Democrat compars Obama to Jesus, Palin to Pontius Pilate

BRAZILE: First of all, I don’t think they understand the role of a community organizer, often to help people who are in distress, they’ve lost their jobs, they’ve lost their homes, they’ve lost their health care. And for many of us, it’s a time honored tradition to give back, especially those who have been rewarded with so much.

The Bible says to whom much is given much is required and it comes out of that tradition. So it was insulting to see both, you know, the governor as well as Mayor Giuliani criticize people. There’s some on the Internet now that Jesus was a community organizer, Pontius Pilate was a governor. And perhaps they should understand the role of a community organizer, do help people in distress.


A Democratic Congressman, Rep. Steve Cohen, made the same comparison:

A CNN producer showcases work by a college student, where he portrays Obama as Jesus:

Some see God's will in Obama win

"No one saw him coming, and Christians believe God comes at us from strange angles and places we don't expect, like Jesus being born in a manger."

A man invented the "Obama salute" :lol: very reminiscient from Orwell's 1984:

“Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama’s nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future,” says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc. Husong tells me that he got the idea after seeing the famous Obama-Progress poster by artist Shepherd Fairey. “We wanted to get involved some way,” he says. So, the agency came up with their own a symbol of hope and progress that also plays off Obama’s name. “We thought, ‘Let’s try and start a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama,’ ” says Husong.

Nice!
One of the market research companies ran a poll in Australia just before the presidential elections in the US and it discovered that if Australians could vote for the US president, 80 percent of Australians would have voted for Obama!
Cheers

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Not very surprising. In Washington D.C. (predominantly African-American), the percentage of people that voted for him was something like 95%. This is part of the reason why Obama's inauguration will be so crazy, because everybody from Washington D.C. is going to celebrate it, in addition to the people coming from other states and overseas. I'd like to go, but I keep hearing that it will be insane (nearly all the bridges to Washington D.C. will be closed and direct traffic by road will be limited to certain buses).

I voted for him. But if Hillary Clinton got the nomination, I probably would've voted for McCain... Maybe not, though. It depends on who Hillary's running-mate would've been (Clinton\Biden is definitely better than McCain\Palin), but in a strict head-to-head campaign between Hillary Clinton and John McCain, McCain definitely has slightly more integrity.
