Is John Mccain Secretly Chinese?

Chris Cillizza reports:

Although the fate of tonight's presidential debate in Mississippi remains very much up in the air, John McCain has apparently already won it -- if you believe an Internet ad an astute reader spotted next to this piece in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal this morning."McCain Wins Debate!" declares the ad which features a headshot of a smiling McCain with an American flag background. Another ad spotted by our eagle-eyed observer featured a quote from McCain campaign manager Rick Davis declaring: "McCain won the debate-- hands down."

Similarly, this week:

BEIJING, SEP 25 -- A [Xinhua] news story describing a successful launch of China's long-awaited
space mission and including detailed dialogue between astronauts
launched on the Internet Thursday, hours before the rocket had even
left the ground. ... The article, dated two days from now on Sept. 27, vividly described
the rocket in flight, complete with a sharply detailed dialogue between
the three astronauts:

'One minute to go!'

'Changjiang No.1 found the target!'...

'The air pressure in the cabin is normal!'

"Ten minutes later, the ship disappears below the horizon. Warm
clapping and excited cheering breaks the night sky, echoing across the
silent Pacific Ocean."

Did Team McCain train with the Xinhua guys?
