Even the Massively Irritating Fucillo Kia Ads Will Be a Welcome Relief.


Good lord, Tuesday can’t get here quick enough.
Whomever said an informed electorate was a good idea, sure didn’t live in the Age of The Innerwebs.

Forget about how sick I am of the television commercials. Forget about the day when I long to see a commercial for a personal injury lawyer or even a tee vee ad for a local car dealer.

Just so you know how much I abhor political advertising… see how long you can endure this 30 MINUTE ad. I would rather watch 30 MINUTES of this shit rather than 30 SECONDS of another campaign commercial.

So don’t watch tee vee, you are saying. And of course you are right. Or I could DVR tee vee and skip the political irritants. But that would require some planning.

Of course what is infuriating a ton of people is the crap that’s on Facebook. So far, I’ve only defriended one person. But I have hidden a lot of crap from my feed.

There’s gonna be a lot of pissed off people after Tuesday. And I suspect we have not seen the last political commercial because of all the “issue” ads that are running. Those PACs have a ton of bucks in reserve to defeat legislation.

Maybe the right to free speech isn’t such a hot idea after all.

Even the Massively Irritating Fucillo Kia Ads Will Be a Welcome Relief. — 2 Comments

  1. I should have joined NaBloPoMo to get me back into the habit of blogging again. However, I did manage to blog twice about the election in the past week, so it is an improvement! Living in New Jersey, we get almost NO presidential campaign ads; and I haven’t even seen many local ones. But, we got Hurricane Sandy, so we’re even. Seriously, we were lucky not to have had more damage (we’re in Northern NJ) – just trees/branches down and we didn’t even lose power in my neighborhood. But the shore is devastated as everyone knows… I can’t wait for this election to be over, and am hoping it goes the right way.

  2. I’ve never been invited to a Blogher before. But I sure know what you mean about all the stupid political ads. And emails. And crap on Facebook. I skipped Facebook today, but I have hidden a lot of posts and even adjusted how much crap I’m willing to receive from several friends after their political posts sent me over the edge.
