Obama is on pace to spend more on TV in the final 25 days of this election than John McCain's entire $85 million matching-fund check. For those keeping score at home, Obama has aired more than 25,000 commercials in the past four days alone.Add to this the fact that the Obama campaign has purchased half hour blocks of network airtime for Wednesday, October 29 on CBS and NBC. The campaign is in negotiations with Fox, although the Wednesday date conflicts with a game 6 of the World Series. No word on ABC where the time should be relatively cheap.
McCain is in a shouting match against a man with a bull horn.
