And the award for most delusional year-end video goes to…

by Jeremy Hooper

Starbucks is thriving. Damian Goddard is saying ridiculous stuff on a near-daily basis, and his whole "Marriage ADA" project has fallen on deaf ears. That "most pro-marriage platform" led to a major GOP drubbing at the November polls. NOM merely co-opted the Chick-fil-A thing, and there are some signs that the company is now backing away from the anti-equality movement and the horrible press it brought. All of the GOP primary candidates were highly unelectable without a snowball's chance of beating our proudly pro-equality President, and their choice to sign the NOM pledge was but one demonstration of that. NOM's efforts in NY helped turn control of the state Senate over to pro-equality Democrats, and even their one key GOP "victor," Kathy Marchione, has said she won't touch marriage rights. North Carolina was followed up by four crucial state wins, three of which gave marriage rights the go ahead (something a NC win never would've done). Oh, and most of us are quite excited that the Supreme Court will take up the DOMA and Prop 8 cases, steps that could quite literally begging the process of dismantling NOM.

Yet NOM calls these victories? Well hell—here's hoping what they see as a stellar track record more than outdoes itself in '13!
