Stardate 58649.0 - Politics as Usual

From: CBS 2: Top Stories

http://cbsnewyork.com/topstories/topstories_story_238070610.html

"Vice President Dick Cheney, whose daughter Mary is a lesbian, drew criticism from both proponents and foes of gay marriage Tuesday after he distanced himself from President Bush's call for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage."

Am I the only person who thinks this is politically motivated to either a) Paint Cheney as not Satan, or b) Soften up the ticket's (and/or the GOP's) anti-gay tradition? Why wasn't he saying this back when the amendment was being proposed? Or at any time over the past 4 years? Is it not suspicious that he brings this topic up so close to the election?

Why is it liberals answer to everything is either "I did not have sex with that woman!" or alternatively "Its part of a vast right wing conspiracy" ?

For the record, I am a registered independent. It is my wife who is the registered democrat. And I don't think the conspiracy is that vast, just Bush, Karol Rove, and Chaney.
