The presidential debate was full of words, part 2

October 2, 2008 – 4:35 am

I’m a little late in following up my previous post, but I was curious how last week’s debate Wordle looked like broken down by each candidate.

McCain:

Obama:

Lehrer:

I wish Wordle had a B.S. detection option. But such a thing would be overworked during election season…

“We’re sorry, this application is not available at the moment due to high levels of bullshit.”

  2. These are neat; i plugged my blog into wordle for fun.

    Anyway - it might be slightly more informative if the main words ’senator’, ‘mccain’, and ‘obama’ were actually removed, to see what their most-used *significant* words were..

    McCain:

    Obama:

  4. I’m wondering why the McCain wordles always end up pleasingly round…

    Maybe it’s symbolic of the symbiotic creature living in his rounded cheek…

  5. lol….

    either that, or Wordle has conservative bias! Tin foil hat ON!

    Thanks, tho… That is neat.

    I like how McCain’s, roughly in order, is “United States know spending present want got people Iraq”.

    Obama’s could be, “Going make think now. Just got Afghanistan right. Know John?”
