Is It Just Me?
. . . or is this frame from Fox News' scary trailer really depicting Barack Obama and Rahm Emmanuel as Othello and Iago? Just askin'.
The ad, seen here from YouTube, caused a stir on News Hounds and the Huffington Post last month, with writers noting the commercial's use of dark, Omen-like techno music, strobing images of fires and explosions -- and of the faces of Obama, Emmanuel and Vice President-elect Joseph Biden.
"I have done the state some service, and they know 't."
