There isn't much more time in the elections in the US so many of us are hunkered down with the lights out hoping we can stay away from the activists and TV adverts. We don't answer the phone since it is usually a politico. They leave messages on the machine. The mailbox is full of political stuff. My sweetheart and I vote in every election so the politicos go after us hard. One observation though, my state (North Carolina) is one of the swing states and the TV ads are getting nasty. This is especially true of the Republican group ads against Obama and our senatorial race. Our senatorial election is between two women and it is getting really personal. Is it this bad in other states? How do you outside the US view this? Are your political ads as vile? I can't wait until this election is over. It has brought out the worst in us. -- Visit http://www.misshunt.com/ for fun and creative items including the famous Clean/Dirty dishwasher magnet, now available in velcro.
