In every campaign, some mud must be slung. And until recently, Obama has enjoyed the reputation of running the "cleaner campaign." But apparently the s**t's about to get real, because Obama's gloves are off and he's come out swinging with an attack ad ... attacking McCain for ... attacking him. That confusing concept is about to play out before your very eyes, with some minor adjustments by yours truly (purely for the sake of simplicity).
Actual impending doom like global climate change or mass extinction just makes people bored.
In some cases, the Marvel source material just did better.
