... divide and conquer is the name of the game.

The leading national organization opposing same-sex marriage has sought to split the Democratic Party base by pitting African-Americans and Hispanics against gay-rights groups, according to confidential strategy memos made public by court officials in Maine.

"The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks - two key Democratic constituencies," says one of the memos. It also suggests "interrupting" the process of cultural assimilation for Hispanics in hopes of curtailing support for same-sex marriage.

The documents were part of a two-pronged legal challenge of Maine's financial disclosure laws. Still unresolved is whether the National Organization for Marriage will have to release the names of donors to its successful 2009 campaign to ban same-sex marriage in Maine.

"We're SOBs and proud of it"




"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

We are looking for a new set of messengers," one (NOM) document declares. "Here's the bottom line: Hollywood with its cultural biases is far bigger than we can hope to be. We recognize this."

It goes on to note, "But we also recognize the opportunity -- the disproportionate potential impact of proactively seeking to gather and connect a community of artists, athletes, writers, beauty queens and other glamorous noncognitive elites across national boundaries."


and they ended up with Carrie Prejean? I'd say she qualifies as noncognitive alright.
