Just plain wow. How could ANY rational person listen to this and not be persuaded?

Oh, I just answered my own question.

Is this being aired on television?

I fucking hope so - it is far better than any of the other ads the No campaign has produced.

At 1 minute in length, it is the longest ad.

Did anyone else find those close-ups on his expressionless face rather creepy?

If only appealing to people's reason and compassion was enough, prop. eight would go down in smoke.

Is the secret weapon Dan refers to... VIOLINS?

I do think the family angle is best for appealing to the "family values" inclined undecided people. My other favorite no on 8 ad is basically the same idea, with a mother and father talking about how one of their 3 children is gay but they treat all their children equally and want them all to be happy and have families etc.

Have you seen this one yet?

I live in the SF Bay Area (the peninsula) and I was out running errands and there are people on every corner with YES ON 8 signs. I finally had to come home lest I stop the car and strangle someone. I am so saddened and ashamed by the bigotry and intolerance in this supposedly liberal county. If there are that many people in this county that feel that way, I can only imagine the numbers in the more remote areas of California. So sad and misguided.
