Mary Cheney Gives Birth to a Baby Boy

CheneybabyMary Cheney and her partner Heather Poe gave birth to a baby boy this morning at Sibley Hospital in Washington, D.C. It is the sixth grandchild for Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne.

The baby's name is Samuel David Cheney.

Mary Cheney's partner of 15 years, Heather Poe, will have no legal relationship with the child under Virginia law, according to Jennifer Chisler of Family Pride: "In the state of Virginia, it’s very difficult for lesbian couples to have children together. Heather Poe will have no legal relationship with her child. She can’t adopt as a second parent. She won’t have her name on the birth certificate."

So here's the official photo released by the White House. Somehow I doubt we'll see an official photo of Mary and Heather with the baby.

Family Pride is holding a digital baby shower for the Cheney-Poes.

  1. How long before Dick Cheney eats the baby?

  2. How dare these fuckers pose with that baby when they consider the mothers' sexuality to be a disturbing inconvenience. Dick's expression is a bit more indicative of the underlying truth though. How dare Mary hand the kid over, furthermore? She's an enabler, squandering many opportunities to vehemently oppose the dogma her parents and their friends have been oppressing us with.

  3. Oh come on 000000! I have no love for the Cheney clan at all, but they love their daughter and have the look of proud grand-parents.

  4. Those plastic smiles on the faces of the "proud grandparents" will scar the poor kid for life.

  5. And just days after Jerry Falwell's death. Coincidence or not?

  6. Well... if that didn't stop his heart, nothing will.

  7. I'm very happy for Mary and the baby and that lady who lives with them.

  8. Vlad Dracul and Mrs. Dracul invite you to the christening of their grandson, Damien.

    My invitation to the baby shower must have gotten lost in the mail. Not to worry. I'm gifting him a lifetime membership in PFLAG, SLDN, NOW, and the ACLU.

  9. I thought I felt a chill in the air this morning. Shiver!!!!!

  10. So when are they going to start sodomizing the kid? I hear your supposed to start before you toilette train. After all thats what homo's do to kids right?

    In the words of that dude in New Orleans on CNN a couple years ago:
    "Fuck off Mr. Cheney"

  11. No, James. They love the parts of her that they picked and chose for approval according to their deluded opinion of how love and life should be legislated. You'd probably leave a lover you couldn't respect %100. Why can't she do it with her parents?

  12. The words 'republican' and 'hypocite' are virtually synonymous!

  13. You can almost make out the 666 on junior's forehead...

  14. Okay, you parents out there, here's your opportunity. All you have to do is see that your little Johnny or Jane goes into psychology. They could get VERY rich as this kid's therapist. Lord knows, he's going to need a good one.

  15. Hopefully the child will not get Dads looks and Mary's talent.

    I also hope the child can survive the stares of disapproval from the grand parents. Republicans are all about that stare of disapproval.

  16. the good news here is that at least the couple is suffering the same law, just like EVERY other gay couple.

    i wish the bush twins could go fight their father's war, so they can join other families, and suffer from the situations they support.

  18. maybe in the years to come they'll go a-huntin' and the kid'll blow dick's greedy evil face off.

    The Bush twins are perfectly able and capable (albeit with training) to go to Iraq, but alas we have a volunteer army and apparently the sales at Nordstroms and nights at Cain or Bungalow 8 are too important to give up.

  20. What a bizarre photo! WHERE ARE THE PARENTS? Typically, a mother poses with her child while the partner and assorted grandparents look on.

    Of course, we know why the parents aren't present, but still, isn't this unusual anyway? (I'm British so I'm used to Royals posing in official photos.)

  21. Its a beautiful thing that has this disgusting undercurrent to it.

    Posted by: Toto | May 23, 2007 10:30:17 PM

  22. Please take the picture down. It's just disturbing. Reminds me of "The Hills Have Eyes".

  23. Ha! Oh my poor boyfriend's name...

  24. May the child know more tolerance than his mother and grandparents have promulgated.

  25. I'm very happy for Mary and the baby and that lady who lives with them.

    Posted by: Daniel | May 23, 2007 6:42:41 PM

    LOL. Would that be "Aunt Heather?"
