DaShiv: Were we discussing censorship, I'd agree with that distinction between commercial and political speech. When it comes to discussing intrusiveness/disruptiveness, audience annoyance, lack of efficacy in choosing of space and occasion, and degrees of self-serving though, I don't see the need to draw any distinctions between commercial and political speech as opposed to simply speech.
