●      Former First Lady Laura Bush starred alongside Dick Cheney in a pro-gay marriage ad but after pushback from the right she’s asking the ads creators to take her out of the ad.

●      Republican Congressman Joe Heck (R-NV) thinks former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is being used as a “prop in the debate over gun violence prevention.
