"brain-dead bigots"

the new york times's frank rich provides possibly the clearest and most thorough summary of where the anti-gay movement is today. and it ain't pretty for them:
"Easy to mock as (National Organization for Marriage's anti-gay marriage television ad) 'Gathering Storm' may be, it nonetheless bookmarks a historic turning point in the demise of America’s anti-gay movement.

What gives the ad its symbolic significance is not just that it’s idiotic but that its release was the only loud protest anywhere in America to the news that same-sex marriage had been legalized in Iowa and Vermont. If it advances any message, it’s mainly that homophobic activism is ever more depopulated and isolated as well as brain-dead."
rich's full rant as well as stephen colbert's version of "the gathering storm" ad are not to be missed.
