More and more I read about people who are tired of the political ads and of the election in general. You hear the same thing in the course of every election. I'm not one of those people. I actually enjoy politics and political ads. Of course I don't take any of them at face value. I like to check them out at http://www.factcheck.org/ and see how much bending of the truth they do. I think though that you can tell a lot about a candidate from what they say about their opponent. Since my students are checking out my blog, I'm not going to list who I'm supporting until just before the election, but I have made my contribution, both by caucusing, and by giving funds (to a candidate not shown here).
