Gathering Storm of Hot Air

Talk about giving straight people a bad name! Do we really seem this self-important and stupid?

Look, we're all free to disagree, but the NOM's original spot is so nonsensical that I don't even have a response. The leaps in logic are so vast that it's impossible to span the distance. How, exactly, would gay marriage impact a doctor's ability to do his or her job? Actually, what storm?

Yes. I am afraid. But only afraid that folks might not have the media savvy to see through this crap. On the positive side, this does have a "last stand" sense of desperation to it. Maybe we're almost there.

Colbert, as usual, is spot on in his critique. Funny or Die has also put up a spoof.

Good Lord....will people seriously buy into that ad? Maybe the same people who called the Coast Guard after Gilligan's Island first aired to report a boat lost at sea after a 3-hour tour...seriously happened. That ad is ridiculous.

It reminds me of the 1970s - "If the ERA passes, we'll all have to use the same bathroom - men's rooms will be illegal." or words to that effect
