The Cheney Spat

by Maggie Gallagher

As Katrina notes below, Dick and Lynne Cheney issued a joint statement on their daughters’ very public and highly publicized Facebook spat over gay marriage. Because when you as a family have been dealing with a personal issue over many years and are “pained” to see it become public, the one thing you really want to make clear is: Liz doesn’t support gay marriage.

This is an issue we have dealt with privately for many years, and we are pained to see it become public,” wrote the Cheneys.

“Since it has, one thing should be clear. Liz has always believed in the traditional definition of marriage,” the couple added.
