So, now according to John McCain, Senator Obama is the anti-Christ.

If this latest political strategy of the GOP and Senator McCain was not so un-Christian and un-American, their desperate attempt to portray a United States Senator as the anti-Christ would be laughable or at least generate a bit of pity.

Republican Party fear tactics to elect George Bush targeted those among us easily led to be afraid of countries which did not attack us and non-existent mushroom clouds. They encouraged fear until some voters saw Al Qaeda hiding under every bed. The GOP even specifically targeted those voters whose greatest fear was Americans who are simply homosexual. They have now outdone themselves with their latest attempt at fostering hatred and division.

Now with only 10% of Americans still believing the GOP's less than subtle message that Senator Obama is a Muslim, the classic Rove Strategy is again running in high gear and, as before, depends on fear, intolerance and ignorance to succeed a third time. The far-right political shock jocks and mass-produced spam emails weren't getting the job done. They were not generating enough fear about Senator Obama. It was time to play hardball.

Enter the McCain campaign to save the GOP by spreading its own unique message of fear across the internet to remind voters that Republicans are the only ones who can keep us safe from the worst they can convince us to believe.

Even as McCain's campaign and the GOP belatedly protest that their advertisement suggesting Senator Obama is the anti-Christ is simply a "joke", their campaign strategists know full well some voters are already going through their entire collection of the Left Behind series looking for confirmation of this latest GOP claim.


The McCain GOP strategists understand these voters will be too busy to notice the real world while the 'truth' is right before their eyes:

"This mudslem, am sure he's one of 'them', is indeed a junior senator!"

"Yes, look here, it's right here in the book!!"

"The speech, the speech, he gave a speech just like that! I knew it, I just knew it!"

"I'm sending this solid proof out to everyone on my email list!"

"I'm checking my bible right now!!!"

"I'm going straight to my IRC political chat room and post this important information!"

"We need to expose this Obama as the anti-Christ before it's too late!"

Never mind that Reverend Tim LaHaye, who recognized the GOP advertisement as coming straight from his very popular and very fictional Left Behind series, stated: "The antichrist isn't going to be an American, so it can't possibly be Obama. The Bible makes it clear he will be from an obscure place, like Romania." Facts will not enter into this latest GOP campaign smear strategy.

"If you believe in Jesus, you'll vote against the anti-Christ!"
