Maybe the ads help keep the site up and running?

Yeah the ads are targeted, so if you’re seeing political ads, it’s because you surf political sites or search for political topics a lot. Me, all I see are ads for Woodcraft, Rockler and other woodworking stuff.

The Site Owner can do something about what ads get run. If they were obscene, they could do something about it, couldn’t they? Oh wait. Isn’t that the definition of political ads?
