Happy Hour News Briefs
…and drive you to drink in a good way, today: Brian Brown, the president of NOM (National Organization for Marriage) has been pleading all week for donations. It seems that once the ‘mos could legally marry, his fundraising fell through the floor.
Dear Marriage Supporter: I wish I didn’t have to write you about this, but I don’t know who else to turn to for help. NOM is in the midst of a critically-important Matching Fund Drive that began on Monday. We need to raise $100,000 to avoid making drastic budget cuts, and we’re way behind. Can you help with an immediate financial contribution? Whatever amount you can give will be doubled thanks to a matching gift from a generous donor.
Brown doesn’t know who to turn to because he’s already milked the marks dry.
I have to be honest with you, right now we’re running very low on funds and are counting on the success of this Matching Fund Drive to give us a boost so that we can continue with all the critical programs we have underway.
It costs a lot to continuously fail, I guess.
Senator Charles Grassley, chairman of the US Senate Judiciary Committee, said yesterday that he expects there will be another vacancy on the Supreme Court as soon as this summer. Other sources have said the same thing in recent weeks.
And you need the money to do what, exactly?
That means that we need to be ready at a moment’s notice to spring into action to urge the appointment of a strong constitutionalist to the Court, someone who will have the courage to vote to reverse the illegitimate, anti-constitutional Obergefell ruling that redefined marriage.
I don’t think you really need to worry, Bri. Trump already has a long list of people vetted by all the Wingnuttian Think Tanks, and it isn’t a matter of having another Justice: you have to have a case that would make the SCOTUS re-think their previous ruling, and frankly, that ain’t gonna happen.
Brian, you ran a good grift after Maggie left NOM in a ditch, but it’s over. Your fundraising fell off because people know a lost cause when they see it.
