Republication of Lynne Cheney’s lesbian novel cancelled

Lynne Cheney's lesbian-themed novelLast week Newsweek reported the planned reissue of Second Lady Lynne Cheney’s novel, Sisters, which features lesbian characters, but Ms. Cheney’s publisher has since announced that the book will not be republished, and her lawyer insists that demand can be met through used bookstores (not quite). Although her daughter is openly gay, Ms. Cheney has declined to comment publicly on the Bush administration’s support for a Constitutional amendment prohibiting gay marriage and has claimed not to remember the plot of the novel.

Should we have strap-ons shipped to the White House? Too expensive; message unclear. Hold a fanfic contest? Too predictable. Your suggestions are welcome.
