Happy No More Campaign Commercials Day! I live in a solid red state, so campaign advertising didn’t really affect me much, but I have friends in Florida and Ohio, who were just inundated with tv, radio, door-to-door and phone call ads warbling, “vote for meeeee!”
I actually got really cranky about the idea of how much it was costing to fly candidates all over the country in the past week. The physical cost to fly, and I was cranky about the environmental cost. I’m not even particularly Green and I felt my forehead wrinkling. But you know what? In 50 years, when candidates are beaming themselves into my living room at dinner time to beg me for my vote, I am going to miss the days when they had to get on a plane and fly.
At any rate, congratulations to President Obama, and congratulations to my guy, Gary Johnson, on running a good campaign.
