Remember when NOM used to pretend to be nonpartisan?

by Jeremy Hooper

In a fundraising pitch in which they yet again go after those darn activist courts and their dutiful tests to ensure the constitutionality of laws, NOM blames "the left" for all of its woes:

Not a huge surprise to see NOM becoming more partisan. After all, its president runs a side project called Act Right. Also, the org. came out for the GOP in a major way in the 2012 cycle (and lost in a big way too). The cat (or elephant, as it were) is kind of out of the bag.

But it's such a tremendously dumb strategy for the nation's one, primary, national level "protect marriage" group. They can't possibly gain ground by only catering to Republicans. Attacking "the left" is only going to tell more on-the-fence Democrats that they, even if they are yet to support marriage equality, might want to think twice about supporting an org. whose interests obviously lie (dual meaning) with the right.
