"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
I never see any, I ignore all advertising. I get really pissed off at people who call me though, in fact, I just cancelled my landline because the only people who call me on it want to sell me something or want to ask for money. I'd rather not have one because of it. I've taken to telling every single person who calls that because of them, they've just cost their candidate my vote.
Political ads amuse me, usually.
Also, I rarely see them because I don't watch TV. Sometimes youtube has em.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
Its often fun to call them out on the lies and gross distortion of facts, the often exceed the lies and gross distortion of facts of your average DP post. Otherwise, they are just annoying.
Every now and then, however, you get a clever or, at least, original one. Cory Gardner ran this ad taking a shot the all the Udall's that are or have been office in a parody of the old TV series Dynasty, a 1980's ABC prime-time soap that was a knock off of Dallas, set in Denver. It was cute, but of course, the reference was lost on anyone under 45.

Oh, yes, in the end, its a negative ad full of the lies and gross distortion of facts of which we have all become too accustom.

They can be funny, though.
One local Dem congressman is being castigated by his Rep opponent for..."..voting with Pelosi 87% of the time..."
Jeez a pol who only toes the party line 87% of the time would be called a RINO in the GOP.
That 87% makes the guy sound like an independent.
No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
I don't like any kind of ad.
