Ads: CA Prop. 2, CA Prop. 8 & John McCain

Have you noticed how the anti Prop 2 (animal standards prop) ads, as well as JohnMcCain’s ads, have strong male voices, peremptorily telling you what to do and how to vote?

And the pro Prop. 2 ads, anti Prop. 8 ads (anti-gay marriage prop) and Obama’s ads are generally reasonable people telling you what they’re going to do?

I just figured it out — they are appealing to 2 different groups of people! The reactionary forces are appealing to people who want and/or need to be told what to do, while the progressive forces are appealing to people who choose to think for themselves.

Whatever you choose, go vote!
