    U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign has bought $5 million worth of advertising time from NBC Universal to run TV spots during the Olympic Games, a source familiar with the deal said on Wednesday.

    The package, believed to be an unprecedented political media buy for the Olympics, includes commercials that will run on the NBC network and cable channels such as USA, MSNBC and CNBC during the August broadcast of the Summer Games, the source said.

    Obama inspired a lot of people(1.5 million contributors) to donate their hard earned money to help him get elected. I hope he is uses it to overcome the lies that are being told about him.

    Like the fact that McCain is a "secret Muslim?"

    Or that McCain has a black baby?

    Or maybe that McCain wants a 100 year war in Iraq, or maybe the one about McCain being bush 3.

    Lies are ugly no matter who is telling them.
