Political ads are almost non-existent in Utah (I'm not complaining). We
get very little negative ads, or any ads, compared to other states.
Eyres: "Of course doctors would say that if a healthy person insists on
using an energy supplement, then a lo-cal one would be better than a
high-calorie one."It's a pedantic tangent to the fine point
of the piece, but is anyone else bothered by oxymoronic "low calorie energy
supplement" being marketed? "Low calorie" is "low energy"
by definition. If you want energy, eat some sugar or some other high calorie
food. What they are really selling is a product that provides a feeling of
mental alertness, not energy. Can we have some scientific literacy, folks?
Unfortunately negative ads work. That's why easily 85% of campaign ads
attack their opponent rather than articulate a vision of the future. When we
stop falling it, they'll have to stop.
Eyres, thanks for giving voice to my frustrations!Advertising today is
dishonest on so many levels, and often insulting as well.PLESAE Mitt, go
positive and stay there.
