|'Rick Bus' tour brings the anti-gay to Ga. ahead of Super Tuesday|

Maggie Gallagher, the former chair of the National Organization for Marriage, will bring her unique brand of crazy to Georgia ahead of the state's Super Tuesday primary as part of the Susan B. Anthony List's “Rick Bus” tour.
The tour features conservative and religious activists who support the presidential candidacy of former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and will make stops in Columbus and Augusta on Saturday, March 3; and Savannah, Macon and Atlanta on Monday, March 5.
Also joining Gallagher is former Colorado U.S. Rep Marilyn Musgrave. You may remember her as the sponsor of the failed Federal Marriage Amendment. She, like Gallagher, has made a treasure trove of anti-gay statements during her career.
“The fact of the matter is that the politics of this issue are absolutely brutal,” Musgrave said in a 2006 speech before the Family Research Council. “The stakes are very high. But, as we face the issues we're facing today, I don't think there's anything more important out there than the marriage issue.”
The tour's central focus is mainly focused on highlighting Santorum's position on abortion, but when these two ladies get together, there's a good chance to hear some anti-gay commentary along the way, too.
Here's the schedule:
Saturday, March 3, 2012
Columbus, GA - 10:00am EST
Augusta, GA - 3:30pm EST
Monday, March 5, 2012
Savannah, GA - 9:00am EST
Macon, GA - 12:30pm EST
Atlanta, GA - 3:30pm EST
