I was having a fun conversation yesterday with a good friend of mine about all of the political craziness on T.V. right now. She happens to live in New Hampshire and her airways are inundated with ads from tons of candidates all across the region.
I guess that’s just how it is up there in New England. Here in Oklahoma, we get to keep our ads all to ourselves. And, this next one is definitely a keeper.
Hi, my name is the Senator’s Wife and I am an adaholic. Is that even a word?
I do have a problem ……. and it involves political advertising. I’m obsessed with it.
And, this is my favorite time of year because every day….all day….everytime you have the television on, nine times out of ten there is a political ad running for someone or something. Ads for candidates, ads against candidates, ads for state questions, against state questions etc……here are some of my favorites to date…..but, only because I find them fun.
The first one actually is a very good ad…….. so fun might not be the right word. And, when I say ‘good’, I mean effective. Whether you agree with the message or not, you will have to admit it is a well produced piece.
Here ya go:
This next one is a little…..odd. Not sure if they are trying to make the candidate appear younger? Hipper? Or, show that he can text? Personally, I don’t think it has any real value – but it made me wonder why anyone would spend the money to put this on T.V. Anyone? Anyone?
Check it out:
This one is just plain funny….. for obvious reasons. It is also effective…..I think? Comes from an Oklahoma candidate too…..made me laugh. Just because.
What do we say…um, only in Oklahoma? You’ll see what I mean….Enjoy:
Ok, so what is your favorite political ad of the season? Send me the link and I will be your friend forever!
The Senator and I are celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary today, except we are not really celebrating…..together. I mean, I happen to be in the Land of Lincoln at a board meeting….and he is not….in the Land of Lincoln. Although, I am sure he wishes he could be. I mean, the Presidential Library and Museum were incredible and right in line with his area of interests.
I’m sure I forgot to mention that one of his goals in life is to rent a “recreational vehicle” and drive to all of the Presidential Libraries….
Doesn’t that sound like fun?
I beat him to this one however, and without the RV.
I will say this about Springfield, the Capitol has a really cool dome.
But, that is not what I want to think about on our 16th Wedding Anniversary.
I want to cherish all of the special memories we have had and celebrate the fun ones ahead….which may or may not include a cross country trek in a large, over-sized vehicle.
Big hugs and kisses to my Senator! See you soon!
