Political Ads

No real time to post any lengthy feelings on the subject, but I just have to say how much I loathe political ads.

Does anyone actually make voting decisions based on these childish, insincere and usually misleading ads? I hope not.

I suppose it's a symptom of a greater disease. As long as they can gripe about the particular verbiage of one stupid statement, or ruminate over how many cars someone has, then they can avoid talking about anything of value.

Oh wait, that's pretty much the state of politics in the country as a whole. Everyone is so busy watching for a "gotcha" moment (so they can get on tv and rant about the injustice/prejudice/whatever of the person unfortunate enough to stick their foot in their mouth) that nobody bothers to try and solve the actual problems.

The country's problems are just another platform they use to get in front of the camera.
