Campaigning

I was watching a broadcast from Washington State and, naturally, 75% of the commercials were political in nature. The funniest thing, though, there were two ads which ran back-to-back, one for the Republican candidate and one for the Democratic candidate.

But what is so interesting about that, you ask?

Well, since they ran back-to-back, it was quickly evident that the two commercials had something in common.

Something more than their use of phrases involving the word "change".

That's right. They were both narrated by exactly the same woman. The voice was identical. One moment she's telling me about the lies told about so-and-so by the Republicans and then in the next, she is telling the audience to vote for them. Good times in advertising!
