Best. Political Ad. Ever
Richard Tisei knows about being different. An openly-gay Republican, Tisei is the minority leader of the Massachusetts Senate, and is in a battle to defeat eight-term Democrat John Tierney for the state's 6th Congressional District. In a state that has two times as many Democrats as it has Republicans. Tisei has eschewed his party's stance on equal marriage rights and is pro-choice.
Wanting to show a little of that maverick streak, Tisei has created the political ad we all wish we could enjoy, especially given it's from such a serene state. Watch and enjoy — I wholeheartedly have approved this ad. Oh yeah, and you can turn up the speakers on this one... And close your eyes.
The Times, by the way, has just endorsed Tierney. Maybe they haven't seen the ad.
