#ImARepublican Republicans are people too--people with terrible public policy ideas.


Wow. Republicans are so desperate and insecure that they feel the need to make an ad with the message that "Republicans are people, too." Yes, we all know Republicans are people. No one believes Republicans are monsters (well, there is Dick Cheney) or from another planet (okay, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul).

The point is that Republicans are people with bad ideas for public policy. They also seem to be people with a persecution complex if they believe they are being dehumanized by the people who simply disagree with their bad public policy ideas.

To make matters even worse, many of the "real" Republicans pictured in the ad are actually just stock photos used in other kinds of advertizing. And their hashtag #ImARepublican has been flooded with satirical posts.

Check out the sad little video of "real" Republicans here.
