Sick of election ads?

...Then this might be funny.

I put it on my FB, too.  My boss emailed it to me this morning.  *we're so close*

    I'm tired of them calling me. I'm on the Do Not Call list, damnit. I don't care who your campaign person is, but I can guarantee that by calling me I will not vote for them.

    And I don't like seeing people trashed left and right on TV. I've met one of the candidates here and he's a really nice guy, but man are people tearing him apart in their ads.

    In ND our campaigns don't get too nasty but our congressional race is nauseating.  A lot of people are pissed at the incumbent, but the challenger is a serious douche.

    I really don't want the challenger to win.

    But I meet all the candidates so, I feel like I get an unfair advantage, lol.

    We had our municipal elections on Monday.  They don't really do TV ads here for those, but my goodness I'm sick of all the signs on lawns/green spaces.

    This is another thing that is so bothersome. How come you cant just run a clean campaign? It gets ridiculous what they dig up, and most of it is not true. I just watched a story on the news where they broke down what the ad's said and what was "really" true.

    Not a fan.  We also have this annoying ad going in MD right now about the location of a casino that will be voted on at the polls.  It's crazy how the pro-casino ad and the anti-casino ad say completely opposite things, so one of them has to be lying.  It's pretty ridiculous.

    I think Nevada is getting the worst of the negative political ads between Sharaon Angle and Harry Reid.  I've seen one positive ad from Harry Reid, but the rest have been negative, negative, negative.  I've seen as many as 4 in a row.  I can't wait till next week and all these ads will be done! Then I'll just have to hear about the recount.

    I can't see that video at work, but have any of you seen the ad for Winnipeg that says "Candidate kicks children in the face"? It shows him in a soccer game kicking a kid.  It's hilarious

    Wow, what scum to go that far to trash someone else. I'm more likely to vote for people who run a clean campaign than those who feel the need to drag others' names through the mud. I don't respect the candidates who slander others, so I sure as hell won't vote for them.

    I get more junk mail from the Republicans right now than I do from wedding shiit or credit card companies.  And they all have pictures of Nancy Pelosi making a frightening face on them.

    Nancy Pelosi may be speaker but she's nowhere near North Dakota.  I hate how they envoke the name of Nancy Pelosi to scare people into voting.  Who are you campaigning against?  DAMN.

    IN GA, the answer is Dylan Glenn for everything. If he's running - but I don't think he is.


    I'm sick of the MAIL. OMG. 3/4 of our mail goes in the trash before I walk in the house.

    [QUOTE]Darn I cant get youtube at work. But OMFG! I am about to scream every morning it's one right after the other. <strong>DH was talking that it should be hooked in that if you vote early (like he did,he'll be out of state), your TV automatically stops playing ads.
