‘Opposite Marriage’ Video is So Easy to Spoof

<a href="http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/6eddb255b2" title="from FOD Team, Jane Lynch, Alicia Silverstone, Lance Bass, George Takei, Liz Feldman, Jason Lewis, Sarah Chalke, and Sophia Bush “>A Gaythering Storm from Jane Lynch

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) released an ad about storms and being afraid of the gays. You can watch it here. The kind of stuff that may have resonated back before Melissa Etheridge came out – before Ellen Degeneres was a day-time icon, before gay marriage was legal in four states. Anyway, the point is – you don’t want to compete with the gays for wit – they win every time, people. There are about a zillion spoofs of the NOM video and this seems to be the best one we’ve seen…today.

The California Election Post-Mortem

prop_8.jpgFrom what we understand, Californians passed a measure that would give more rights to chickens and measure that would give LESS rights to homosexual couples.

According to the LAT, southern California was totally for the ban of same sex marriages.

Melissa Etheridge says we can forget her taxes on Daily Beast.

NYT reports that a gay marriage ban will be a gay business and gay money loss for the state:

David Paisley, a San Francisco-based marketing executive with a specialty in gay tourism, said California had four of the nation’s top 10 destinations for gay travelers: San Francisco, Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Mr. Paisley said that it was too early to speculate on the exact economic impact of Proposition 8, but that some public relations damage might have already been done.

Of course LA Weekly’s Patrick Range McDonald has been following everything that has happened with Proposition 8 since the beginning. Just don’t call him a blogger. Ahem.
