Uncle Jay Explains: Oct. 26, 2009

Swine flu?  That’s NOTHING compared to America’s yearly plague of political ads!   They infect every TV, radio, billboard, mailbox, lawn and trick-or-treat bag.  There’s no vaccine.   But at least Uncle Jay can explain them!

    There’s no doubt that politicians are out of touch and even in their campaign promises they never even mention the critical issue of our day; there’s still no sustainable source of year round egg nog.

    I liked the break in format. This one was absolutely “classic” and oh soooo true. And indeed, a lot of people don’t vote, just look at the numbers. Think how crowded it might be if the ads were really effective! Thanks again Uncle Jay!

  4. Douglas Says:

    Ah yes. I remember the days when I owned a television. The days when it was easy to understand the issues, because watching the commercials gave me insight into the nature of the decisions I was about to create. It’s so sad that I had to throw my television out the window to crash in a pile of toxic rubble on the street. Now I have to actually read the voters pamphlet and make an effort to understand the issues. I have to understand the background and the biases of the people involved. I sure miss my television, yessir.

    U Jay, ROCKs!

  6. Terry Says:

    Good thing we have the internet were we can fact check political ads. Is that bad news for politicians?

  7. Winder James Says:

    Great show / Terrible show UJ! The voice of Gary was perfect / confusing and I rank this episode as a classic/ forgettable one. Good job / Really, good job, James

    Can any of us read the goobledy gook that the state/city/non-partisan groups send us? I have a masters’ degree and find them difficult to digest on a regular basis. I am still glad to read the actual ballot and the actual issue but find the noise on TV annoying.

    PS My husband and son want the egg nog issue solved! Did you notice the pumpkin spice that came out this month for fall. It is a good sign……

  11. Sara Pitbull Says:

    Voters don’t have to read the bills and propositions any more than the politicians do. It’s much funner to close your eyes and put a check mark next to which ever side of the ballot your finger lands.

  12. Dr. Sue Says:

    This is the most fair and balanced political ad explanation I’ve ever seen! Thanks.

  13. dsp Says:

    Great one, Jay! One of your best in recent times. Very clever, very creative!

  14. Ol James Says:

    You may not be able to see…but…I’m giving you a STANDING OVATION!!!…maybe I’m not alone in this.

  15. Kathy Says:

    very funny: which radio station will play xmas music first.
    very funny being commentator of the political ads.
    very funny: nobody goes there becuz the place is so crowded.
    THX Uncle Jay. YOU are Great news.

  16. Donna Says:

    Actually, boys and girls, there is a word this week, but Uncle Jay isn’t allowed to say it in the presence of impressionable children. It starts with B, ends in T, and is a very naughty word, but one that most accurately describes political ads. LOL

  17. Kathy Says:

    BTW GREAT play on words: Too Pig to Fail. Love it.

  18. Jason Says:

    U rok!! I watch u every wednesday at school during current events… go Miss.A!

  19. nelserik Says:

    Good grief this is so true of the party I don’t vote for. My party is as pure as the driven snow :)

  20. Someguy Says:

    Funny yes … but did he explain much? I’m not sure. It was a great parody, but didn’t help with the obvious question of: how do we actually weed through all the muck to find the best candidate on the issues we support? Even their websites are biases and politicized. Maybe we should just all vote for Mickey Mouse again.

  21. Mikey Says:

    You got a new fan! Someone on linked you. Oh don’t worry, it wasn’t the blog owner or the managing editor. They are way to busy to notice anyone but themselves and major league sports stars.

    Thank you will watch every week!
