McCain and Obama as a Pile of Words

John Schwenkler wrote an interesting short piece for the Boston Globe by putting together profiles of the US presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama, drawn from the most-used words from their respective blogs:

It’s nothing major: just a use of Wordle to pull out the most prominent words from the official McCain and Obama campaign blogs, and then some brief analysis of a few of the most interesting ones. But it is sort of fun, and I do think it’s genuinely revealing of at least some important aspects of the state of the debate.

It's interesting to note that in both McCain's, and naturally, Obama's, blogs the most often used word is "Obama," but the tone of McCain's blog is decided more negative.

Sounds about right to me. Obama presenting solutions and McCain going out of his way to slander Obama.

Heh, of course that's heavily skewed and hardly representative of anything remotely telling, but still interesting.
