Preston on Politics: Vegas airwaves cluttered with political ads

Washington (CNN) - Pick up a television remote control in your Las Vegas, Nevada, hotel room today and you are guaranteed to find a program to teach you how to play craps, blackjack and roulette as well as be inundated with 30-second messages about who to vote for in the Nov. 2 election.

Wait, who to vote for? That's correct.

The television airwaves in Las Vegas are so saturated with political TV commercials that in the past week alone, these ads took up 180,600 seconds or 3,010 minutes, according to a new analysis of TV ads for CNN by Campaign Media Analysis Group.

    Nevada is also more cluttered with Harry Reid. Hopefully, he can move to DC where his heart is very soon.

    Oh well – VOTERS should recognize that the Unemployment Report for the next quarter for the state of NV should DEFINITELY go WAY down because of all the ADS and the people they have to HIRE to do them. Oh, wait a minute – for some reason REAL LOCAL RESIDENTS 'are not' used in the ADS – they rather HIRE actors from other states and even countries – THUG looking actors!!! Jeez, WAKE UP America!!!

    DEMOCRATS in NV – Please Close the so-call GAP – get FIRED UP and UNITE the BASE!!!I

    This is T'SAH from Virginia and I approve this message!!!

    The despicable ad by "Latinos for Reform" whose leader is Robert de Posada, is being pulled from Spanish language stations. This CONSERVATIVE group, is asking Latinos "not to vote on November 2nd"! Is there anything more anti-American than suppressing the VOTE?!
