    They both apparently support the same side of a very ugly political issue.

    Regardless of what you think of the issue at hand,
    It's strange to see Animated Prime as part of an image so charged with political angst.

    Here's the article, the pic was from the main page...
    High court: Anti-gay funeral protests OK - Politics - More politics - msnbc.com

    Yes, our beloved Transformers have completely permiated popular culture... not a surprise but always a weird feeling when they pop up somewhere.

    Optimus Prime is as close to a God as I believe in... not sure what he would think of those signs. ;)

    Kind of amazing that Prime made it into this ugly picture tied to a news headline...another sign of how deeply the TF phenomenon has permiated the culture.
