Living in Oklahoma I haven't seen a single Presdiential ad on TV (I've downloaded several off the web) since Kerry sewed up the Democratic nomination. That's hardly surprising since anyone with half a brain cell knows Oklahoma is not in play.
Over the weekend though I was visiting family in Amarillo. While I was there I saw an ad from the Bush campaign and an anti-Bush ad from the DNC. Now I realize that that's not a lot, but then I didn't watch much TV there besides the first half of the Dallas game on Sunday. (And I slept through a lot of that.) I can't for the life of me figure out why any one would run even one Presidential ad in Texas. I mean it's not like Texas is in play either.
So what's going on here?
