Last Friday, I told you about how Miss California was quickly becoming the right’s new favorite for telling Perez Hilton what time it was when it comes to same-sex marriage. Today, Ben Smith reports she’s signed on to speak for the National Association for Marriage:
The president of the National Association for Marriage says she sees the emergence of Miss California Carrie Prejean as a leading spokeswoman for the fight against same-sex marriage as a chance to turn around daunting demographic tides in support of expanding marriage.
"Carrie represents the voice of a new generation of people, and shows that here really are young people out here who care about this marriage issue," she said, saying Prejean disproves "the idea that the next generation is hopeless and it’s all over."
Public polling suggests young voters have shifted toward favoring same-sex marriage, while older voters strongly oppose it.
I’m sure the kids are going to hurry right up and get over to that anti-gay marriage rally now that Miss California is going to be there! Right. The truth is, kids don’t care because they don’t see what the fuss is about. See, kids are secure enough in their sexuality to know that if two men or two women love each other, it’s their business and it’s not going to have any affect on their own personal lives. I suppose kids will be there, but they’ll be forced to go by their square, homosexual fearing parents. Old folks will definitely be there, especially the cranky ones with nothing else to do. You’re not trying to reach them, are you NAM?
Well, good luck Miss California. Enjoy your summer!
