Come to see the Constitution, stay to see those who work to undermine it

by Jeremy Hooper

Look our District, peeps: Someone from the National Organization For Marriage (presumably Maggie Gallagher) has tweeted the following:

Picture 29-20

Just in time for Independence Day: A group that wants to force gay couples to be nothing but independent in the eyes of the law is descending upon out nation's capital. While you are literally burning up money via bottle rockets and Roman candles, NOM will be prepping plans to figuratively burn up DC supporters' money through in-vain, unreasoned attempts to stop an unstoppable train. While you are literally BBQ-ing and having a beer, NOM will be prepping news and unique ways that they can figuratively cook the queers. And when you key up to sing "This Land is Your Land," NOM will be storming their brains for how they can most effectively add the parenthetical element "(unless you're a 'mo)" to the end of that song.

Red. White. Blew it when they chose discrimination.

Welcome to DC, NOM. Why we won't keep your unrighteous goals in our prayers, we will work diligently to let everyone know that when it comes to American freedom, you all have decidedly made gays your anti-qeuality prey.

Your thoughts

Can't remember where, but I recall reading that Brian Brown was moving his family to DC to man the new NOM office.

I wonder how many people man each "office" of NOM's. Well, I guess they've probably had to close offices in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, & Connecticut anyway.

I find it interesting that when the NOM poll on marriage equality found less than 40% in favor, and showed more than 36% of survey respondents were over 65 years of age I had to check their facts.

Turns out the little demographic blurb, I have a copy of the RI Central Voter Registration database. So I did a query requesting all those 65 or older who are registered to vote in RI. The result, 19% of the voting population is 65 or older.

So NOM is telling a fib. I forwarded it to Gallagher, never got a response.

I was wondering what that smell was.

And before the name "Brian Brown" becomes hopelessly besmirched...
