I wasn't going to vote for him anyway, but going out to my mailbox every other day and finding gigantic obama brochures, is getting on my nerves. it makes me dislike him more. I didn't think that was possible. how come environmental extremists are supporting a candidate that is single handedly bringing down this rain forests with his brochures? will this type of unwanted solicitation help him, or hurt him with undecided voters. I for one hate junk mail.

I've been getting them from both the Dems and the Reps in about equal volume, so I don't think it's really going to have an effect one way or the other- they're both spamming the world with their junk.

One of the joys of not living in a swing state is that I don't have to deal with anything (or anyone) except for the occasional television commercial.

I am signed up with the Obama campaign email, and get about 1 a day, or 1 every two days. Moveon.org doesn't have my email address though, thank god.

There was a funny Onion article about Obama getting mad at the spam emails from Moveon.org.

Well, I live in GA, which normally wouldn't be a swing state, but with the way this election is going, it could very well become one- it's getting to be a pretty pale shade of pink on the maps.....

yeah, I live in NC. I haven't gotten anything VIA snail mail from the republicans. however, I got a free pocket sized constitution from some foundation and something called newsmax spams the living crap out of my email.

The end always justifies the means to the unscrupulous and self-aggrandized.

Yup. I did not even see one commercial until I went to FL last month, and every other commercial was a McCain or Obama ad. Must get annoying.

Both candidates' huge mailers are annoying and every one Ive received, from both sides, is a terrible ad.

1) They dont get to the point right away; some give the impression of being ads for the other side, for long, long seconds.
2) The points they do finally get around to making are just...piddling and lame.
3) They're so expensive! That's the first thing I think when I unwedge them out of my mailbox. "Glad you've got the money to throw away on this useless thing."
