Good evening, Netizens...

In the election year when television attack ads have become so much a part of the sand-blasted television real estate, when every minute or two we hear more ads from either Dynamic Dino Rossi or Pork Barrel Patty Murray, each attacking the other, it might seem like an outer-space battle of wills. After seeing today's David Horsey cartoon, some say he is looking at one side the political spectrum. The question that remains, however, is how many of the attack ads are coming from the Tea Party members?

Really, if you stop and think of it, most of the attack ads we are hearing and seeing on our televisions do not just originate from either Patty Murray, Dino Rossi or members of the Tea Party. Some say the Republican Party, who are leading in the polls for the most television advertising, are the source. Republicans, however, are quick to point a finger accusingly at Democrats.

You can open up a can of greasy, squirming worms if you begin to study negative political advertising, yet it is as American as apple pie this time of year. The only ones who win out in such contentious years as we have present are the television stations and advertising agencies.

Relax! It's only going to get worse as we enter the last four weeks before election.
