There are some people who think this ad by John McCain compares Barack Obama to the antichrist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mopkn0lPzM8 Personally I don’t see this connection but apparently that is because I have not read the Christian series on life after the apocalypse, “Left Behind.”
From the Wall Street Journal:
“The spot, called "The One," opens with the line: "It shall be known that in 2008 the world will be blessed." Images follow of Moses parting the Red Sea and Sen. Obama telling a crowd, "We are the change we've been waiting for."
The McCain called the ad ‘lighthearted,’ I call it nauseating. Even without the link to evil, it is truly annoying. What’s worse, intellectually I know that it speaks to a number of people. So, if I am correct, the McCain people are playing up the fact that Obama makes very broad statements during speeches, as if he invented the platitude. Whatever. Wake me up when November ends.
