You know how politicians speak in code that only the base will understand? Well I grew up Pentacostal and I’m pretty sure McCain just called Obama the Antichrist.
So does a group of Democratic consultants, who argue that a seemingly innocent McCain ad mocking Obamamania actually implies that the Democratic candidate is the great deceiver prophesied in the Biblical book of Revelation. The neat trick is that this accusation turns all Obama’s strengths into weaknesses. Great speaker? So is the Antichrist. Seems like he’ll bring world peace? So will the Antichrist. Doesn’t buy $500 shoes? Oh, there’s probably a verse about that.
