A 'Tombstone' award? Seriously, NOM?!

by Jeremy Hooper

If I was concerned about the sensitivities of a political debate which we know comes will all kinds of personal fallout, I probably wouldn't be giving awards which imply death to folks who simply voted in a way that went against my wishes:

*AUDIO SOURCE: "The TOMBSTONE of the week award goes to four New York Republicans for their votes that betrayed how they campaigned to their constituents." [Doc Holliday's Tea Party]

But then again, I'm not the National Organization For Marriage, a "values" group that is currently pushing the above-played "Tombstone award" as part of its NY protesting efforts:

Note that in the copy on the NOM blog (via Tea Party Review Magazine) they say that the award goes to the actions. But go back and listen to the audio. Read the text copy that accompanies the link. THis "Doc Holliday" didn't say it was for "the actions": He said the cemetery-invoking award goes to the Senators. The people. The mortal humans.

Then again, I guess they could mean Tombstone pizza. Maybe? Possibly? Pepperoni?
