Breaking: McCain is the Antichrist

Richard Drefuss at The Nation is reporting a study by fundamentalist Christians that examines the potential of both Barack Obama and John McCain to be the Antichrist. We can rest easy that we at Clintonistas for Obama have not signed on with perdition. The study has concluded that since Obama wants to get out of Iraq, he can't be the Antichrist. Now why would the sensible course of action to get us out of Iraq as soon as possible clue the investigators that Barack Obama cannot be the Antichrist? Well, it's apparently the fact that McCain wants to stay in Iraq for a hundred years.
"What started us looking at this issue is the fact that Senator McCain has declared his intention to maintain US forces in Iraq for a hundred years," said David Jenkins, a leading Biblical scholar. "That means that McCain wants to control Babylon for at least a century." According to many scholars of the Book of Revelation, the Antichrist will try to rebuild the ancient city of Babylon in order to use it as a springboard for an international effort at world domination. Ultimately, the Antichrist will marshal forces from Babylon to spark a showdown with Christian and Jewish-led forces in the battle of Armageddon.
They continue to build their solid case with the note that McCain is of Romanian descent, and many fundamentalists believe the Antichrist will be Romanian.

But wait: there's more.

McCain's great great grandfather was named Mihai, a word that means, "who is like the Lord." What's more, McCain is genial and folksy, and "the Bible tells us that (the Antichrist) will be charming."

I think they've got him dead to rights.

Barack Obama for president!
