Marriage Monument-um

If same-sex marriage isn't stopped, marrying national monuments will be all the rage.

Dibs on Mt. Rushmore.

In this brief video, Tamara Scott, Iowa director for Concerned Women for America and the co-chair of Michele Bachmann's Iowa campaign, says marriage equality will lead to polyamory and "objective sexualism," where people marry inanimate objects, and cites the case of a woman who considers herself married to the Eiffel Tower.

Imagine the size of the conjugal bed.

It's too easy to make fun of the way Scott pronounces "polyamory."  Instead I'd like to point out that the other figure in the video, Iowa antigay activist Bob Vander Plaats, is himself doing a good impression of an inanimate object.  Anybody feel a yearning to marry him?
