Attack Advertisements

My wife has noticed that nobody votes for anybody. That's not what gets you out to vote. You vote to make sure that the other idiot doesn't get elected. So attack advertisements serve a valuable purpose: they are intended to get you to vote against the person mentioned in the ad.

Of course, a libertarian could foil that by making an ad that said "I agree with both of my opponents in this race. They're both scum-sucking bottom feeders. I'm not. Vote for me."
