California Progressives commit one of the best inadvertent puns I’ve ever seen

The one thing you can count on with Progressives is that anything that happens in Washington, D.C. — any legislation, any election, and any legal decision — is a reason to go out and beg for money.  Within hours of the Supreme Court decision that effectively strikes down Prop. 8, making gay marriage legal in California, a group called “Courage Campaign” sent out an email begging for money and, in the process, created one of the funniest inadvertent puns I’ve seen in a long time:

VICTORY! Now let's leave no gay behind

If you haven’t caught what makes it so funny, here’s a hint: read the very first line aloud:

VICTORY! Now let's leave no gay behind2

    I’ve known several gays in my life; this was no inadvertent pun.

    Ah I see.
    Sexual pleasure was always an interesting tool of the occult to control its members. Although I personally didn’t count on it much to produce warriors of loyalty and prowess.

    What bugs me is that state’s can no longer abide their own laws and constitutions. They’re targeted with money from other states to make the dissenters just like them. If you don’t like or agree with California, where can you escape to if everywhere else is the same?

    The Iron Curtain was designed to not allow people into countries where Soviet laws could not affect them. The solution was thus to export Soviet ideas and laws. It wasn’t in time to make any difference to the Soviets, but their weapons of mass deception are still with us.
    When they build that fence near Mexico, it won’t be to keep people out. But to keep people with money in.

    shirleyelizabeth — You know, back when there was a country called Yugoslavia, the Slovenians were asking precisely the same question.  Closer to Western Europe geographically and economically than the rest of Yugoslavia, they paid a disproportionate share of the taxes collected by Belgrade.  But while Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, Slovenians, et al. were all nominally equal (ruthlessly enforced by Tito while he was alive) the Old Boy Network of Serbs had informally consolidated power amongst themselves.
    Feeling that they were contributing far more than they were receiving, and that the relationship was no longer working out, the Slovenians announced their intention to leave the union.
    Ha!  Silly Slovenians!  There was a Yugoslav army barracks right there in Slovenia!  (Which, thinking a few steps ahead, the Slovenians had completely surrounded and outgunned before making the announcement, so those guys were stuck just nervously looking out their windows.)
    Ha!  Silly Slovenians!  There was a highway leading straight up into Slovenia by which a federal armored column could come to the relief of the surrounded barracks!  (Which, thinking a few steps ahead, the Slovenians had very well defended.  The armored column along the narrow little highway worked out about as well for the Serb-dominated federal army as it had for the Allies at Arnhem and a few years later in Korea.  The Slovenians were grudgingly allowed to leave, and that was that.)
    Wow, I must be in the mood for geometry tonight, because I seem to be off on a tangent…
