A good issue ad

This ad from the Human Rights Campaign and Freedom to Marry, who will run it in Tampa during the Republican National Convention. It goes to show, first, that not all Republican politicians are troglodytes, despite the fact it sometimes seems they are, and, second, that even otherwise awful people (Dick Cheney) can still be right sometimes.

While I seriously doubt this ad will have any effect whatsoever on Republicans at their party’s convention, due to the stranglehold the American Taliban has on that party, it’s nevertheless a good ad because it’s positive and upbeat, and because it demonstrates it’s possible to be a Republican and support marriage equality. Those two are very good reasons why this is a good ad.

I like sharing good ads from our side of the political divide. I like even more that there have been so many positive ones lately.
