John McCain's website posted two videos for his supporters to choose between that depict the media's infatuation with Senator Obama. Here is version 1 which is leading version 2 86% to 14%.
Attack ad or just a reminder of Barack's superior appeal? Got a warm fuzzy feeling? <3
Obama and McCain both spoke on July 23, 2008, but in front of very different backgrounds.
Barack Obama speaks about Israel's security needs in the town of Sderot while standing in front of a pile of mortar shells.
John McCain responds to reporters about domestic and foreign policy issues and denies his Surge gaffe while standing in front of an aisle of cheese. McCheez indeed.

Jul 24 - US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama made a pre-dawn visit to Jerusalem's Western Wall on Thursday (July 24).
Obama placed a prayer he had written in the wall and bowed his head while a rabbi read a psalm calling for peace in the holy city.
The visit was not without controversy as at least one worshipper chanted "Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale" and "Jerusalem is our land".
Obama is due to fly to Germany later on Thursday where he will give the only public speech of his week-long foreign tour at the Victory Column in Berlin's central Tiergarten park.
The outdoor address on trans-Atlantic ties is likely to draw tens of thousands.
"The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand. The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. The walls between races and tribes; natives and immigrants; Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand. These now are the walls we must tear down."
