Cram it, Rudolph

In some perhaps-fortunate places, political ads may be drowning out holiday-themed ads for the next month or so:

According to Ad Age, the lead-up to this Election Day will be dominated by campaign spots — especially those of the Presidential variety — so some big retailers like Best Buy and Kmart likely won’t be making their holiday push until after the polls are closed.

Except, of course, in the 51 or 52 states where the results are already a foregone conclusion, where you may safely assume Presidential ad buys will be minimal. In this day and age, this just might be one of the most persuasive arguments for the Electoral College.

    Just as long as the Chia Pet doesn’t start advertising about how the Clapper hates the middle class.
