Lol! And on this page I see an advertisement for Town Hall with a half naked girl selling Victoria Secret. Seems rather hypocritical to me. I have also noted that this website will "trick" you into posting on Facebook . . . not cool at all. I am conservative, and libertarian, but despise the GOP hypocrisy when it comes to big spending, cronyism, and moralistic preaching on top of all things.

Seems hypocritical to you? Well, then, I have good news! You're wrong. You see, the VS ad is selling....VS products! Pretty straightforward! The girl describing using sexual innuendo about her "first time" was selling.... Barack Obama. Bait and switch, so to speak. So you see there is NO similarity, thus no hypocrisy. Rest easy.

DB07: Also, the woman in the VS ad is an ADULT. The individuals in the Obama ads are not. Unless anyone here seriously believes that a 19-year-old Hollywood bimbo is "adult" in anything but the strictest legal sense...?

Sigh. You don't understand the marketing here. While I don't know about Victoria's Secret, I think it is unlikely that Sherrod Brown, for instance, is going to get many donations from an ad in a TH article demolishing ObamaCare. But it only costs a fraction of a cent per "view".

If you want an agency to target your ads to a specific audience, you pay a lot more - for them to do the research into the demographics and the specific ad placements (instead of just buying a "block" and then rotating their clients through that "block").

On the other end, a web site (or radio/TV station) that wants only ads tailored to their viewership also has to pay a lot more, to assemble the demographics and sell the spaces.

Continued - I don't think there is a single "free" site that has the budget for that. (And it is apparently not all that economic - look at all of the newspapers with their "subscription" sites that are in the red, with a very few exceptions such as the WSJ.)

So if you do not like moral preaching, does that mean you prefer immoral preaching?

Two recent ads illustrate the great cultural divide in this nation and which parties and presidential candidates represent these competing worldviews.

In the handling of the economy and national security, President Obama has shown he's not capable of being the adult in the room. After four years of perpetual campaigning and cheerleading for his pet projects, he still isn't prepared to deal soberly with the consequences of his ideological indulgences.

His community organizing fantasy has been to remake America in his more socialistic image, and in the process, he's taken the nation dangerously close to financial ruin. Yet like...
