    I love them. It's amazing to see how many dopey citizens they get to participate in the ads.

    My favorite one currently in NH is an ad that's supposed to be denigrating Scott Brown. It contains about a half dozen women complaining that Scott Brown wants to take away their right to choose. What's noteworthy about it is that these women are not only incredibly unattractive (one even sports at least 3 chins), they are all upwards of 50 years old. I wonder how many unattractive 50 year old women are really worried about their right to get an abortion considering most of them are menopausal.

    Remember, this is not exactly a scientific poll, and the responders are from a somewhat select group of voters.

    Don't stop me from saying that 80% of those people are full of ****, alright?

    They're so honest, truthful and good hearted in nature....lol

    The Florida race for governor has been one of the nastiest, most bitter, over done battles I've seen.

    Not a good time to live. We live in an era where advertising is pushed, en masse, into every facet of our lives.

    I saw the first Al Franken tour go through. That was great as an outsider, as I said before. These ads from another state I couldn't do anything about. Each trading blows. Then eventually I am watching my TV and I see like 2 ads. This thing had been browbeaten into me by this point. Up comes the Franken ad and Al had produced a political parody ad. "Al Franken hates puppies" and "Al Franken kills puppies!"

    By the end of it, I thought about committing some serious voter fraud and voting for Franken for giving me tears of joy after the hours of horrendous Minnesota issues. I developed a deep hated for Minnesota and the people that live there during that campaign, but Al gave me a glimmer of hope.

    You shouldn't hate the folks in Minnesota for the negative ads. I think every state has them. We've been getting them ad nauseum over a state senate race. If you just watched the ads, you'd think it was a race between Charlie Manson and Beelzebub.
