Here in Ohio EVERY TV and radio commercial is a political one, and the DNC/Media Fund/Moveon.org/ACT/Kerry campaign are pouring millions into Ohio. <br><br>Every last commercial break....the commercial bombardment is so out of control, I think people are just going to be glad it's over. <br><br>
we're a top 3 market for pro dubya ads (behind only miami and cleveland). we're top 10 for all political ads. i feel your pain. it sux.<br><br>you know what gets me? people argue that the electoral college helps ensure that the politicians pay attention to places beyond the huge population centers, but that really isn't what it means. the electoral college doesn't force politicians to do anything for the smaller population centers. the only thing that results from the electoral college is that the smaller markets get subjected to the campaign ads as well -- they pay us lip service every 4 years. get rid of the electoral college and allow me to see normal commercials again. <br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato

Well, that's what you get for living in a state the candidates actually pay attention to ;-) I'm not sure what's worse: being inundated with campaign rhetoric or being ignored completely. It would be nice if the campaigns paid attention to all of the electorate equally. That way maybe we could take up some of the slack for ya ;-)<br><br>Hang in there -- only a few more days ...<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
There is a switch on both your TV and your radio. It is the off switch. Turn them on for special occasions* only and go read a comic book instead. <br><br>*special occsion, tonight at 8:20PM. Because I am within WEEI radio I get to turn the TV on with no sound and crank Red Sox Radio Network to 10.<br><br>Fun Fact: Try watching a Viagra ad whith the sound off. It's porn, pure and simple.<br><br><br><br>luciferase is a four nineteener
I feel your pain, Bryan. PA is no better than OH for these damned ads, infuriatingly wrong on both sides because all you can get in the 30 seconds is a sound bite, and sound bites are by definition out of context and wrong wrong wrong. What a hell of a way to elect a president!<br><br>

In Indiana, Bush will clearly win. So, no political ads, save for the Governor's race (or national flights on FoxNews).<br><br><br>****************<br><br>[color:blue]VOTE</font color=blue>[color:red] for President George W. Bush on November 2, 2004</font color=red>
