His fingers never leave his hands 
Following on rabbit.ears' post, I did a little Googling to see just what else Cheney had to say about same-sex marriages.

He is on record, during the 2000 presidential campaign, as having said "People should be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to enter into. It's really no one else's business, in terms of trying to regulate or prohibit behavior in that regard."

On the other hand, he recently said that he would support Bush's position in promoting the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would enshrine ant-gay discrimination in the US Constitution. He's also recently indicated that
...like Bush, the vice president is concerned that the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act -- which defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman -- is under attack because of actions by officials in certain states.
In other words, gays should forget about it - states rights only extend as far as the religious right will let them, and gay marriage is waaay too far to go.

So don't get fooled ... like charlatans everywhere, the sneaky bits will be going on while you're paying attention to the patter.
