Political Advertising

Posted Wednesday, October 8, 2008, at 9:01 AM

Why can't our political candidates present straight scoop with their political ads? You probably wouldn't like my answer depending on which side of the political fence you sit, so I'll just say that it's well documented that advertising is effective. The difference between political advertising and product advertising is that there are laws that restrict deceptive ads for products while political ads apparently allow unlimited deception to sway your opinion.

As I was wading around the internet this morning, I came across a couple TV ads that are a BIG departure from common political ads we're exposed to every day. So to beat the drum and jump on the bandwagon, turn on your sound and click here...

Republican Ad

And to learn just about everything you ever needed to know to make your decision...

Democratic Ad

Too bad the current crop of ads go in such a different direction!

The Good old days, may not have had all the modern conveniences we have today, but it is nice to not hear a single word about how bad the opponent is. Thanks for the memories remembered.

I fear that the next President of this country, may well end up the most hated person in the world, whichever one wins(?).
