Maggie calls us gloaters, then pulls post. Which kind of makes us wanna gloat, frankly.

by Jeremy Hooper

For some reason NOM abruptly pulled this post from Maggie Gallagher (which referenced this here website as the "gloaters"):

Interesting that she responds to this one thing we wrote, with a frivolous aside about the supposed typicality of our supposed "gloating," considering we've directly taken on her logic in any number of ways over the past six years. Guess this one matter was easier to spin than the time we caught her calling homosexuality "unfortunate" and said that gays can "always control [their] behavior" (to name but one instance). But I digress.

Since we were able to reclaim this removed post, let's look at Maggie's stated claim. Maggie says that even though her ideas still ended up getting trounced in the Economist debate, she's actually glad because of the change that occurred. This change:

That's what she's so happy about: That through NOM and other group's GOTV actions she was able to grow opposition by 19%, getting it all the way to 37%? Well okay, Maggie, if you want to claim that as progress, then go for it. Though you should know: It is less than the The Cool Moose Party candidate for Rhode Island's Lt. Governor ;-).
