Mycloudofdreams calls this video Decision 2008. It shows close-ups of the talking mouths of both candidates, and it’s set to ethereal music. The only words you hear are, “I’m ___, and I approve this message.” The meaning? Up to you to decide. (Thanks, Sue Salinger.)

Is this about empty words? Is it significant that someone sits down to watch the Obama portion — and that the music revs up a notch at that point? Who knows, but it’s sort of mesmerizing.
