Tonight, President and Mrs. Bush will be hosting a very upper crust, ritzy dinner for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
I am not going, but I am impressed that Mary Cheney is taking her partner, Heather Poe, to the dinner. TWN applauds this.
I also think that there is an odd set of cascading ironies that Nancy Reagan is taking Merv Griffin. Let’s just leave it at that — but it’s very cool.
I hope that James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Ralph Reed, Gary Bauer, and some other anti-gay types get a little apoplectic about Laura Bush’s “big tent” tonight.
Anyway, good for Mary.
