Confession To Make from Secret


I LOVE attack ads. Don't care who produces them; don't care who the victim is. I love them all. They are hilarious-- so much better than ordinary commercials. Of course I don't really believe any of them. I look forward to the attack ads every November.

Now we know why politics is so expensive: candidates have to hire expensive ad people to produce this crap. I NEVER watch or listen to campaign ads, as their veracity, taste, etc., is disgustingly low. They never convince me--the facts do.

Sadly, a growing number of Americans cannot handle facts or research the facts for themselves, and have chosen to think magically.
