Wordle is neat. Very neat.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text (keep this in mind).

I heard about it this morning and have played around with it just a bit during lunch today. Then it hit me – I wonder what would happen if I put in all of Obama’s June speeches and all of McCain’s June speeches (as posted on their websites)?

The results are *quite* interesting!

McCain:

Hmph. What do you think?
