"When did you choose to be straight?" A simple question, really, but the biggest problem facing left-wingers is a lack of strong and universally acceptable messaging. The Republicans are great at shutting people down with half-truths and idiotic phrases like "You're either with us or with the terrorists" that are difficult to argue with.

On gay marriage, we're right and they're wrong… so why haven't we seen a video like this before? It works.

Of course, you can just picture a right-winger saying, "I didn't choose to be straight, God chose me to be straight." The retort: "Did God choose gay people to be gay?" "No, they chose themselves. God wants them to be straight, etc. etc." What do you think would happen?
