How do I act? Will I perchance see any political advertising? ;)

'Cause I can tell you, no one is spending their money in Texas...you wouldn't even know this is an election year if all you had to go by was advertising for the Presidential race.

1. No Ads In Kentucky Either
I came across a map the other day showing which markets the advertising dollars were being spent by both parties.

I'll try to find it again.

2. Every time you hear the words:
"I'm George Buxh, and I approved this message".....
the next image you will see is John Kerry....every time.

Kerry ads are always positive, however. A fact that I point out frequently to Buxh loyalists.

I live in Ohio...Battleground is an apt term.

4. NE Ohio is rocking and rolling with TV ads
being spewed around the clock.

The GOP is pounding the Northcoast with minute after minute of negative ads.

Kerry bumper stickers are starting to sprout. But it seems so are
the ones for Bush.

Interesting factoid.

The Bush bumper stickers are round with plain black W on a white background w/a samll American flag on the right (of course it would be right!).

No sign of Cheney on the bumpers here.

5. Ha !...I haven't seen those "W" ones yet
I gotta start carrying a red marker with me.
I can turn that into a "ban symbol" in one swipe of the pen
