Man most responsible for NOM's crushing losses spins said losses

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage's political director and mastermind responds to the serving of arse that greeted his breakfast platter:

It was a very difficult and grueling battle, but we have remained faithful and worked hard. I am, of course, very disappointed with the very narrow defeat it appears we’ve suffered in each of these four states. It appears that we have lost by a point or two in each state. It’s important to consider that these battles occurred in a very difficult political landscape. We were contesting in four deep blue states and were outspent very badly in all of them – at least four-to-one, and greater in some states. I have to accept that losing in this very difficult political environment was always a real possibility. I firmly reject the spin surely to come that this result signals a fundamental shift in American opinion in support of gay marriage. It means that we very narrowly lost four difficult contests in four very deep blue states after being badly outspent. Despite the outcome, I am extremely grateful to all the donors, volunteers, staff, vendors and committee members who were part of our team. I am honored to have played a role in these campaigns to preserve marriage in America. It is an institution worth defending, and I look forward to continuing to play a role in this historic debate

Actually, Frank, it's your lesbian sister and her family who should be looking forward from last night's developments.
