The comparative lack of political advertising on the airwaves here would be almost inconceivable to an American swing-state voter, who during presidential election season is bombarded by round-the-clock political advertising. Here in Germany, the air war isn’t really an air war: it’s more of a minor disagreement (and a polite one, of course).

And instead of myriad ads on different topics featuring different people, each party in Germany typically releases just one main minute-and-a-half ad for the entire election.

I know, I know, political advertising…free speech…but just imagine how nice this would be.

There is also the fact that television ads don’t work as well as they use to in politics. Unfortunately, it’s going to take the parties and the consultants another decade or so to figure that out.

Stephen Kruiser is a professional comedian and writer who has also been a conservative political activist for over two decades. A co-founder of the first Los Angeles Tea Party, Kruiser often speaks to grassroots groups around America and has had the great honor of traveling around the world entertaining U.S. troops.

Thanks, I really needed that picture in my head. Can you imagine the same commercials running over and over and over. How many commercials are run in an hour show? You can bet both parties will buy equal time and almost all the commercial time in each hour during prime time.
