Michael Gerson, 5/27/09:
[Dick Cheney] has always been reticent on controversial social issues — except in his vocal support of gay marriage.
Dick Cheney, 8/24/04:
Most states have addressed this and there is on the books the federal statute, the Defense of Marriage Act, passed in 1996, and to date, it has not been successfully challenged in the courts and may be sufficient to resolve the issue.
Either Dick Cheney is the first person to support DOMA and same-sex marriage, or Michael Gerson is wrong. A editor with more concern for the facts than Fred Hiatt would probably correct this, but I’m not holding my breath.
