Just in from our Brian Brown Fantasyland reporter: Reps. Ros-Lehtinen and Hanna are apparently not in politics

by Jeremy Hooper

As you surely know by now, nearly one hundred right-leaning politicos who currently serve in Congress or state legislatures, head up organizations, strategize for campaigns (including the ones held just four months ago), work on the Hill, have and will likely again run for office, talk on TV, write columns, advise their party, and do any other number of jobs that fit the bill of working in politics have signed on to an amicus brief calling for marriage equality. So what does Republican Brian Brown, someone who is only in politics by virtue of his Catholic-motivated want to discriminate, have to say about this? Well, he just writes them off as a group of nobodies and has-beens, natch:

None of these people are actively in politics. They are not running for office because they know … supporting same-sex marriage will end your career if you’re a Republican,” said Brian Brown, NOM's president. “There’s overwhelming support for traditional marriage in the Republican party, that’s why it’s part of the party platform, and any attempt by the establishment to redefine marriage and redefine what it means to be a conservative will mean the death of the Republican party.” [NBC News]

No, Brian, what you means is you don't want these folks working in politics, at least not on your side of the aisle. That's not the same thing, dear.

**My mistake, there are actually now 131 names on the brief
