If you spent this weekend within civilization, there's probably a good chance you were exposed to an advertisement for U.S. Senate candidates Richard Carmona and Jeff Flake.
Maybe you opened your mailbox, or maybe you got a robo-call from Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan -- for Romney's "good friend," Flake -- or maybe you turned on your television set for more than five minutes.
Especially if you watched some American football on TV yesterday -- if you're like us, you were about ready to tell Cristina Beato, "Yeah, we've heard this story 100 times, lady."
If you somehow managed to go the whole weekend without hearing Flake/Carmona is awesome/a crazy person, that's probably a minor miracle.
Either way, how many ads for the candidates would you estimate you saw over the weekend?
