No on 8 all like, 'Stop the lie parade, lying liars!'

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 14-57Earlier today we told you about the No on Prop 8 crew's latest ad, which points out all the fibbery that the "yes on 8" (little "y" intentional) side has been passing off as truth. Well now the side of reason has gotten even more bulldog-y, firing off strongly worded letters to stations currently airing the duplicitous (and cruel) spots:

No on Prop 8 lawyers target Protectmarriage's 'false' ads [Justin McLachlan]
No on Prop 8 Campaign Takes Off the Gloves: "They're Using Lies to Persuade You" [CA Majority Report]

It remains to be seen if the anti-gay side will fess up, admit they are being less than factual, and throw in the towel of their nasty, unscrupulous, discriminatory, anti-intelectual, thoroughly un-American endeavor. But if they are to send an apology, it will of course come tacked to a flying pig sometime around the twelfth of Never, the day when Hell freezes over. So be sure to keep an eye out for that!!

Your thoughts

Hey I just noticed some yes on prop 8 ad on your site? Whats that all about?

Jeff: It's a geo-targeted ad that's hitting some people. I'm trying my best to have it removed.

But on one hand, I kind of like it. After all, every time someone clicks, our opposition has to pay me.

Jeremy, I have started clicking on them every time I see them now.

Yeah those ads should be totally removed. It sucks when ads are out of context with the content!

Your country is 10 trillion dollars in debt, and all these sad liitle people have to complain about is this.

Sadly the UK is being over run by these religious types.

I fully respect their right to their faith in whichever belief they have.

The line must be drawn when they inflict that belief system against my right to existence.

Hi Good as You-sters,

Just wanted to give you a heads up on "Save the Institution!" a truly hilarious -- and dead on -- skewering of the "Really, we're not homophobic, we're just trying to save the institution of marriage" crowd. There is also a special "No on Prop 8" version of the song. Funny and well produced, unusual for political music.

Anyhow, give it a listen at http://www.myspace.com/rbuch
Don't let "MySpace" scare you, it really is damned funny.
