All I can do is lie down
It has a thing hanging off the end
When i get the urge to show off, a tiny voice inside my head says "resist the urge". So i shut my mouth and stand still.

Not political

all the political commercials that I have seen this evening on TV are silent. Like someone pushed a mute button. Whats up with that? I don't mind but it is weird.
Is it happening everywhere?

Did they get your attention? If so, mission accomplished.

Maybe the FCC passed a new law?

I wish they would all be muted here Maybe someone pushing the buttons at the tv station is as sick of hearing the political stuff as I am.

I assume that they are still playing locally, although I try to watch more movies (and fast forward through commercials) during this month.

I have noticed that my "No Solicitors" sign on the front door appears to be keeping away the canvassers as well - an added plus!

All runners are equal. Some however, are apparently more equal than others.

While I'm sure the TV folks are as sick of it as everyone else, political spots mean $$$$$$!

OP, I'm guessing the silence act is to get your attention. Apparently it worked.

well, curiosity yes, attention I don't think so, and it was very ineffective as far as commercials go in any case. I don't even know what candidate the 3 or 4 commercials were for.... except for one which i get a kick out of and it needs sound.
But so many political ads show an opposing candidate talking but include their own agenda in comments.
It was just the oddest thing. I'll put the TV on later and see if it happens again.

Be jealous, very jealous. My state's vote is a forgone conclusion and there is no political advertising at all. I don't think that I have seen even one ad for either of the candidates.

I've seen enough from both sides to SCREAM and than you have local/State ones on top of that. That doesn't include all the times they have both been to my state making my life crazy with road closures etc.
