Would someone puhlleeeeeeeez stop the scratchy phlegmy crusty old guy and squeaky high pitched bubbly squeaky ditzy young female voiceovers on ALMOST HALF OF THE RADIO and TV Commercials?????

Is the same thing really being taught over and over and over and over in business school marketing classes?

Come on.  Stop. Please.

Iowa & New Hampshire

How Many New Hampshires Can You Get For An Iowa?

Whoa!!! Hold your horses.

You gotta be kidding.

According to Wikipedia, the Iowa fixation got started in 1972 by the New York Times.

And then, there’s New Hampshire which wants to be the first, must be the first and will stop at nothing to be the first to have a primary.

Is this what happens when TV combines speed dating and Teen Mom Reality shows? ? (i.e. we just met, shouldn’t we wait a little before we have a president?)

Where’s a Mayan calendar when you need one?

How about if everybody starts their primaries AT THE SAME TIME (for example, 2am when the clocks spring forward)?

They can do the whole thing on blogs for free.  The political parties would send refunds.   It could be real!

I understand the importance of entertainment and having a hobby, but, how about some qualifiers in the broadcast like “This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System…This is only a test..”

Remember Orson Welles & his broadcast of War of the Worlds?  A lot of people thought it was real.

With the TV cameras in New Hampshire now, is Iowa old news already?

Is Iowa  a spot inside an ancient temple that only gets illuminated once every so many years when the planet lines up with the sun and the light shines through the little hole in the ceiling whose purpose puzzled everyone for years?

Iowa’s first, then New Hampshire.  Who is 4th and 5th?

What number is Wyoming?

Do Iowans like all the attention or do you think they find it insincere?

I think it is insincere.  I’d be the first on to say so if I lived in New Hampshire.
