Maggie Gallagher's next gig: convincing libertarians to be social conservatives

by Jeremy Hooper

Come fall, the National Organization For Marriage co-founder and past president will appear on a panel for the extremely anti-gay Family Research Council, where she, conservative pollster Kellyanne Conway, and a Rand Paul guy will try to build a bridge between limited government and sticking your nose into people's bedrooms (among other places):

One hundred years out, many parts of our current political climate will look downright bizarre. While the idea that abject discrimination means "pro-family" will certainly take a place of prominence, the notion that trying to pass federal legislation that rolls back a minority population's rights is somehow a limited government idea might just take the lead in the future's "what were they thinking?!" loopbacks.

But best of luck making the case, Maggie. Personally I suspect they will thank you for this novel strategy. And by they, I mean Democrats who like winning presidential elections.
