I have been on the road and it has been fascinating to actually see and hear campaign ads. Living in a die-hard republican state, we never see campaign ads – republicans assume there’s no need to advertise there because they’ve got it sewn up and democrats assume there’s no need because the liklihood they could win is miniscule. So, we only see campaign ads on youtube and the news.
It’s a different story when you’re seeing ads from Missouri and Illinois. They’re out in full force. Although, I don’t think I’ve heard a McCain ad yet but I have heard some Obama ones. Surely McCain is advertising too, and I’ve just missed it.
This whole election based on advertising is somewhat like rocketing to space on the lowest bid. I’m not sure it’s such a good idea. But, I guess for the moment it’s what we’ve got.
