Safire gets tough: He chastises Kerry-Edwards for their comments on Mary Cheney.

To tell the truth, I wasn't that worked up about the whole thing. It seemed to me at the time that Kerry was making a positive statement about the VP's daughter.

Then I talked to my buddy Glenn about the situation and he pointed out this: Why did Kerry bring up someone who wasn't in the room, whose relatives weren't in the room, someone with no direct relevance to the debate? We felt like it was fair for Edwards to address the issue, since he was speaking directly to Mary Cheney's father. But, Glenn and I decided (in our infinite wisdom), it wasn't proper for Kerry to speak about the Cheneys' daughter without addressing them face-to-face.
