How about showing those folks fighting for equality in Maine some love?

I like this ad. They’re showing loving families of gays. They’re putting an emphasis on “Maine Values” to drum up state pride. And they’re calling Yes on 1 out on being from outside the state, trying to run another’s territory. I thought conservative values included a respect for greater legislative independence of the States. As in, it would be wrong for Pennsylvanians to impose their cultural stances on Mississippians.

I’ve been saying for years that we need to learn how to hit back and play rough. NOT dirty, but rough — there is a difference. Good for No On 1.

Charla Bansley isn’t even from Maine. And she’s on her second husband after having 5 kids with her first one. So on both counts I say she should stay out of a Maine debate on marriage values.

Now _that_ strikes me as an effective ad.
