Keyes Attacks Cheney's Daughter

"As the Republican National Convention focused on unity Tuesday," Illinois U.S. Senate candidate Alan Keyes (R) "lashed out at the vice president's gay daughter," the Chicago Sun Times reports.

After Keyes told radio show hosts that homosexuality is "selfish hedonism," he was asked whether Mary Cheney is a "selfish hedonist." Said Keyes: "Of course she is. That goes by definition. Of course she is."

"Thus far, Keyes' week has been defined by friction with his state party chairwoman and the Illinois delegation, who feel they're playing second fiddle to Keyes' media campaign. Some have also expressed concerns about Keyes' beliefs, calling them too far right for Illinois."
