God help me, I actually feel sorry for Dick Cheney.
No, not because of that whole selling-his-soul-to-Satan business. Lots of people in this town do that. And, for the most part, it seems to be working out pretty well for the former VP. (As has been noted, the man looks damn good for someone of his age and cardiac history.)
But my heart does go out to Dick over the escalating gay-marriage spat between his daughters, Liz and Mary.
For those not keeping track: This year, in hot pursuit of a Wyoming Senate seat, Liz has repeatedly felt compelled to state her disapproval of gay marriage. This, as you might imagine, has not gone over well with her sister, who last year married long-time partner Heather Poe.
