Poor NOM has another stock photo fail

by Jeremy Hooper

NOM made this meme for Mother's Day:

941360 485614298177342 44987510 N

Only thing? According to the stock photo description, this isn't a mother and daughter, at least not necessarily. The photo is described as being a bride and her bridesmaid:

The bridesmaid could be a daughter, born either before this pending marriage or while part of a prior union. But if that's the case, is that really what this "traditional marriage" group wants to push as it's Mother's Day meme?

Tip to NOM: Start using real photos of you, your supporters, and your families, and you won't have this problem. I mean, everyone uses stock photos every now and then. But at NOM, carefully-posed models are the rule, not the exception. They are also one of the silly elements that have turned this organization into one of the most easily parody-able in all of all American politics.
