Why Is Maggie Gallagher at a Pro-Marriage Equality Rally?

Maine’s marriage defeat isn’t just hurting those in that northeastern state. Yesterday in the nation’s capital, D.C. for Marriage held a protest rally in Dupont Circle. And guess who was there? None other than Maggie Gallagher.

The Virginia resident — most recently seen disclosing that gay marriages were better than her own marriage — made the quick jaunt into the city, only to be called out by Michael Crawford.

Sitting stoically on a bench nearby, we expect Gallagher was likely crafting new soundbites in her head, like the one she delivered to the NYT after Maine’s marriage defeat: “It interrupts the story line that is being manufactured that suggests the culture has shifted on gay marriage and the fight is over. Maine is one of the most secular states in the nation. It’s socially liberal. They had a three-year head start to build their organization, and they outspent us two to one. If they can’t win there, it really does tell you the majority of Americans are not on board with this gay marriage thing.”
