Sunday will be the day that gay couples in New York will be able to legally marry. And naturally the National Organization for Marriage isn’t happy about it. The organization has planned protests across the state.

Maggie Gallagher, NOM chairwoman, conducted an interview with the American Family Association‘s One News Now talking about the situation. And if you ask me, based upon what she said, Gallagher is fortunate that lightning didn’t strike her during interview:

She (Gallagher) reports that her group is hearing from “voters all over the state … [who] are really upset, not only about marriage, but about the lying, the deceit, [and] the flip-flopping. It’s really a symbol of the corrupt, insider politics which has dominated Albany for years and is now reaching a new height,” Gallagher laments.

Is Gallagher for real? How can she whines about the “deceit” of the NY legislator while her organization:

If Gallagher wants to talk about deceit, she should look to the organization she helped to start. If it weren’t for deceit and corruption, NOM wouldn’t have any victories to speak of.
