Tired of Political Ads Yet?

We still have several more days before the election. Are you tired of political ads yet? Around where I live, not a single one has discussed issues, they have all attacked the character of their opponents. It seems worst this year than in past years.

  • All of them are premature, petty, and low. They only attack one another, which to me only turns me off to the idea of voting for them. I don't want to know that the local polotician can be as childish as a six year old. Infact, I want to know they're better then that. I need to know their policies, their plans, their courses of action, etc. Not how they think of the next runner up. It's ridiculous how callus and brash these political ads have become. Seriously, I don't have any desire to vote at all knowing that I'm voting for a bunch of bickering children.

  • Tired of it? Nope. I love it. The dirtier, the better. It gets me excited for election day.

  • Funny thing is, there aren't that many around here. Governor's race yes but not that many. Jim DeMint is running against a guy who's under indictment and doesn't even have Democratic support so no need to waste his money there and Linsay Graham (can you say Rino?) is uncontested (which ticks me off. I'd vote him out in a heartbeat)
