Wow, I just saw an ad for Jim Petro, who is running for Ohio governor. I'm shocked. The ad starts with him talking about his faith, with pictures of a Bible, then goes on to say he's pro-life, and finishes by saying (or rather implying) that gay marriage is wrong. Wow.
First of all, I give him credit for having the balls to come out and say what he believes. I think that shows a lot of character. However, starting your campaign and creating its foundation on the idea that you want to push your ideologies regarding personal liberties is absolutely insane. State government is a mess, and this is your coming out party? No thanks.
Sigh. We are in dire need of someone better. I was hoping my congressman was going to run.
