ProtectMarriage’s Anti-Science Selective Plagiarism and Self-Victimization

I realized after I wrote the headline that it could probably apply to just about anything ProtectMarriage might ever put out, but it seemed the most apt description of the latest blog post from Ron Prentice. Normally, when a PM blog post goes up, I quote the entire thing verbatim and analyze it. I’m not […]

Protect Marriage: Whah, We Have To Work Sooooo Hard!

Andy Pugno is back! And he’s ready to waste our time again about the Prop 8 case. Today, though, he’s actually talking about something that no one else is really reporting on, so I’ll give my best analysis based on what I know. My hunch is that he’s making a big deal out of it […]

A Very Quick Prop 8 Update And Another Whiny Protect Marriage Blog Post

As we await closing arguments to be scheduled, here are a couple little updates from the Prop 8 case: » There was a chance the closing arguments might be televised. But, it doesn’t seem like they will. » Olson and Boies have filed a 294-page report detailing the unconstitutionality of Proposition 8. (Click here for […]

Protect Marriage: Ron Prentice Reminds Us, “WHAAAAHHHHH!”

That’s right, Ron Prentice has another post up on the Protect Marriage blog to remind us what cry-baby-sissy-pants the Yes on 8 supporters are. As always, I’m here to offer a paragraph by paragraph analysis and response. This post was quite petty, so I rely on some humor and snark to get us through it. […]

Protect Marriage: Ron Prentice Reminds You NOT To Follow The Trial

Creating Change kept me from getting to this wonderful Protect Marriage post until now, but I want to give it due treatment. Ron Prentice, Executive Director of Protect Marriage, has a cameo on the PM blog to remind us of the limited amount of information PM really wants to discuss about the trial. Despite being […]

Protect Marriage, Day 12: We’re Still Not Sure How This Trial Works

So, the trial is over for a while, but Andy Pugno has to remind us how little the defense understands this trial before we can move on with our lives post-#prop8. (I’m personally entering rehabilitation for my CTRL + R carpal tunnel that has developed.) Presentation of Evidence Concludes in Perry v Schwarzenegger Federal Trial […]

Protect Marriage, Day 11: We’re Not Watching The Actual Trial, Just Making It Up

Seriously, their witnesses know squat (see the roundup), but Andy Pugno is so proud and thinks the plaintiffs look so pathetic. What trial has he been watching? Spaghetti Strategy Once again, religion was on trial this morning as a lawyer for the challengers to Prop 8 cross-examined political scientist Kenneth Miller. In their desperate attempt […]

Protect Marriage, Day 10: Quantity, Not Quality! …Oh Wait!

On a day when their witness got confused about whether Prop 8 passed or not, the defense is trying eagerly to hide the fact that Boies continues to decimate their “expert” witness. (See my roundup here.) Still, Andy Pugno is here to remind us the extent of their delusions and their ability to see everything […]

Prop 8 Trial Week 2 Weekend Updates

Tomorrow, the plaintiffs will rest after showing some videos (possibly more of the defense’s experts’ depositions that hurt their case?), and then it will be the defense’s turn to call witnesses. Only two of their experts are left, so it’s possible we might get through all the testimony by the end of week three! Here’s […]

Protect Marriage, Day 9: Umm… We’re Still Right!

The longer this trial progresses, the easier it is to see why Protect Marriage doesn’t want you to actually see the details of the proceedings. In fact, it might even be fair to assume that the reason yesterday’s cross-examination lasted five hours is just to make navigating Dr. Herek’s testimony unwieldy. It’s actually pretty easy […]
