NOM Ad Running In Vermont Durring The Rachel Maddow Show | Lez Get Real

There are 3 comments on the lezgetreal.com story from Apr 10, 2009, titled NOM Ad Running In Vermont Durring The Rachel Maddow Show | Lez Get Real. In it, lezgetreal.com reports that:

Advertisement is about reaching the most people with the most effect. However, one has to question the effects of running an advertisement for the National Organization for Marriage during one of cable network’s most liberal two hour window. That is correct, NOM bought advertising during The Rachel Maddow Show. For those who are baffled by this, NOM is trying to influence the direction of New York and New Hampshire, the two states which border on Vermont. These advertisements are bought on the local market, and run across the whole zone. But, one has to question the wisdom of NOM buying advertising for an entire state which has already passed marriage equality legislation.

Imagine what all the millions of dollars they've put into this could help those in need in the bad economy but Christian people don't care about the needy only themselves and their bigoted, sick, twisted agenda of hatred, oppression, and discrimination. I'll tell these people to go straight to hell. Let's call them the National Organization for Hatred. They are no different than Hitler's army of Nazis or the KKK. They are the same thing, the only thing different from those times is the minority. The government should take away the tax exempt status of the churches that participate in this.

Let's see... Rachel Maddow is an out lesbian. That's a widely know fact. So some braintrust who is behind this group of haters (led by Maggie Gallagher, the right-wing nut-job anti-gay so-called journalist) decided to spend tons of money to run this ad during Rachel's show?

I just wonder clueless person (or maybe a group of clueless persons) decided to do it thinking there was no way Rachel would find a way to "thump" them in the process. Or did they just not do their homework and actually know who they were dealing with?

Either way, I'm THRILLED that they PAID good money to give her the incentive she needed to make fools of them. Thanks HRC for releasing those interview tapes...however you got hold of them.

I just LOVE it when so-called "Marriage Defenders" are shown to be fools. And it doesn't hurt that Maggie Gallagher is one of the ones with at least a little egg on her face.

Thanks, Rachel!!

So what were they thinking? Have they never watched Maddow? Are they so insular that they don't know she's lesbian? Will they advertise on Ellen next?

Kudos to Maddow for helping NOM waste their money. Now make it perfect by donating an equal amount to EQCA or GLAD or HRC....
