Saving the Jewish people vs. Answering a question while wearing a sash and high heels
This delightfully deluded clip comes from the satirical HBO movie Recount:
Our primary response: When did Christian social conservatives become so fond of women strutting around a Vegas stage in swim suits for the sake of fame and money?!
Again folks, this pageant contestant gave a sucky, convoluted answer to the question posed. They're all making it sound as if she gave a Mensa-worthy answer and is now being punished simply because that answer contained an opinion which was not "PC". If she had given a similarly convoluted answer in support of same-sex marriage she still should have lost. She did not demonstrate the ability to answer intelligently or succinctly. Please make her go away.

"between the truth and the tiara, between her convictions and the crown, between courage and capitulation"
They make it sound like she took some great moral stance and turned down an offer, at gun point, to become the Queen of England.
They also ask if it's so hard to imagine another 5 or 10% of young people being convinced that one-man-one-woman marriage is the way to go... I'm going to go with a "yes, it is very hard to imagine." With every year of new 18-year-old voters, NOM loses.

She touted the "gays don't deserve marriage equality" line, which is all that matters to them. They'll embrace anybody who spews anti-gay bigotry including ex-felons, thrice-divorced adulterers, blatant liars, thieves and pretty much anybody else. But gay people who are content with who we are and refuse to accept second-class status? We're satan's spawn and must be fought at every turn.

Jeb Bradley got his ass handed to him at least twice when he was booted out of the US Senate and then again when he tried to retake his Senate seat in 2008 (I believe it was the senate). And in this special election he ran for State Senate against Judge Martin who had never held any position in the state legislature before.
It would be like Dubya running for dog-catcher against Joe the Plumber. If he hadn't won, then his political career.. well.. I guess his political career is pretty much a joke ever though he did win. ;)

Huh, NOM must have taken me off their mailing list because I didn't get this one.
So NOM is looking for 20 people to kick in a total of $600 a month, $7,200 a year.
I guess they're hitting the skids.
