Obama Ads On The Air In Houston?

Houston television viewers have been getting a bit of a shock lately -- they've been seeing advertisements for Barack Obama.

As Joe Biden might say, that's like seeing TV ads back in the day for Eugene V. Debs.

Paul Burka of Texas Monthly has had reports of the ads playing in all the state's major markets. Marc Ambinder of The Atlantic says the ads are part of a national buy.

He writes: "Still ... you don't see national ad buys from presidential candidates everyday. Obama must be raising a _lot_ of money if he's advertising before SNL on NBC...."

Obama ads can sometimes be seen on cable channels, of course, but showing up on regular network TV? In Texas? In October?

Dude's got money to burn.
