I've been able to call Adwords and get them to approve campaigns within an hour, but it might depend on how much your spending.
1) MSN adcenter as been great for quality traffic (but same approval issues).
2) 7Search can work well in certain markets. They are pretty active about weeding out sites that deliver poor quality traffic. But of course a lower volume of traffic.
3) GoClick has still worked for me in some markets, despite the naysayers (it REALLY depends on your market for the 2nd tier engines).
4) SearchFeed has worked in some markets.
is being developed out by the same guys that developed out GoTo/Overture and sold to Yahoo. I haven't tested it yet, but it's a CPA model where you pay per ACTION not per click (same thing that Google's now experimenting with).
ExactSeek is also worth considering as a paid placement source.
A couple that I've NEVER seen anyone have luck with are:
Hope this helps.
