The Straw That Broke It

The Washington Post finally got me to cancel my subscription after publishing this little fluff piece on the head of the “National Organization for Marriage” moving to DC. One choice bit:

“I have gay people who are friends and family,” he says. “We can disagree on all sorts of things and still care about each other.” And later, “Of course, I have to take their arguments seriously. This issue is important. Ideas have consequences.”

Ah yes, the old “I have friends” like these people whom I’m actively working against. Because you really care about people when you want to deny them civil protections under the law. Right.

Nary a critical thought in the article, nothing illuminating on his organization’s goals, just a little fluff piece that makes his form of bigotry look oh-so-normal-and-rational. Thanks, Washington Post, I won’t miss having this crap delivered to my door.

Right Wing Fraud

Orchestrated “grass-roots” intimidation of Congressmembers regarding health care reform.

A shame this can’t/won’t get prosecuted.
