Pay per phew

Jill Long Thompson's campaign sent out an e-mail -- I suspect I'm not the only one who got it -- promising that for a donation of $25, we could see this before anybody else did!

Democrat Jill Long Thompson will begin airing her first general election television ad in weeks on Tuesday in her campaign to oust Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Long Thompson says in the 30-second spot that Daniels "would have us believe Indiana is doing as well as can be expected," but she thinks the state could do much better.

Actually, I'd pay $50 to never have to see it anywhere. That suggests a whole new source of public funding for political campaigns. Keep your stupid, distorted ads off TV, candidates, and reap millions. Hmmm. Possible Catch 22 there, huh?
