"Gathering Storm: The Sequel!"

Remember this train wreck, courtesy of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM)?

Well, believe it or not, it looks like lightning may strike twice. Unfortunately. And this time, it's striking Maine.

From the Kennebec Journal:
Casting Director James Stiles is putting out the word that he’s looking for two 'real Maine' women to appear in a television ad produced by supporters of traditional marriage.

Stiles is looking for a 'teacher type' and a 'working waitress type,' both in the 35-45 age range. If you want to try out, he’s holding auditions from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 2) at the Howard Johnson in South Portland.

If you’re hired, it’s a three day gig that pays $500 a day.
Well, if you're a struggling actor, you'll definitely get attention. Just maybe not the kind you want.

Which leads me to my next thought. They need actors to spread their message. The first pro-marriage equality ad to hit the air waves in Maine used real Mainers.

How sad for NOM. NOT!

  1. "working waitress type"? I can see it now: "Boo hoo I was forced to wait on a gay couple for their anniversary!"
