    Do you like political television ads?

    Do you like political television ads?

    So many people claim to hate them, and I believe they are sincere in that. I might be weird, but yes, I do like them. I can't explain why. Positive, neutral, negative... doesn't matter. I get a kick out of them. I'm usually kind of sad when the election is over and they go away.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The only times I don't like political ads is when the local station carries ads for candidates I cannot vote for. There's nothing worse than having nearly every commercial break followed by 2 ads of opposing candidates from another state.

    Just two? Well aren't you lucky lol.

    Try five, the entire commercial break, for candidates outside my district, and then two more at the start of the next one just to be on the safe side.

    Although it was weirdly refreshing to watch a Republican go after his primary opponent over him being a millionaire.

    Do you live near a state line, by chance?

    Yep, and you guessed why. For a long time, I did. The local paper (regardless if it was an election season or not) was practically "Other State Daily" and political season was "Vote for Other State's Candidate." :P

    Re: Do you like political television ads?

    I live in a congressional district that doesnt have a local tv channel in it so I have never seen an ad for or against my congressman. However I do see a bunch of them and they are all the same, the candidate claims their opponent has done something non-conservative and you shouldnt vote for them. Its impossible to tell what party anyone is from the ads because even the democrats are trying to make the conservatives look like liberals.

    I prefer to get my political information from sources other than 30 second advertisements.

    I don't watch them.

    These ads are only effective for adolescents/staggeringly naive and/or morons, imo.
