Work is being stressful, but I'm eating lunch and happy for now...

Interesting ads from both sides: here's Obama's hitting McCain on the economy and (for the first time I can remember) Palin:

and here's McCain's hitting Obama for wanting to talk to Iran without preconditions, complete with scary staticy backgrounds and Arabic music. Grrr.

The Retail DNA test is Time's Invention of the Year.


Comment from liz_gregory:

I kinda agree with the first video... a little scary to think about. But I think many agree that he picked Palin for reasons other than the economy. (not expounding on those reasons purposefully)

The second video is a non-sequiter. How does knowing what Iran wants the US military to do, but wanting to talk ot them anyway, mean that Barack is making a choice to be pro-Iran? I'm missing the point here, if it's anything other than creating fear and potential hysteria.

Comment from omega697:

+1: total non-sequitur.

Comment from flamingophoenix:


The ad implies that Obama will cave to Iran's pressure to remove our military, but since Iran is the one wanting bilateral talks (right?) that really shouldn't be an issue.

Comment from omega697:

Here's my new ad:

Jason Jones-voice from the Daily Show: John McCain says he wants Kurt's vote.
*random quick shots of Kurt with flashes*
JJ: But Kurt says he would only vote for John McCain if John McCain kills a baby with his bare hands.
*random quick shots of babies crying*
JJ: Therefore, John McCain wants to kill babies with his bare hands.

John McCain. He wants to kill babies.
