Youre telling me.. Yesterday I was blessed enough to live though 8 of em in one comercial break.. during the news right after they did a story about both of them..
Almost makes me want to move someplace I swore I would never move back to almost..
I live in Ohio, and it's been AWFUL. I mean - every. single. commercial. is one for some candidate or another. My mailbox, even though I'm on the Do Not Mail list, has been filled with crap. Thankfully my cell phone seems to have stayed off the list, as they haven't been calling. I wish we had a policy that the candidates can't run any ads. At all.

i seem to remember seeing something about 7-11 giving out coffee in red or blue cups (customers' choice) and having accurately predicted the last three elections by keeping count...
i have to say, though, that after watching wall-to-wall panicky coverage of sandy on all channels last monday night, when i woke up the next morning and turned on the tv and clicked around the dial and saw political ads on every channel, i figured everything must be OK and we must have made it thru the hurricane.
21 out of 22 here. And all pre-recorded. Ugh. I actually changed my answering machine greeting to state that due to the sheer volume of political calls, we're no longer answering the phone.
Robocalling should be completely outlawed, no exceptions for political calls, IMO
TOTALLY agree. All but about 1 of ours were recorded too. Basically, unless its my sisters numbers or a British number, I don't pick up the phone when I'm home. If we need to talk to them that badly they'll have either mine or my dads cell phone number. I think we only still have the home # for my mom who sadly has not yet joined the 21st century.
