In this year's campaign, Senator Jean White and state House candidate Jeffrey Hare, both Republicans, were attacked via mailers featuring a gay couple kissing and slogans suggesting that the image represented their version of family values.

quote from the article:
“It fuels me as a photographer to know that these images will be cherished. That they will hang on walls, be passed around at gatherings, put in albums, and that someday maybe children and grandchildren will display these moments in their own homes.”
Alright... not to be cynical here, but what children and grandchildren is she talking about?
I... I did not know that...
Exactly how *MUCH* do they have to love each other??
Well, I checked and it looks like Jean White got destroyed in the Republican primary by a guy named Randy Baumgardenr, who then went on to get elected to the state senate. Jean White, from what I can gather, was a “moderate” and a homo hugger who “worked across the aisle”. No thanks.
Photographically speaking, the Photoshopped images are better than the original-—the distracting buildings in the background have been deleted.
Gee..I sure remember human anatomy class differently..was I absent one day?????
