Obama = Antichrist?!?

Did John McCain and posse really intend to portray Barack Obama as the Antichrist in this recent campaign ad?

Decide for yourself....

Phred22--All the signifiers seem too calculated to be accidental.

A new low in attack ads.

Eric--but was there a religious context to any of Obama's original quotes? If I arrive at a party, for instance, and announce myself by saying jokingly, "The one you've been waiting for is finally here!" and then an enemy takes the cameraphone clip of me saying that and edits it to place my face next to a Bible, that's pretty much a dirty trick in my book.

Cap'n Ahd--yours is a voice we need to hear more of.

Steve--your POV also is one that needs a larger public platform.

Irene--it does earn points for audacity and some editing cleverness.

Stan--Couldn't we use someone with the ability to command the (rising global) waters right now?

Big Gary--as the linked-to article claims, the ad is really a McCain-endorsed item.

And you make very good points.

Eric--I applaud all satire and parodies against everyone equally--until the item causes nutcases to take a potshot at the "antichrist."

Which of course has not yet happened.

Scot--pretty sure the ad is web-only so far.
