NOM president is 'anxious' (*about losing his six figure salary built around discrimination)

by Jeremy Hooper

Every year around this time, the National Organization For Marriage strikes the fear of God in its donors, telling them that their failure to give MORE, MORE, MORE might make or break the following year. This year, Brian Brown is using an anxiety motif:

Some try yoga. Others opt for Xanax. But as for Brian and his anxiety? It's his continued war against gay people's benign and peaceful inclusion into society that does the trick. We all have our ways of self-medicating.

But really, I'd say B-dog is a bit late with the anxiety. I mean, we started 2013 with only nine states, and now we have a whopping eighteen (plus D.C.). Oh, and there was that major DOMA fight that NOM lost (and lost BIG). For someone like Brian, whose hefty annual salary is fully built around convincing people that his is a viable enterprise for the purpose of "winning" victories against the marriage equality movement, I'm thinking now should be less a time for "anxious..." and more a time for "sorry."
