Revolution: When you talk about destruction, Maggie, don't you know that you can count me out?

by Jeremy Hooper

Maggie's latest column reads somewhat like a call to arms:

"American politics are in a quasi-revolutionary phase.


The people, symbolized first in the eruptions of Tea Parties, are rebelling against elites who believe they can ignore our voices and our values.
"
...

"We are entering into a new phase in the battle not only for marriage, but for self-government, for the legitimacy of the views and values of the American people.


This is a fight we cannot dodge, and must and will win.

Buckle down, it's going to be a ride!
"

-Maggie Gallagher, from her latest syndicated column

Right. Because the long-shunned, fairness-craving LGBT people really are the "elites" here. Not the well-funded, Yale-educated, Catholic church-connected, media-accessing, conservative shoulder-rubbing Maggie Gallagher/NOM. Mmm Hmm. Right.

And what happens when Maggie and her "must/will win" crew, who have been so riled up and who have been tapped for so much money, ultimately don't/won't win? Well, we just hope a buckle will be enough to protect us on that ride!
