The commercials aired during the Olympics didn't draw a lot of support from the NBC viewing audience -- too frequent, too political, and, as former "Bachelorette" Trista Sutter complained online, too scary for her kids. But one member of Congress found them touching.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., took to Twitter Sunday to describe the emotional toll the ads have taken on her. "I swear those commercials about moms on the Olympics have made me tear up every time I see them," she tweeted. Us too, senator.
