Good riddance to negative ads

Ahhh. No more negative political ads on TV. Actually, its redundant to say negative and political in the same sentence. Back to the car, beer, and drugs ads. When one of my sons was 3, he saw a few ads where two NJ senators were taking tremendous shots at each other. After watching one, he turned to me and said, “That Forrester guy is the bad guy right? Because he never smiles.” (the picture of Forrester on his opponent’s ad was quite unattractive). That’s when I realized that political ads are meant to play to the 3 year old in us all. “There are good guys and bad guys and I’m the good guy.” Why do we let them get away with it? Does that V Chip thingy block unwanted political junk?
