Is Obama the Anti-Christ?/Is CNN crazy?



TPM clipped that together, so I don't know how ridiculous CNN actually looked, but it sure looks crazy in that montage.

Snopes investigates the Anti-Christ "rumor" here and declares it false. Thanks, Snopes.

Anyone who thinks Obama is the anti-christ doesn't have much respect for the Devil. I am thinking the anti-christ would look more like George Clooney and less like Steve Urkel. The anti-christ also would be able to put two sentences together in answer to a question without a teleprompter. I am definitely of the Milton school of evil. I think the devil is a really interesting and charming guy. Considering that, Obama is the last person I would guess to be the anti-christ.

What next? Hillary is really the Wicked Witch? McCain is the feared wizard? Bill Clinton is Toto?

This is an interesting campaign. it has all of the elements of entertainment; drama, comedy, sexcapades, scandal- real or imagined, tear jerking, and posturing. I nominate the 2008 campaign for the Emmy Award for best, er, entertaining show.

Christy said...

Of course not. Everybody knows that the Pope is the Anti-Christ.

Well, he is a lawyer (?)

Just kidding.

The whole campaign is becoming a noisy bore. I think many are tuning out.

Crimso said...

More like Sauron, really. And I'm really losing sleep over the possibility.

David said...

He's the anti-Crist. If Obama had been running in Florida, that empty-suited pretty face never would have been governor!

It's an experiement to plumb what women are willing to watch.

David said...

McCain + antichrist = 890,000 Google hits.

Richard said...

Oh, don't be silly. Of course he's the Anti-Christ. Just look at him. He's so obviously evil, AND he's a celebrity.

SteveR said...

Roger is correct.. No and Yes

harrogate said...

O that liberal media. They give such tripe play under the auspices of mockery.

But not even in mockery are questions like this ever asked on television: will a McCain Presidency bring more wars?

Blue Moon said...

Silly CNN -- everyone knows that Joel Osteen is the anti-christ. Just watch his interview with Larry King... talk about a false prophet with millions under his sway.

Seven Machos said...

Will Obama end war?

harrogate said...

Obama might be a bit less eager for them, at any rate. FWIW

Henry said...

Ronald (6) Wilson (6) Reagan (6) was the Anti-Christ too, so Obama is in good company.

PatCA said...

For some reason I can't play these videos on your site any more. And after I type a few words in comments, they disappear and I have to start over. Anybody else having a problem?

Nah, uh.......

Google hits:
Spelling - antichrist/anti-christ:

Bush - 1,350,000/1,770,000
Obama - 1,100,000/1,450,000
The Pope - 800,000/963,000

Pathetic level of discussion.

I've always had the impression that when it hits us that the Anti-Christ is the Anti-Christ it'll be after he's got us by the short hairs.

PatCA--

I mentioned something about blogger the other day. This time everything worked ok.

Jeremy said...

Spread Eagle-
That's why I say that everyone in the news or entertainment is the anti-christ. I'll eventually be right and then BOOYAH, let the gloating begin.

As long as he's not the Mahdi, I'm cool.

PatCA said...

Victoria,
LOL! That would be something -- "that I'm-a-dinner-jacket wacko was right!"

vbspurs said...

that I'm-a-dinner-jacket wacko was right!"

PatCa, I have a blogpost hovering around this coming out soon. ;)

(It actually involves Orson Welles...)

Some one should ask Putin's opinion.
