As a survivor of gun violence the last couple of days have been both time consuming and frustrating. More on that tomorrow. Sometimes National Organization for Marriage Seems to exist solely as a welcome source of sardonic amusement.

This particular “letter” goes on and on and on. After the drivelectomy what’s left is the short piece that follows, send us money, gay marriage is not inevitable, we are victims of mean homosexuals and SEND US EVEN MORE MONEY. Uh, did we mention sending us money?


Even someone as spectacularly uninformed as Brian Brown knows that this is misleading. There is no such thing as an ad hoc petition to the Supreme Court. Moreover, once the Justices have heard a case, they will not receive anything relative to a case.

By the way, yesterday about 6,400 people signed this moronic “petition.” Another 100 have signed it since this mass email went out     and that includes any of NOM’s “executive refinements” to the count.

As we know, about 2,000 poor schnooks showed up for NOM’s marriage march in DC last month. NOM continues to claim that it was 10,000 while producing photos of the “crowd” that show about 1,000. They think everyone is as stupid as, well, Thomas Peters for example.

You would think that, an online demonstration, even one as pathetic as this phony “petition,” would appeal to three of four times as many people as those willing to schlep to DC. Six thousand five hundred.

If NOM is going to lie about a petition to the Supreme Court; If they are going to lie about attendance at their march; If they are going to lie about gay people like they do daily; Then why have they drawn the line at the “petition” count? You’d think that they would have that sucker up to 50,000 or more by now.

Oh, one more thing. Check out this photo from the mailer. First of all, that sign makes absolutely no sense; Who is lying to children and what lie are they telling? Don’t bother NOM with petty details. Secondly, that poor kid hasn’t the first clue what that sign is supposed to mean or why she is carrying it.

Just imagine the outrage if we used a child that age in that manner.
