Update: For a Republican, AKSARBENT likes Cindy Golding, who is definitely not a yes-woman to her party's Neanderthal establishment. But in September, she told iowapolitics.com,
...that Iowans deserve to have a vote on the issue, but declined to shed light on her personal beliefs about same-sex marriage.
"I have friends who are in gay relationships, and friends who abhor gay relationships,” Golding said, proposing that Iowans should make their own “cultural” decisions.
AKSARBENT takes that as a yes to supporting the advancement of the constitutional amendment that would make all Iowa gay couples strangers to the law; therefore we would encourage every gay Iowan to vote for Cindy Golding's opponent, Liz Mathis, and to work hard for Golding's defeat.
NOM, which is teaming up to elect Golding with Bob Vander Plaats, head of the Iowa Family Leader, has lost campaign disclosure court fights to hide the identities of its supporters in Rhode Island, Maine, Washington State. and now says it will defy the law in Minnesota, too.

Even when NOM (you can see its interlocking rings logo painted on the bus) joins with two other organizations, as it did on this Iowa tour, it still can't attract more than a handful of followers — in the real, non-PhotoShopped world.
Here is Maggie Gallagher, former head of NOM, being ridiculed for her mean-spiritedness.
