They are getting intense.
Experts have said Maryland has the nastiest add in the country. I agree. I don't know how to vote for and I find it harder to care, even after seeing the debates and listening to C-SPAN for a bit.
Take a look at this:
Democratic add By Lieutenant governor Anthony Brown.
Republican add by Larry Hogan.
There is a irony to all this, besides the irony in the adds. Its the results of elections in my proud democratic state of Maryland. We had a Republican Governor for two terms who was called Bob Er-something, who had nothing really noticeable to the regular Jo smoe, apart from the war(s), life went on. Then came the Mayor of Baltimore, now Governor of Maryland, running for senator of Maryland, and inevitably the presidency, Martin O'Malley for two terms. (I once was able to run out into a parade with him and shook his hand as mayor, this was after 9-11 as a child. Take that as you will.) For two terms with him things were ok, apart from the recession, life went on. I expect life to be 90% the same regardless of the winning candidate, its not politicians actually pass alot of working bills!
Still there is alot more to this election and many others than can be said. Or put into a single add.
