Points for accuracy

You can say a few "choice" things about the anti-gay and lesbian group 'The National Organization for Marriage" (and please do) but as recently you cannot call them subtle.  Yesterday, it was a handy-dandy memo plotting how to turn African-Americans against Gays and Lesbians in a "helter-skelter manner" Charles Manson might admire.

But, to quote Dan Savage, it gets better.

The have a plan for infiltrating the cultural zeitgeist to turn us all against the idea of same-sexual marriage:
We are looking for a new set of messengers," one 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."
So far their most famous "get" is Carrie Prejean. I'll leave it to you to decide whether they got "elite", "glamorous" or  "noncognitive" out of that acquisition.

Translation: a stupid person we can use.

Just a tad cynical.

So they are looking for brain dead rich folks? Fortunately for them, there is not a shortage.
