Utah or Weimar.

A corny commercial from two Utah politicians urging civility and respect seems out of place in a society where differing ideologies want to fight.

The commercials are reminiscent of the “I’m a PC/ I’m a Mac” ads of the mid-oughts. Two younger men are standing in a greyish background. Both wear gray suits. One wears a red tie with an elephant on his lapel and the other wears a blue tie with a donkey button on his lapel.
