It’s USA Election Day 2012 and Christmas Has Begun

I would like to know why, now that the avalanche and two horrendous years of political ads is over, that more that one advertiser has started running Christmas commercials, complete with Christmas songs. I worked in advertising and teach it and this is downright ridiculous. There is no joy of anticipation, of waiting. Just the opposite, we get tired and disconnect long before the event (holiday or election) before it is even close to arriving.
