Woot, like most site sites with advertising online, uses an ad service. Customers of the ad service can limit the type of ads (adult, political, competitors, etc) which I'm sure Woot has done. Reporting to the customer (Woot) so they can complain to the ad service is the correct way to do things.
Actually targeted advertising works wonders. I'm getting Staples and Sears ads on woot as I've been shopping their sites lately. If I start researching buying a TV, all of a sudden ... I'll get TV ads, electronic store ads, etc.
You've never noticed that you start researching a purchase and all of a sudden all your banner ads are, mysteriously, relevant to what you happen to be looking for.
I'm wondering if the original poster of the political ad comments has been reading political blogs, etc. ?
I am better than everybody else!

Politics? As far as I know red and blue ones are still available. The plum looks nice to me though. ;)
