Edwardses Shamelessness Week

In today’s The Note, Elizabeth Edwards’s response to Lynne Cheney’s natural reponse to Kerry using the Cheneys daughter last night: (Mrs. Cheney: “The only thing I could conclude is that this is not a good man. This is not a good man. And, of course, I’m speaking as a mom. And a pretty indignant one. This is not a good man. What a cheap and tawdry political trick.”):

Elizabeth Edwards, during an interview with ABC News Radio this morning had the following response:

“It makes me really sad that that’s Lynne’s response. I think that it indicates a certain degree of shame with respect to her daughter’s sexual preferences that I’m certain makes her daughter uncomfortable. That makes me very sad on a personal level.”

She called Kerry’s response “very thoughtful” and “extremely sensitive.” She also said Lynne Cheney has been a “wonderful advocate for her daughter,” but feels “she has over-reacted to this” and “that’s a very sad state of affairs.”

And, on Fox, Kerry spokesperson Debra DeShong had the nerve to say, “If Lynne Cheney has a problem, it’s something that she needs to work with her family.”
