Who Will Fill Maggie Gal’s Shoes As NOM’s New Chair?

Our old pal Margaret Gallagher Srivastav (aka Maggie Gallagher or Maggie Gal, if you’re really close friends, which we are) has stepped down as the Chairman of the National Organization for Marriage. The next Chairman will have some awfully big shoes to fill, and we do mean awful. So who’s it gonna be?

Her replacement is Chapman University constitutional law professor John Eastman (who will henceforth go by JoJo, John E. Quest, and J-slyce). He is a constitutional lawyer who Think Progress refers to as “the gold standard in law professor crazy… he was one of the lead voices behind the claim that Judge Walker had to recuse from the Proposition 8 case because he has a same-sex partner.” He also ran a failed 1990 campaign to become a U.S. Congressman and another failed 2010 campaign to become California’s Attorney General. So considering his political legacy, there’s no better man we’d love to see heading NOM.

Mag the Drag will “remain on the NOM’s board and continue to work on specific projects for NOM, as well as taking on some additional” blah blah blah.

    Maggie, we hardly knew thee.

    Thank God for that.

    The reality is this – they’re fighting so hard because this is their source of income. Like Elaine Donnelly, that nutbag from the, uh, “Center for Military Readiness” – whose raison d’etre is simply to keep gays from serving in the military.

    when LGBT citizens have actual Equality across this great nation, maggie gallagher will be out of a job.


    too bad, toots. that’s the Capitalism you love so much. :D

  • Schlukitz

    Slaggie Gilamonster stepped down because her double-chin was making it difficult to see what her hands were doing to her mouth.

  • Coxygru (@coxygru)

    Will we be seeing Eastman barefoot in a federal court of law picking his toes, or in a New York theater rudely and noisily diving into her (oops! I mean his!) bag of Cheetos? Stay tuned!

  • Michael

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess it will be another stay puffed marshmallow like her.

  • Scott Rose

    Maggot Gagginwhore is working on an anti-equality book – which they obviously would want to try to get out before the 2012 elections.

  • Marie Cohn

    Apparently, abundant rolls of neck fat (and bottomless reserves of homophobia) are the only qualification for the job.

  • ~PR~

    anyone else find it strange that she is stepping down after witnessing an actor’s prortrayal of her in Black’s play?

  • christopher di spirito

    Who will fill Maggie’s shoes?

    Why, any circus elephant. Apologies to circus elephants.

  • Cam

    She is stepping down because there were too many questions about her.

    The fact is, this organization is their source of income. Of COURSE they want to get a guy with ties to politics in there.

    Villarreal, you attempt to be funny on just about every post you write, even if the topic is too sensitive to be taken in a comical sense. But I have to say, this is just hilarious.

    Fuck Gargler and fuck J-Slyce.

  • Comixbear

    Who will fill her shoes? Well, three wrestlers, a Republican senator, and two Dancing With The Stars fans to be named later…with room left over for socks.

  • Pitou

    I’m telling you. If I had a magic phone during the debate she had with Wolfson at Yale Pol Union in Oct/10,
    which is touted on her wiki page, you’d have the best evidence of how classless and a fat slob she really is. Munching on her Pork Rinds during the recent show is nothing.
    She quite literally flashed that nasty gunt at the audience, wearing a tarp trimmed a bit too short, for well into half the debate until a note was passed that she PLEASE sit like a lady.
    She’s just nasty through and through.

    You can take the girl out the trash, but never the trash out the girl.

  • Mav

    Why do all of these hardcore anti-gay people look inbred?


  • xander

    Did she really “step down” or was she pushed out? Ideas?

    Watch her, maybe, switch gears only slightly and crusade against abortion. Just a thought.

  • Codswallop

    Well, when he inevitably fails he can always work at the circus as the Chinless Wonder.

  • Top to Bottom

    Can we step away from the fat jokes and focus on the more important issue? The bitch is just evil.

  • MattGMD

    One has to wonder about the sociopathy that fuels these allegedly=hetero people to be so obsessed with The Gays. Mega-Maggie could be using her energy for something productive instead of imposing her misery on others.
