Sure there are plenty of things to be annoyed about during the election season - exaggerating commercials, lawn signs, smart people who ask me my opinion about foreign diplomacy and I'm all like, "I want my diploma from America!"
But is anything worse than the tagline "I'm __________ and I support this message."
We get it - I just watched 30 seconds of a commercial about how McCain has 48 houses and looks like a monkey trying to crack a coconut when you hand him a computer - I didn't really think the Republican Party was going to foot the bill for it.
But the politicians aren't nearly as bad as the 1,000,000 commercials that use that tagline and think they are hysterical.
Hey, Local Car Dealership Guy - when something makes you want to jump in a swimming pool full of hot sauce and broken glass - you should NOT adopt it to try to sell something.
I'm not an expert (wait - I work at an ad agency - maybe I am an expert) but that just seems how advertising should work.
It reminds me of those commercials that have an alarm clock in them - because apparently the emotion they want associated with their product is blind rage.
While there are important things like taxes, foreign policy and health care - I think we should start keeping track of who has the most annoying commercials and take votes away from them.
-100 votes for every time I hear, "...and I support this message."
Obama is actually in the negative after this gem -
