Dick Cheney, That Right Wing Bastard!

I’m going to guess Dick Cheney is done with politics, since coming out in favor of gay marriage isn’t exactly popular even in leftist strongholds like California.  I agree with Cheney on this, and think it’s a good discussion to be having within the conservative movement.  I’m glad he talked about it in public.  While I don’t support judicially imposed gay marriage, I join with Cheney in thinking it would be fine to have some form of union recognized by the government.

But here’s a question I have for gays who supported Obama.   Why?  Having some form of civil marriage is really the only obstacle these days to gay equality, at least in terms of government, and both Obama and his Vice President are against the idea.  What has Obama done for the gay community?   Other than turn out a lot of people who voted in favor of Prop 8 in California.

    Cheney didn’t really come out in favor of gay marriage – he came out in favor of Federalism which I strongly agree with.

    I wish more politicans would read the 10th Amendment and let the states decide marriage, abortion, health care, etc…

    Well, Obama, being a Muslim, would be inherently opposed to gay anything.

    I don’t think you can be both a muslim and a member of Jeremiah Wright’s church… Let’s nail him for the things he actually is, eh?

    (As long as 2 sterile atheist divorcees can marry, who gives a damn about the gays)
