President Obama’s New Ad on Gay Rights

Rainbows are for everyone!

I’m not often political. I don’t really want to sit and argue with you about the hot topic of the day. I keep up as much as I can but I don’t know enough to tell you the pros and cons of Obamacare. And I never enter a fight I think I cannot win (Thanks 3 Ninjas!). But I do know about gay rights and I’ve written about it several times here.

So when I say there is only one choice in November when it comes to gay rights, I know I’m right. The closest thing Romney has to being sympathetic to gays, is that Ann Romney watches Modern Family and called it her favorite show. The creator of Modern Family then came out and told Ann Romney she could have the role of officiator of Cameron and Mitch’s wedding… as soon as it’s legal. Then Ellen DeGeneres told Ann Romney she would guest star as her roommate on the show if she’d like. That’s about as good as it gets. People joke that she loves a show in which the most beloved characters are against her party’s, and her husband’s, platform.

Obama has made it a point to fight for the rights of the gay, lesbian and transgendered communities. To showcase that, Obama released a touching documentary ad, narrated by Jane Lynch of Glee fame. Watch the video below and you’ll see why there’s only one choice for me in November:
