NOM lowers bar on 'amazing' accomplishments

by Jeremy Hooper

Almost every day for the past several months (and sometimes two or three times a day), the anti-gay, anti-equality, pro–wrong-side-of-history organization that does business as the National Organization For Marriage has begged its supporters for cash.

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.
