Internet Ads Compare Obama to McCain

A few months ago, it was Hillary vs. Obama, and a couple of times you'd see someone else like Huckabee or Edwards. What I'm referring to are the square blocks of ads that show Presidential candidates' faces and then ask a question. "Who will win? Click here!" A decent marketing tactic.

Anyway, the most recent one I've seen shows Obama on the left, smiling toward the right, showing his teeth, and McCain on the right, smiling toward the left, no teeth.

Obama looks friendly, but the shape of his face seems almost...evil. Sure, this has nothing to do with anything. But I think his ears and chin seem a tad longer than ideal.

Take a look:

Myanmar Cyclone Kills 22,000 - Truth?

I saw the title of an article on Yahoo talking about how a storm killed 22,000 people in Myanmar. I didn't read the article. But I did have a thought.

What if someone nuked a city? And the cyclone story is a cover-up?

The reason my mind went into conspiracy-land was because there was an episode of Smallville on recently showcasing government lies. Clark Kent was experiencing an earth in which he'd never existed, where Lex had become President.

Lex Luthor told America that an enemy was launching nukes at us, so we had to retaliate. But no such enemy action had occurred. It was a sham, a lie in order to justify a preemptive strike by the U.S. against the enemy.

And with other stories like "Wag the Dog," it makes me wonder how much of "the truth" in the news we take for granted.

Honestly though, I figure the cyclone in Myanmar really did occur. I'd rather believe in the news than not. For all I know one of you reading this had firsthand experience with the horrific storm. I don't mean to offend.
