clicking this will make you stupider

unfortunately, i still clicked.

actually, i've seen very few political ads this campaign season. the one ones i have seen has been on web sites discussing or rebutting some controversial ad that is allegedly airing somewhere. i keep wondering whether the campaigns are totally blowing their bloated budgets on tv advertising. i realize my tv watching habits are probably an outlier (i don't watch much tv and what i do watch are DVDs or streams of shows without commercials), but in this age of DVRs and video on demand, how many people are watching commercial tv? sports fans still probably see commercials, but only because they are the only audience who might value watching something as it airs as opposed to when it is most convenient for them.

if you're not into sports, the campaigns can't fling their propaganda at your brain like they used to.
