"I think freedom means freedom for everybody. And you ought to have the right to make whatever choice you want to make with respect to your own personal situation. I certainly don't have a problem with [same-sex marriage]."—Sith Lord and Former Vice President Dick Cheney, discussing same-sex marriage on "The View" yesterday.
Leaving aside that Cheney is a huge anti-choice and pro-war hypocrite who would deny freedom and safety to anyone if it would make Halliburton a buck, it is not insignificant that even Dick Cheney is now to the left of President Barack "Fierce Advocate" Obama on same-sex marriage.
Yes, I realize he is out of office blah blah, but the point is that when Dick Cheney can signal his support for same-sex marriage without controversy, we are officially well beyond the point at which it is acceptable even by garbage Beltway keep-your-job standards to continue using ye olde political expediency chestnut to justify a failure to support marriage equality.
