Biblical Obama

If you haven't read this piece by Gerard Baker, you should. It's a funny Biblical adaptation of Barack Obama's (Guitar Hero*) short political career. Predictably, the Obamaniacs (read: the media) are less pleased with it than anyone else. Can't these people have a sense of humor about themselves and their candidate?

(Thank you Matt Drudge for bringing it to our attention.)

It's humor, people. Someone should remind the humorless Obama surrogates in the comments section. Their response to this bit of satire is a replay of the whole New Yorker kerfuffle from a couple of weeks ago.

Here's a little sampling:
The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant. And yea, as he grew, the Child walked in the path of righteousness, with only the occasional detour into the odd weed and a little blow.
*Over the top performance, no real skill.
