate for the presidency of the United States, currently in a tie-like race."
In other words, the Cheney's primary concern is for the Republican party. Hey, it wasn't me who said it.
