Where can I access transcripts of currently running political ads and/or political speeches?

I'd like to set up a semi-automated system to look at similarities between candidate talking points and political ads run by "non-affiliated" groups. But I need to get access to a set of transcripts of these political ads and speeches. I assume I can get the speeches from Lexis-Nexis, to which I have access. But does anyone know of a reasonable source for transcripts of political ads?

TNS Media Intelligence and National Journal's Ad Spotlight come the closest to offering what you're looking for. Neither is cheap, but you may have access to NJ through your academic institution, if you have one.

Neither is great, but they're free.
