The Chosen One and the Govenor

Democrat Representative Steve Cohen of TN:.

 “I submit to you, Mr. Speaker, that the parties have differences. But if you want change, you want the Democratic Party. Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus, who our minister prayed about. Pontius Pilate was a governor. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.”

For the slow folks out there, he is, in essence, comparing Obama to Jesus and Sarah Palin to Pilate.

Nice. 

Well…after all…he is the “Chosen One”.

    I’ve heard a few other people say Jesus was a community organizer.

    What a stupid statement.

    Jesus was a carpenter and a Rabbi.

    Oh, and unlike Senator Obama, Jesus was against killing innocent babies.

    out of curiosity, what does abortion have to do with anything? it is a topic that should be addressed, certainly, but what on earth does it have to do with whether or not jesus was a community organizer?

    that said, the quoted comment is absurd. even if you think obama is an upstanding citizen and the best possible candidate, what he does (what any senator does) and what jesus did are totally different. the comparison was absurd, and if the intent was to help obama, well…all it did was make representative cohen look a little less than all there. but then, what can you expect from a tennessee democrat? (TOTALLY kidding. i was actually born in tn and lived there until i was almost 30.)
