     After John McCain’s presidential campaign strayed from the high road and began to run the standard Republican campaign of lies and distortions, I was not surprised to learn that Fox News political analyst Karl Rove (a.k.a: Bush’s Brain) had become an “informal” advisor to McCain’s campaign.

     An integral part of Rove-style campaigns is to falsely accuse your opponent of anything you are guilty of--before your opponent rightly accuses you. This is meant to “inoculate” the candidate from that same criticism--like framing Barack Obama as a rich elitist, so no one can point out that John McCain is a multi-millionaire, owns ten homes and wears $520 Ferragamo loafers.

     This is why McCain’s recent campaign ad referring to Obama as The One is so intriguing. “The One” is a term used in the Left Behind series of books written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins (with over 63 million copies sold). In these books, The One refers to the Antichrist. So... Does McCain’s commercial, suggesting to evangelicals that Barack Obama is the Antichrist, mean that John McCain is really the AntiChrist? Hmmm...I wonder.

     Now the True Bible Society of Colorado Springs, CO is about to publish an article in next month’s End Times Journal, which bears out this theory (The Nation, 8/8/08):

     Biblical scholar David Jenkins said they became interested when McCain declared his intention to keep US forces in Iraq for a hundred years. Many Biblical scholars believe that the Antichrist will occupy the city of Babylon and use it as a springboard in his quest for world domination.

     Jenkins says, “Given that [the end times] may be imminent, the person who controls Babylon must be the Antichrist. ...and since Obama wants to get out of Iraq, he can't be the Antichrist.”

     Suspicions were further aroused when they discovered that John McCain's great-grandfather’s name was not McCain, but Mihai, an ancient Romanian name, which means 'who is like the Lord'.

“As far as we’re concerned, that was enough. It means that McCain might easily pretend to be the Redeemer,” said Jenkins.

     That settles it. John McCain must be the Antichrist, but I would have bet anything that Vice President Dick Cheney was The One.

     Maverick Republican John McCain made a quick campaign stop at the big annual motorcycle rally in Sturgis, SD. While there, he suggested his wife should compete in the Miss Buffalo Chip beauty contest--an event that features partial to total nudity and often simulated sex acts involving bananas.

     That got their motors revving; but on a more serious note, McCain explained how he was going to win the war in Iraq:

·        “We’ll win it the right way by winning it.”

     McCain didn’t happen to mention when this glorious victory was going to happen, but I’m sure it won’t be until sometime after he is President.

     Not everyone at the event was impressed with McCain’s performance. Since he was speaking at a ‘Tribute to American Veterans’, many vets present hoped that McCain would pledge more help for disabled veterans, but he didn’t. This came as no surprise to anyone familiar with McCain’s long record of screwing veterans and our troops in general (more on this in an upcoming column).
