NOM lowers bar on 'amazing' accomplishments

Amazing? Really? I mean, even if we take them at their word, this isn't like some big win. They asked for money and their committed allies in discrimination handed some over. That's the way political special interests work. It's not really an occasion for sky-explosives.
