Republicans Against 8 Invoke Reagan In New Ad

Conservatives absolutely adore the late Ronald Reagan, which explains why Republicans Against 8 invoke the Gipper in their new ad against Proposition 8, a ballot measure looking to overturn California’s gay marriage.

The minute-long spot first highlights how Reagan, while Governor of California, opposed to the Briggs Initiative – a measure that would have banned gays from teaching in the Golden State’s public schools. That pro-gay stance, says the narrator, can be directly compared to current California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s pledge to vote against Proposition 8.

If Reagan can’t woo the right, no one can!
