Mike Gruss, columnist for my local rag, is fed up with the political commercials, and the conventions haven’t even happened yet. A snippet:
Those commercials were the building blocks of the American dream to get fat and stupid. But in the wrong hands, (dramatic music here) and during the wrong season, television commercials are miserable and force us to do things like read books or play Solitaire on our phones.
(Out of context black-and-white clip from cable news here.)
Candidates promise to make America better, but then they go on TV and make everything worse by playing their stupid ads over and over again. Is this the America you think we want?
