Firsthand report: NOM branded pens not as popular as they once were

by Jeremy Hooper

Bwuaf9Figaauu7CHaving weathered the Values Voter Summit in person, John Becker brings back this humorous anecdote:

The Values Voter Summit was winding down, and some of the vendors had begun to pack up their tables. The organization that was the most completely packed up and ready to leave happened to be the one I was most interested in scoping out: the National Organization for Marriage.

Undaunted, I approached the table and greeted a female staffer, one of three standing around next to the plastic tubs of materials they'd put away and were preparing to haul back to the parking lot. I asked her if she had any literature to share and she obliged, opening up the tubs and fishing out a few pamphlets, a bumper sticker, and a DVD for me. As she did so she apologized, confessing, "We've kinda been just sitting here by ourselves for hours and hours, so we decided to call it a day."

I smiled, thanked her for the information, and turned to leave. As I walked away from NOM's booth, I heard her say to her co-workers, "Wouldn't you know it, we barely have anyone stop by all day, and just when we're packed up someone comes along!"

Personally, I think that's a really good strategy for NOM: pack it up and wait for someone to come along. I mean, nothing else seems to be working.
