D.C.-based NOM continues to impart out-of-state hubris on NY politics

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage today endorsed Wendy Long, a Republican challenging incumbent U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY):

"Kirsten Gillibrand has abandoned families on important issues like the definition of marriage," Brown said. "She has come to symbolize everything that's wrong with Washington—cultural arrogance and recklessly spending money we don't have, saddling families with a mountain of debt. In Wendy Long, we have a candidate who will fight hard for families in Washington." [NOM]

The highly respected Senator Gillibrand represents everything that's wrong with Washington? HA! This coming from a divisively partisan, church/state-muddying, professionally discriminatory, single issue special interest group that thinks our world of problems are best solved by telling loving gay couples they cannot enter into a legal union.

NOM of course supports Wendy Long because she has essentially agreed to do the organization's bidding on DOMA and related marriage matters (Long has said she wouldn't attend a gay wedding). Unlike Senator Gillibrand, who of course prefers the lighting on history's right side.
