NOM is going for yet another bus tour despite embarrassing failures for the past bus tours. This one is their "Judge Bus Tour."
Bleeding Heartland reports:
On Monday, Family Research Council Action and the National Organization for Marriage will launch a "Judge Bus Tour" to campaign against retaining Iowa Supreme Court justices Marsha Ternus, Michael Streit and David Baker. Organizers will take their bus through 45 Iowa counties, stopping at 20 planned rallies. Featured speakers at the rallies will include nationally-known heroes on the religious right: Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins, National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown, Representative Steve King of Iowa's fifth Congressional district, and former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.
My hunch is the big purple judge-hating bus will drive more votes toward retaining than ousting the Supreme Court justices.
I completely agree. Iowans are reasonable well educated people who can see through this crap faster than santorum runs.
Tour stops and dates after the jump
Nevertheless, NOM and Rick Santorum should not be left alone to meddle with the lives of Iowa's gays and lesbians.
