Death to Attack Ads

I know it is our duty to protect free political speech in this country. It is one of our most sacred rights and should never be limited. I don’t really want to take any legal action or move to ban political attack ads, but I hate them, and the tit-for-tat is in full swing and we haven’t even had conventions yet. 

McCain calls Obama the c-word (celebrity), so Obama calls him the b-word (bush). The ads run 12 times on actual TV, then in a constant loop on Youtube, in blogs, and in the back of my skull. 

I s’pose it’s just that I had higher hopes for these two candidates. McCain and Obama promised to carry out high minded campaigns based on issues. But the name calling never dies I suppose.
