NOM can't even do its year-end graphics right

by Jeremy Hooper

Look at this graphic that NOM is using for its year-end fundraiser:

Don't even concern yourself with the stated among given. When it comes to financial reporting, NOM is like the less credible little brother of the boy who cried "wolf." I'm convinced they just input the figures at will, with the money coming in dependent on those secret donors and not any sort of grassroots. Their financial certainly shows that to be true.

What I really find ridiculous is the graphic itself. I mean, why the scales setup? Why do the days remaining have a weight attached to them? And why is that weight apparently greater than $50,000? I mean, I know every day is precious and all, but I'm pretty sure those mortal hours are more priceless than they are monetary. So why the poundage on the countdown side? Why must the days lose their own mass whenever NOM gets a shiny new penny?

Then again, this is an organization that thinks America's own scales of justice are not only okay with certain American taxpayers being expressly banned in federal law—they actually insist on it. Forgive me if I reject their sense of balance.
