Veep: Freedom Means Freedom

I can sort of respect Cheney's position on gay marriage. It's the federal government's duty to leave the legality of relationships alone; states can do what they want. On the other hand, he is clearly torn between party policy and his daughter. I'm of the mind to favour Glenn Reynolds' platform statement yesterday - there should be happily married gay couples with closets full of assult rifles. ...Edwards just brought Mary Cheney directly into the conversation. That is just wrong; it's a cheap shot using her as a wedge. If there's real sympathy there, I'm not seeing it in Edwards' voice or eyes. He's right that the FMA was unnecessary, but he's spinning furiously to explain why Kerry is so incredibly quantum on being both for and against gay marriage. It's not convincing. Hm. Cheney thanked him for the compliment about Mary, and didn't otherwise respond. Fascinating.
