Concerned Women share good natured laugh about ill-natured measure

by Jeremy Hooper

Of a recently passed amendment that prevented an earmarked $300,000 in the Transportation, Treasury, and Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill from being given to the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center, the Concerned Women for America's Martha Kleder and Ashley Horne today share this lil' exchange about the "pro-family victory":

KLEDER: Now this is called the THUD bill..HAHAHAHA...because it's the Transportation, Treasury, and Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill.
HORNE: Yes, long name.
KLEDER: Yea, that's why it's called THUD. And, um, a really key provision in the THUD bill went THUD thanks to some grassroots action.
HORNE: Yes, grrrreat way to put it!

HaHa..isn't that hysterical? Because, ya see, the funds went bye bye, so it's like they went THUD. God, that's clever. If only the measure had been called the Wheels, Environment, Wastelands, Andirondacks, Northern Trail Erosion, Deer, Iowa, Tarantulas, Karma, Illinois, Landfills, Lakes, Eyebrows, Dill, Bears, Everything, Cars, Altoids, Underwear, Steve, Emu, Wine, Elephants, Donuts, Oregon, Nuns, Trains, Crisco, Apricots, Recycled Edibles, Fondue, Oars, Rice, Greenery, And Yarn Statute, they could've shared a nice laugh about the bill's even more apt-for-their-purposes acronym, WE WANTED IT KILLED BECAUSE WE DONT CARE FOR GAYS.
