This Texas Political Ad Features the Best Side-Eye I've Ever Seen

Gerald Daugherty, a Republican, is running for re-election as the Travis (TX) County Commissioner. If this unusually pleasant political ad is any indication, he is doing a very good job!

Thanks to his wife Charlyn Daugherty’s gentle eye rolls and excellent lip pursing, this funny, self-deprecating political ad gained national attention for reminding us, for about three seconds, that not everything is horrifying right now.

Those steaks Gerald grilled, on the other hand... has he ever heard of medium rare?
