I almost cried, too. Nice post.
Salon has a good read today on Karl Rove’s comment that he was “offended” by this ad because he saw it as the automakers’ repayment to the Obama administration for the auto bailout. It points out that Eastwood voted for McCain, and that the Republicans might have a problem with voters this year due to their relentlessly negative take on the state of our union. Voters do tire of constant doom and gloom, and it certainly isn’t making breaking up partisan gridlock any easier, or encouraging sane policies going forward.
