We know they're working overtime in the four marriage states (MN, MD, ME, and WA), hoping to keep their biased, bankrolling babies alive for another day. But the National Organization For Marriage has also spent the past couple of days trying to shape a number of high profile races on the national stage on behalf of a number of GOP candidates. Among them: Todd "legitimiate rape" Akin, Josh "my own relatives called me out for being anti-gay" Mandel, and Mitt "I signed NOM's chilling marriage pledge" Romney.
