    I'm sure it's just coincidence and an example of the well-known carelessness of Republican ad teams but it's still interesting ....

    Take a look at the crowd above Obama, who during this original campaign stop were holding individual letters to spell out "CHANGE".

    But the way the ad runs, there's a dark shadow through most of the "C", and the "E" at the end of the word.

    Take out those two letters, and you have a new word right above Barack Obama's head.

    Patters loves to play in the dirt. What a f*cking joke.

    I saw the cross in the Huckabee ad, but this one is a serious reach at best.

    I don't get it, then again, I didn't get the upside down flag either.

    interesting that the most passionate denier is indeed the one with the most vast array of anti-minority themes in his post history here...

    anyhow, readers of the story responded to the poll this way:

    42% believe it was intentional
    26% believe it was an accident...

    product ads are checked thoroughly, frame by frame... especially those with crowds in the background... i don't see why political ads would be any different... considering how dramatically the left corner is shaded compared to the right, in order to shade the C, i would say it's worth an investigation.... considering his is the party of seperation and intolerance, i would say it's hardly surprising if true...

    This would be true if you were actually unable to see the "C". You're really grasping at straws here.

    No it's the fault of those liberal's in the crowd that just can't spell correctly. The "A" is supposed to be a "u":D

    anyhow, has anyone watched the video? why isn't it shaded throughout the ad, instead of just the end when the C was hidden?

    I watched the video on the website and the entire upper right hand corner of the screen was shaded throughout the ad. Again, I have no idea what you're talking about.

    because you're being purposely obtuse... i'm talking about the upper left hand corner... watch how it changes... you know, where the "C" was supposed to be...

    The word "hang" is plainly visible if you pause the ad at 15 seconds. There's no reason for the shading, unless they wanted the word "change" to become the word "hang."

    I was talking about the upper left hand corner. Did anyone bring up a shade in the upper right hand corner? No. So I obviously made a mistake. Now who is being purposely obtuse? Go watch the video on the website that Patters provided. You can clearly see the shadow there the entire time.

    You just smack of someone who hates the right wing and will use anything as an excuse to ***** about them. Kind of like Charger fans when it comes to the Pats.
