Had It With Election Ads?

I'm heading to Las Vegas this week, where more election commercials have been televised than anywhere else in the country. Sin City has been bombarded with an estimated 73,000 political ads as of mid-October, according to the New York Times.

What happens in campaigns, stays in Vegas.

Vegas isn't alone. Just ask residents of other swing states like Ohio, Florida, Virginia. Between the mailers, the robocalls, the TV and radio commercials, it's enough to make a grown man cry. (Read More: Obama Is Even in TV Ad Race Despite PACs.)

Or a little girl.

In a video posted on YouTube, four-year-old Abigael Evans can't take it anymore. Her mother, Elizabeth, posted a video of the little girl having something of a meltdown "after hearing one too many mentions of the election." When asked what's wrong, Abigael replied, "I'm tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney."

I'm tired, too.

"It'll be over soon, Abby," her mother told her soothingly.

Yes, Abby, soon. But not soon enough.
