Yesterday on the local news, I counted at least 15 political ads between 6:00 and 6:30. Warren, Brown, two different Tierneys (I think), Romney, Obama, SuperPacs pro and con all of them. Please make them stop.

The MUTE button has gotten me through a lot of adbreaks too.

One of the side benefits to this law school thing is that having no time to watch television saves me from political ads. One of the bad things is that it took me a while to realize that the subject heading for this thread wasn't some new Latin thing I had to figure out.

Interesting that we spend so much time and energy on parsing the campaigns and posting the on-line-only canpaign ads on the board and have such strong opinions on how the campaigns should or should not be run, and then bitch about the campaign ads.

I haven't had teevee programing in so long that when I see it now all I see is 5 minutes of show and 10 minutes of commercials that all talk so fast it makes my head spin. We don't even turn it on in hotels anymore. I think that a good thing because my brain isn't corrupted by ads, but it does make for socially awkward moments when people are talking about shows I've never seen, like Stanfield and all those Vampire shows. When I say I don't have teevee people look at me like I'm from Mars or sumptin. :oops:

I read the thread title and wondered what this "saturation" thing is, and was about to criticize it for not being a recognizable Latin word. Too. Also.

Now it's the robocalls (and some humans !) while I'm trying to nap. Romney, a machine for Elizabeth Warren (debate with Brown tonight), and the DNC looking for money to help out other Senate races. :yawn: I need my beauty sleep.

I'm saturated by ad's of all types not just political ones. I've just retired after working for an Ad Agency for 20 years so I know that I speak the truth when I say that advertising is the bane of out times. I apologise to everyone for having lived VERY well on the back of such poison.
