Okay, so I live here in Texas, and work the afternoon shift.  I see a lot of commercials between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.  I have not seen ONE Obama commercial.

However, I have seen several McCain commercials.  They're in between the commercials for life insurance ("It costs as much to bury a woman as it does a man!") the commercials for the Hoverround ("Where can you go in your Hoverround?") and the commercials for Liberty Medical's diabetes medication ("You may qualify for a free meter from Liberty Medical")

Needless to say, these commercials are targeted at old people.  Old people who SHOULD NOT be voting for McCain.  McCain supports Social Security privatization, and thinks our health care system is working just fine. But the commercial is all about scare tactics - Obama will raise your taxes, Obama doesn't support offshore drilling, etc.  We really need an advertising blitz here in Texas to address this important voting demographic.  

Old people vote too!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
