election:

Does your brain feel like it’s melting? Blame the campaign ads.
It’s the final week before the election, and rich people are shoving money into Senate campaigns left and right, The Washington Post reports. If you’re in one of the battleground states, we feel for you. All these annoying ads are probably testing your patience when all you want to do is watch “King of the Hill” reruns while eating Hot Pockets and otherwise being vegetative. And if you live in Montana, we doubly feel for you:

Perhaps no state has been so consumed by outside spending as Montana, where advertising is very cheap compared to large states with urban populations such as Ohio and Florida. There, according to the GOP tracking document, [Jon] Tester ($311,000) and [Denny] Rehberg ($515,000) will blanket the state’s seven small media markets with their closing ads in their competitive race.

Are you at the point where you just don’t care anymore? Think you’ll queue up Netflix and watch a “King of the Hill” marathon on election day rather than, y’know, voting? Just a thought of encouragement here: Don’t listen to the majority. Don’t feel like you’re at a crossroads. Read up on the issues, get a grip on foreign, domestic and economic policy issues, and vote for yourself. And don’t merely base your opinion on the fact that Denny Rehberg wears flannel in his official Congressional photo and looks like a distant relative of Ron Swanson. You can do better than that.
