A word cloud can be created by analyzing a set of words and tallying up how often each word appears. You then increase the font of the word (or other such things) and compose them together to show what the gist of this set of words is.

Here is a neat one of the healthcare debate.  I daresay that nothing here is surprising. I’m sure we could all recreate the sentences from which each of these words were pulled.
