It's Getting Nasty... Nasty Funny!

Political name calling happens in every election... but this year the theme is definitely "Same Circus, Different Clowns"

Well here's a brief synopsis of some back-and-forth.

Palin: "(A small town mayor) is kind of like being a community organizer, but with actual responsibility."

Obama Supporters: "Jesus was a Community Organizer, Pilate was a Governor"

Now asside for historical/theological inaccuracies, but honestly, how often do liberals really read the Bible and keep it in context.

Sure, Pilate was a governor, but it was Jesus' own people (the Jews) who condemned him. Pilate was just under pressure from Rome to not loose control of Judea. When Jesus came in with his ideals that upset the existing Jewish status-quo (kind of like Palin in the Alaskan political system) it was the Jewish Leadership who wanted him killed. Pilate offered them Barabbas, a convicted murderer, but mob rule demanded Jesus be crucified...

Okay that was a long-winded explanation for something that all worked out in the end, but I think the best way to say it is:

"I know Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is a friend of mine. Barack Obama, you're no Jesus Christ!"
