It has come to my attention that my recent blogs have been using the category “Idiots” far more often than the category “Awesome.”
Perhaps that explains why I am so far behind in the 2012 Circle of Moms Top Political Mom Blogs contest. As of this writing, I am #23 in the rankings. Though I don’t mind losing to The Mamafesto, Blue Milk, PunditMom and current leader Monologues of Dissent, I MIND VERY MUCH that I’m 12 places behind Pamela Geller, a racist so virulent she’s being watched by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
I hereby vow to be more proactive about sharing all that is awesome with my readers. I’ll start with an heartfelt appreciation of my representative in Congress, Keith Ellison, shown here at the 2011 Minnesota State Fair with two adorable constituents and their dorky mom*:
Rep. Ellison issued the following statement yesterday, after previously confidential reports showed that the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is using a race-based strategy to pursue its decidedly non-awesome agenda:
The exposed documents reveal that NOM’s ‘strategic goal’ is to ‘drive a wedge between gays and blacks – two key Democratic constituencies.’
Our nation was founded on the principle of liberty and justice for all people—regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. NOM is clearly opposed to these basic ideals that so many Americans hold dear.
I call on people from all backgrounds to speak out against NOM’s agenda and vote NO on the anti-marriage amendment this November.
Isn’t that awesome? I bet you’re jealous that Rep. Ellison doesn’t represent you.
But there’s more! Check out this video from the House floor, taken only hours ago:
Damn! I wish Rep. Ellison had done that, and I’m so glad Rep. Rush did. But since no one can vote for either of them until November, please make sure you vote for me, NOW!
*Confidential to Ms. Geller: yes, I did let a practicing Muslim near my children. Shortly after this photo was taken, my children and I were killed in a terrorist attack.**
**Just kidding! Pamela Geller is a racist idiot! Please don’t let her win! Vote for ME!
