And the Cheney clan grows

Dick and Lynne Cheney are going to be grandparents again for the 6th time. Wow, you say, that will make 6 children for their older daughter Elizabeth and her husband. But wait, you’d be wrong if you say that. It’s NOT Elizabeth who is pregnant! It’s Mary and her partner, Heather, who are the proud parents-to-be:

Mary Cheney, the vice president's openly gay daughter, is pregnant. She and her partner of 15 years, Heather Poe, are "ecstatic" about the baby, due in late spring, said a source close to the couple.

It's a baby boom for grandparents Dick and Lynne Cheney: Their older daughter, Elizabeth, went on leave as deputy assistant secretary of state before having her fifth child in July. "The vice president and Mrs. Cheney are looking forward with eager anticipation to the arrival of their sixth grandchild," spokesman Lea Anne McBride said last night.

Well I’m very happy for the couple, but something tells me I will be in the minority. Any guesses on how long it will take before the Whacko Dobson Crowd weighs in on this news? It should be fun watching them go apocalyptic.

Hat tip to Pam who also has the expected Freeperland meltdown and as usual they do not disappoint. Check it out.
