Sure, there's titillation and implied sexuality in the spots, but if Martha wants to grouse about that, then she probably should start calling news conferences on the hour to lambaste, point-by-point, the similar approaches of roughly 78.2 percent of all television commercials and darned near every prime-time show on the Fox, WB and UPN networks. This is what she could have said: The spots are stupid.
