There are only a handful of times in life when a man does not want to think -- during sex, during sports, and during terrorist attacks (President Bush only). You can imagine our dismay upon learning of a new political ad that will now be featured during the Superbowl. This comes just one year after another policital ad, sponsored by Christian group Focus on the Family, aired during the game and caused quite a stir.
Until recently networks had always had a "standards and practices" policy in place that would preclude them from airing political spots. CBS has said they have essentially revoked that policy. Unfortunately, this means that some of our favorite superbowl commercials may become politicized. Check out a few examples of the new ads for this year's superbowl.

Ad # 1: Volvo cx60

Description: glamourous shots of the Volvo SUV driving along desert roads until it reaches it's final destination: the mexican border where the driver kicks out all of the illegal immigrants he picked up along the way -- thank goodness for that extra legroom.

Tagline: Finally, a luxury car that does what your governent can't do.

Ad # 2: Bud Bowl XXV

Description: Budweiser and Bud Light are at it again. The two titans of beer face each other on the field to see who is the ultimate champion. But here's the twist: after all of these years together, they realize they no longer want to fight; they want to love. After declaring their feelings for each other, they forfeit the game and head to Massachusetts to get hitched.

Ad # 3: E*Trade

Description: the hilarious Etrade baby is back and talking to us about everyone's favorite subject: the stock market. Right in the middle of one of his hilarious expressions, a burglar breaks into the house and shoots him dead. If only his parents kept a gun in the house.
