Wait, NOM doesn't know that they're the team wrecking GOP's future? Weird. Everyone else does.

by Jeremy Hooper

On "Top Chef," the contestants are always talking about being thrown under the bus (i.e. being sold out by one of their fellow contestants). Well today, it's Chef NOM who's serving up a heaping slice of nonsense over a bed of victimization, coated in a warm B.S. drizzle, and it's those cooks in the GOP kitchen who prefer a more moderate temperature who are supposedly spoiling the feast:

Prediction: after Mehlman announced he's gay, you will see an increasingly coordinated campaign by certain GOP establishment elites to jettison the marriage issue, an issue about which the majority of Americans--and 80 percent of Republicans--agree.

GOP Elites Try to Throw Marriage Under the Bus [National Organization For Marriage]

Only thing here? It's Maggie Gallagher and NOM who have been throwing marriage -- and, by extension, the GOP's identity -- under the bus for the past decade or so! Forget circus peanuts: It's gay people's marriage licenses that Maggie and crew have been using to tease the elephant, getting the party off course of so many actual societal discussion, and trampling so much good will under the pachyderm's considerable feet. And increasingly, we're seeing how the gumbo makes Dumbo feel all of his first four letters.

If there ever was a bipartisan bus in this country that might've been headed towards a shared sense of progress, then "the fight to save marriageā„¢" will surely go Images-1down in history as one of the most ignoble, wantonly divisive, cruelly obnoxious reasons for that bus' derailing. Those Republicans who are making some sort of good faith attempt at unifying or at least getting us past the contentious conversation that surrounds this issue are the ones who are trying, to varying degrees, to wipe the "marriage wars" stench from society's taint. They are not the ones leaving skid marks on marriage, history, and the Republican party!
