It’s campaign season once again, and the ads are starting to come out. And a good number of them are concerned with bashing the candidate’s opponent. And I fast-forward through them any time I can, not to mention covering the TV screen with my remote.
I got really disgusted with the commercials during the primary season. And I don’t think it’s going to improve for the general election. I just wish the ads would tell:
- Who the candidate is.
- What’s s/he running for.
- What s/he stands for.
That’s it, don’t bash your opponent. And don’t get cute. Tell me as much as you can about yourself, and maybe I won’t fast-forward through your ad.
