In which an antigay joke-butt pretends to be in on punch line

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage is once again putting on their brave, big kid panties in order to NOM-parodyconvince America that they are grateful for all the negative attention they've been receiving. This time it's the brilliant "Colbert Show" parody, which thoroughly pwned their "Gathering Storm" ad, that they are pretending to enjoy:

(Princeton, NJ) - “I’ve always thought Stephen Colbert was a double-agent, pretending to pretend to be a conservative, to pull one over Hollywood. Now I’m sure," said Maggie Gallagher, President of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).

“Thank you Stephen for playing our ad in full on national television—for free. HRC eat your heart out. Plus we all had a great chuckle, too!" said Brian Brown, NOM’s Executive Director. "Where can I make a donation to the National Organization for Colbert?"

National Organization for Marriage to Stephen Colbert: “Thank You!”

Uh huh. Right. And Domino's is just so thrilled about the thin crust (of snot) pizza created by a pair of North Carolina employees. After all, apALLing press is good press -- right?

Yea, you keep telling yourselves this, NOM. The rest of us will gladly keep "promoting" your agenda, the same way that Tina Fey promoted Sarah Palin right into the VP's mansion.

*More from NOM's Epic Fail of a month: NOM's embarassing casting tapes. NOM denies comments. NOM supports 2M4M. NOM is despised by YouTube community, receiving parody after parody. NOM is unpopular even on their own Facebook page. NOM forfeits chance to defend their failure of an ad. NOM overextends their copyright. NOM's Brian Brown forfeits chance to defend self. NOM issues a "fact sheet" that only gets the "sheet" part right. NOM's Maggie Gallagher compares self to Vaclav Havel. Despite all this, NOM claims that their ad is a "success."

Your thoughts

It's common practice, and good op-ed journalism, to present the opposing view before mocking and/or destroying it. This may come as a shock to people who watch Fox News.

Maggie, I'm beginning to think YOU'RE a double-agent. You're coming across so batty these days that you're clearly energizing the wrong base.

Do Magda & Bri Bri think it was funny that conservative Steve outed their organization as a Mormon front on national TV? They have a better sense of humor than I thought.

“I’ve always thought Stephen Colbert was a double-agent.."

The only way that what he said could ever possibly make any sense (and be in any way flattering to themselves) is if Colbert were a conservative pretending to be a progressive, who is pretending (comically poorly) to be a conservative. Otherwise those morons are even more clueless than they appear at first blush. But, that would make him more like a triple-agent??

The fact that these bigots find Colbert an ally in this situation has just convinced me that there actually exists a higher level of lunacy than I previously imagined.

"“I’ve always thought Stephen Colbert was a double-agent, pretending to pretend to be a conservative, to pull one over Hollywood. Now I’m sure," said Maggie Gallagher, President of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). "

LOL LOL LOL They thought Colbert was actually a conservative? They didn't realize that his entire routine is a satire of the Bill O'Reilly persona?
