Note that I’m not using the term ‘Glitter Harpies’ because this one just looks like a garden-variety… not very self-actualized and independent-thinking person. She’s just somebody who thought that throwing glitter at a Presidential candidate (in this case, Michele Bachmann) is a great way to promote the message ‘Same-sex marriage advocates aren’t fringe!’ Given the amount of private ribbing that I’ve gotten about this as a same-sex marriage advocate over this, I’d like people to stop doing this, OK? Also, I’m not embedding the YouTube video of Ed Frank interviewing her because I could feel at least a hundred of my brain cells develop sympathetic anoxia from listening to her. Feel free to watch it for yourself, but: You Have Been Warned.
Anyway, I can’t wait to see what happens when somebody tries this against a candidate with actual Secret Service protection*. Also: obviously none of the Glitter Harpies/Patrol will ever, ever dare do this against Barack Obama, even though when it comes to same-sex marriage he’s easily the worst hypocrite of the bunch…
*Sarcasm, there. Please do not do this against a candidate with actual Secret Service protection. Please, please, please, please do not do this against a candidate with actual Secret Service protection.
