NOM's been chopping at CPAC tree; Maggie will still eat its fruits

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage may be on the official boycott list, prominently signing on to the coalition letter (assembled by NOM co-founder Robert George) that kicked off the boycott. But that minor point isn't stopping Maggie Gallagher from crossing the CPAC picket line:

"I will be at the Conservative Action Political Conference this week as an opinion journalist, covering the speeches of major potential presidential candidates with an eye toward answering this question: What do they think of life and marriage? And how do they explain, in a principled way, why these are core conservative issues?" [Maggie's syndicated column]

Isn't that just a tad hypocritical? I mean, Maggie's not only NOM's chairperson, but also its most prominent face (and other co-founder, along with George). People don't really even separate the two these days -- Maggie essentially is NOM. So since NOM has been front and center in announcing "withdrawal from participation," isn't a bit bullcrappy for Maggie to reap benefits from CPAC's offerings? We're going with yes.
