AARP: Pro-Gay, Anti-Soldier
When you think AARP, you probably think of two things: (1) highly mobilized gray-hairs, and (2) discounts on low-sodium chicken platters.
Now some people on the right want you to think of gay marriage and Sunni insurgency. The New York Times this morning reported that the lobbyists who brought you the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" have been contracted to promote the agenda of USA Next, a conservative lobbying group. To build support, USA Next is portraying AARP which opposes the White House's pseudo-plan for privatizing Social Security as some kind of liberal extremist group.
