Saturday morning, I was fixing myself some breakfast and had the weekend version of The Today show on in the background. It was the time of the show where they have a few commercials, throw to the local affiliate for local news, and then more commercials.
During this particular break, there were two Mitt Romney ads, one Barack Obama ad, and one ad for and one ad against Question 7 that will appear on the Maryland ballot. For those outside of the Maryland area, Question 7 is a ballot initiative to ad one more casino and table games to existing casinos. Currently, Maryland casinos only have slot machines. Oh, and I almost forgot, there was one commercial from independent Senate candidate Rob Sobhani.

In the past few weeks, these sorts of things had been heating up, but not quite up to the level of this past weekend. I suspect that things are only going to get crazier over the next seven weeks. I hope that I can manage to keep from throwing the phone through the television from the expected barrage of robocalls and television ads. Though, now that I think about it, I could use a new television in the living room.
