This strange looking man in the corner has appeared on my screen for DAYS. Surrounded with what looks like both cash and flames which, based on the clawed shape of his hand, looks like the flames were launched from his own fingers.

Now I know there is no direct control over what ads will show, but there must be a way to trick the google bot to put a less frightening ad on the front page.

Man, I can't stand that. I wish Bob would draw the line there.

That's Ben Bernanke, isn't it?
I've been seeing similar ads again and again telling me to tell Scott Brown various things. It's better than Ann Coulter or "Free Newt".

It actually doesn't bother me at all, just wanted to point it out. My favorite though was the flash animated woman in a bikini who expanded and shrunk before our eyes.

Just about anything is better than that Ann Coulter ad. She is one scary looking character!
