VT: Pointless group enters pointless fight

by Jeremy Hooper

Vt-2Apparently fans of fighting battles they will inevitably lose, it is being reported that Vermont's opponents of marriage equality are ramping up their equality-stifling efforts by forming something called the Vermont Marriage Advisory Council:

New Vermont group to oppose gay marriage [Times Argus]

The new group is ostensibly planning to "hold hearings on the benefits of traditional marriage," as they work to keep the state from bumping up their currently legal civil unions system to full nuptial parity. Though if they get bored with that fruitless waste of time, we hear they might move on to yelling at brick walls, pissing in the wind, trying to make water run up hill, determining the definitive meaning of life, convincing folks that grass is really orange, or finding out how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop. Though they will obviously not hold any "Reading the writing that's so clearly on the wall" competitions, as their inability to see the way this marriage fight is progressing has already disqualified them from that event.

But hey -- best of luck in all of your eventual losses, VT Marriage Advisory Council!! We'll let you know if the last laugh is really as satisfying as we think it will be.
