    Dude, it’s Good Friday. Can we not talk about nom nom nom nom when I’m fasting.

    Fish sticks for dinner!
    /Not a gay fish.

  2. comradepaulson

    I am interested in this organization’s ideas and would like to sign up for its newsletter.

  3. Scarab

    Go for it. I’d estimate that about 2 million of the 300 million people in America support their viewpoints.

  4. AfghanVet

    They simply cannot help but produce comedy gold for all. And we all thought irony was gone with Bush.

  5. magic titty

    That is ambitious. I haven’t fucked the entire nationwide population of men since 10th grade.

  6. Toonces

    Ok, so between teabagging for taxes and M4M for gay marriage, I think the only logical next step must be “Tossing your Salad against illegal immigration”. On account of all the lettuce picking and what not.

  7. The Cold Sea

    Instead of Twitter for social networking, they should use Bitter.

    Thanks, I’m here all day.

  8. comradepaulson

    [re=286515]Scarab[/re]: They’re asking us to fuck 2 million people? Okay, but I think I may need some supplies for that. Tell me, does NOM provide the lube?

  9. Toonces

    Ok, I’m a dumbass, it has been pointed out my last comment was in the freakin’ article. I thought my friend made a funny. Carry on.

  10. comradepaulson

    [re=286544]Toonces[/re]: YOU STOLE MY IDEA! See previous thread on the teabagtwats. I can’t wait for tossed salad against illegal immigration. Oh, I can’t wait! The other obvious choice would, of course, be Dirty Sanchez’s against illegal immigration.

  11. Advocatus_Diaboli

    Nom nom nom. That is the sound of a gay elephant getting teabagged by his partner Iowan husband.

  12. Crank Tango

    Maybe they will “pack” some canuck illegals onto an antique boat in Ohio for the “Cleveland Steamer All Over Canada’s Ass Protest” Fox will organize next?

  13. queeraselvis v 2.0

    Here’s something about Mary:

    She has testified as an expert witness on marriage before the U.S. Senate and in various state legislatures.

    First, I wasn’t aware that there was such a thing as an “expert witness on marriage.” Second, how many seconds until Mary’s husband gets caught in a Westchester park bathroom with his pants around his ankles and trying to seduce a cop?

    [re=286544]Toonces[/re]: The next big thing will be GOP-sponsored events in protest of the deficit: “Don’t let Obama snowball you!” parties.

  15. One Yield Regular

    If this isn’t a joke, I’m still having a difficult time with this group’s appropriation of gay-world rangelanda – “rainbow coalition,” the 2M4M/MSM thing, that co-joined rings logo – not to mention that at least half the actors in that ad were clearly walking down Queen Wilhelmina’s Tulip Path.

  16. Kev-O-Tron

    So I get a little wound up over this subject but I find these Nommers to be curious folk. I’m trying to figure out the driving philosophy behind the Nommer movement and it seems to be gay = icky. That’s just surprisingly base and laughably fear-based. I expect a little more nuance from the bitters.

  17. lampadadog

    “Yeah there’s a storm on the loose, gay folks now can wed.
    They’re no longer silent, all freedoms are dead.
    Cannot decode – my whole life spins into a frenzy.

    Help I’m steppin’ into the Twilight Zone
    Vermont’s a madhouse, Christians being stoned
    Two million for marriage, jump into your cars
    You know where to go, now that Iowa’s gone too far!”

  18. daisy chain

    [re=286544]Toonces[/re]: Finally, salad tossing party! We will toss the salads of every congress person until they come together on immigration reform!

  19. 2m4m

    I should point out that the brilliant folk over at NOM failed to register 2M4M.org, the obvious domain for their campaign (and where people who hear about it naturally go).

    They don’t own it.

    I do.

    So I’ve recruited some friends and we’re putting up our own site there.

  20. lobo2009

    Can someone explain to me the, ” I’m a doctor and I can’t express my religion” coomment? What does this have to do with keeping marriage a hetero-only club?

  21. snideinplainsight

    NOM.org = nation of men, imagine my surprise.

    “We are not a gay organization, though some of our members may be gay. We are not feminized, politically correct men, though our members exhibit varying degrees of civilization.”

    Fun with acronyms!

    [re=286645]lobo2009[/re]: The only thing I can think of that some fertility doctors refuse to treat lesbians. That’s all I got.

  23. queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=286673]Dave J.[/re]: Like I said earlier, husband getting arrested for solicitation in 3…2…

  24. IceCreamEmpress

    Here’s a photo of Maggie, fwiw. The more you know.

    Was she voted “Girl Most Likely to Have a Gay Husband She Met in Show Choir” in college?

  25. MarSF

    [re=286673]Dave J.[/re]: Arghh. She is K-Lo’s “better looking” twin. I think these ladies are just upset that ANYONE is having sex because it is obvious that they are not.

  26. MarSF

    [re=286645]lobo2009[/re]: I took it to mean that Maggie wanted a shout-out in there to all the pro-lifers who are now somehow “forced” to educate patients about family planning options.

  27. cranky

    oh i thought you were being clever with the 2m4m, but they are just stupid.

    two meows for me?
    two men for me?
    too many for me!
    too manly for me!
    too messy for me!
    too measly for me!

  28. MarSF

    The NOM blog has (moderated) comments! Maybe you can troll over there for some hot W4W, M4M Top/Bottom action.

  29. smashtheduck

    http://2m4m.org/
    Wingnutz aren’t so good at this whole interwebz thing. Someone was able to register the .org before they did. He’s still building it but it’s already teh awesome.

  30. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    [re=286587]NoWireHangers[/re]: I thought it was two men looking for four men to tie then up, slap them, and make them renounce their heterosexuality. But yours makes more sense.

    [re=286636]2m4m[/re]: You sir, are a true American.

  31. grevillea

    Coming soon: our great new video “2 girls 1 cup”, about two sassy roommates having fun learning to bake, while saving themselves for marriage.

  32. Bruno

    [re=286636]2m4m[/re]: Please keep us posted of developments over the weekend. We are ready to spread the good word to the enemy sites where we are embedded

  33. keepinitrealyo

    Tom Lerher, the political satirist, said he quit comedy in the late sixties when real politics rendered satire unnecessary. Dam NOMMERS, trying to kill comedy!

  34. davesnothere

    [re=286549]comradepaulson[/re]: No, that’s available separately, from NOM’s sister organization, the National Organization for Indiscriminate Anonymous Unprotected Buttsex.

  36. oldguy

    They could get Rev. Moon to perform the 2M ceremonies. Or is it 1M marriages, with 2M men? Or 2M marriages with 4M men. Come on up to Vermont.

  37. mr. wunnerful

    [re=286636]2m4m[/re]: WIN! please start soliciting hardcore gay-porn advertisers. astroglide adspace would be priceless

  38. Hunger Tallest Palin

    Dear fReichtards,
    Yes, we’re picking up on all your increasingly desperate hints. No, we’re not going to meet you in the mens room near gate 12 at MSP. Quit calling us.

  39. Bruno

    [re=286636]2m4m[/re]: Great job with the site so far! In answering your question on how to reach Rachel Maddow, I suggest keep posting here. It seems Maddow & Stuart’s writers get a fair number of ideas from Wonkette, just give them 24-36 hours to catch up…

  40. 2m4m

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. Monday was incredible with the media coverage we got, and today I got a lot of requests for interviews later this week, so it looks like we’ll be able to keep the site in the cycle.

    That was the whole goal, of course – once we realized NOM failed to get the domain we wanted to make sure that we put good content on it and kept the wind out of NOM’s sails. More searches for “2M4M” are going to 2m4m.org than any other site, and almost no results linking to NOM, themselves.

    Oops :-)
