Cheney, "Freedom means freedom for everyone"

Cheney’s Gay Marriage Comments Draw Fire

In what might go down as the biggest oops of the 2004 election cycle, Vice pResident Dick Cheney broke from the stated position of George Bush and the GOP on the issue of gay marriage today. When asked at a campaign stop about his position on gay marriage the veep said,

“Lynne and I have a gay daughter, so it’s an issue our family is very familiar with,” Cheney told an audience that included his daughter. “With the respect to the question of relationships, my general view is freedom means freedom for everyone … People ought to be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to.

“The question that comes up with the issue of marriage is what kind of official sanction or approval is going to be granted by government? Historically, that’s been a relationship that has been handled by the states. The states have made that fundamental decision of what constitutes a marriage,” he said.

To quote Jon Stewart, “Whhaaaaa?” Did someone forget to give Dick his medicine or does he actually have a real heart under all that defibrillating equipment?
