This is giving me whiplash. I’m sure tomorrow morning there will be another reversal brought on by renewed threats from the evangelicals.


Did they realize One Million Moms didn’t have One Million Members?


Act in haste, repent at leisure. Somehow, they bungled this in such a way to arrive at a place where everyone is now somewhat annoyed, offended, or ticked off at them. That is a rare talent.


“One Million Moms” isn’t even an organization, it’s literally just an astroturf facebook page run by American Family Association — which isn’t an organization either, it’s a media company that owns shouty Christian-right radio stations. They manufacture outrage as part of their business model. AFA has been doing this fake boycott bullshit since the 1980’s, before the web, and for some reason folks fall for it every 3 or 4 months.


Too late. No take-sies backsies, no erasies.
