Mr. Subliminal Goes To Pittsburg?

This is beyond ridiculous.

Michael Hayslip of KFJX-TV (FOX 14 Pittsburg, KS/Joplin, MO) is seeing coded racist messages in McCain ads:

Obama's catch phrase throughout this campaign has been "change".

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.

Not only is the message coded, but so is the report: Hayslip can't even bring himself to say what that word is. To their credit, Obama's people in Joplin had no comment on this theory.

Why would it not surprise me if Hayslip watched his copy of Loose Change so many times it's melted inside his DVD player?

[Afterthought] And furthermore, Obama's main catch phrase is "YES, WE CAN!". "Change" is merely one of his buzzwords, as in the catch phrase "Change we can believe in".


  1. Dang me
    Dang me
    Better take a rope`n`hang me

    Hayslip is just pointing at a sign of the times.

    Going forward, in re~ verse.

    Just a hand in the Bush,in the Bush,,the Bush

    Second verse
    Same as the First

    I'm `enery the eigth I Am
    `enery the eigth I Am, I Am

  2. Oh, and I almost four-thought.

    Crucify Him!

  3. Subliminal,
    Yeah, like all those subtle pictures of Bush with crosshairs on his head or a noose around his neck.


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
