Someone once said, "Two looked out through the self-same bars. One sees the mud, the other sees the stars." The Matheson campaign should be ashamed. TV political ads depicting Mia Love as an unattractive African-American are disgraceful. She is a lovely person, a good neighbor, a highly respected mayor of Saratoga Springs and undeserving of the characterization shown.

Jim Matheson says, "I approve of this ad." How sad — disparaging any fellow human being in this manner. But such seems to be politics as usual.
