I’ve been trying to figure out what to say about Mary Cheney’s marriage — John Fugelsang finally crystallized my own take on it:
“While Dick Cheney’s party spent decades calling people like Mary deviant or unnatural, the liberals were fighting for her. When Karl Rove made same-sex marriage a wedge issue to divide Americans in the 2004 election, liberals were writing the checks to defeat that homophobic agenda. And when Fox News spent hundreds of hours lying about people like Mary Cheney and calling them a threat to traditional marriage, the very people Mary’s dad so deeply despises were the ones standing up for her liberty.
So you’re welcome, Cheneys, we were happy to do it.”
