Since I was a tad hard on the Vote No on Prop 8 side the other day, credit where credit is due–these two are very good ads. Here and here via Michael D. at Balloon-Juice.
They still don’t get at the other issue I think which is calling out not just fear tactics but making reference to people have honest emotional difficulties around the issue and yet in a way that validates those feelings (i.e. you’re not a bigot or simply some sheeply coward whose been bullied into voting yes by fear) while still calling beyond that feeling. Allow the feeling to arise but then hone in on the civil rights question to end it.
Still the two ads are good because they bring in families (Perlman) and religious leaders who are not opposed to gay marriage.
