Former first lady Laura Bush asks to be removed from newly launched pro-gay marriage ad campaign

Former first lady Laura Bush is asking a pro-gay marriage group to remove her from a national television, newspaper and online advertising campaign that launched this week.

The Respect for Marriage Coalition, co-chaired by the Human Rights Campaign, kicked off a $1 million media campaign Wednesday with ads that use news clips of Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, President Barack Obama and others talking about gay marriage.

The advertising blitz, first reported by Politico, features a clip of Bush talking to Larry King on CNN in 2010 and saying, “When couples are committed to each other and love each other then they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has.”

But Bush spokeswoman Anne MacDonald said in a statement Wednesday that the former first lady “did not approve of her inclusion in this advertisement nor is she associated with the group that made the ad in any way.”

1. I've always believed

that if you don't like one half of a long term couple, you'll eventually find you don't like the other half either.

4. Yep,

while he can be hilariously funny, you just know he is not a real Democrat...but then neither was Clinton. Hmmm, perhaps I need to rethink my position on Hillary.

6. Tough Noogies Laura - I Hope They Keep Her in the Ad.

Obviously the clip is "Fair Use" so Laura's people didn't file a suit.

You said it Laura, you own it.
