The midterm elections are approaching fast.  Now is the time that politicians take to the televisions of Americans to tell everyone whom to vote for.  Do these commercials really help though?

What's you're favorite part of Fall?

In these political ads, candidates smear their opponents with unsupported facts and make promises they cannot keep.  It is doubtful that anyone takes these advertisements seriously.

Even if they were to be taken seriously, when it is so close to the election, people probably know whom they are voting for already.  Therefore, these ads just take up precious commercial airtime when Americans could be watching KIDZ BOP commercials and listen to skinny models tell them how fat they are instead.

Dear politicians, instead of subjecting Americans to petty name-calling, unsupported facts, and your  god complex, please try to fix the economy you destroyed in the first place.  Thanks.
