Watch a Democrat Come Out of the Closet


No, not that closet. The Democratic closet. Utah man Ryan Combe is running in the Democratic primary for a chance to represent the state’s first congressional district, a seat which Republican and tea party caucus member Rob Bishop has occupied since 2003. Utah’s delegation is almost entirely Republican and it will be a tough row to hoe for either Combe or his challenger. “Why aren’t you a Democrat?” Combe asks at the end of the video, in which a young man delivers the heartbreaking news to his parents. “It might not be as bad as you think.” You’ve got to respect a guy running on a “why the hell not?” platform.
