National Organization for Marriage wasted at least $80 thou on anti-Paul ads and more money sending Brown to Iowa. Why not ask for more?

But first . . . :

The top two winners in Iowa—separated by a hair’s breadth—were both men who signed NOM’s Marriage Pledge, frontrunner [sic] and winner Gov. Mitt Romney and the incredible, surprise come-from-behind (to within eight votes) Sen. Rick Santorum.

 “I am important. I am relevant. Look at me. Look at ME:”

I was there at the caucus in Waterloo, Iowa, watching democracy happen. It’s an incredible experience! I wish you could have been there with me.

It wasn’t the crackpottery and those newsletters that downed Paul. It had to be NOM:

And once again a truth we prove over and over again became clear: It’s a really bad idea to be for gay marriage (or, in Ron Paul’s case, just to avoid opposing it) if you are a Republican.

Ah. Here it is:

As we begin a new year, full of new challenges, consider whether you can stand with us. When you give to NOM—whether you can give $20 or $200—you are helping to forge a future in which marriage is protected, for your children, grandchildren, and the generations to come.
