SpaceyCat: *shakes head* This does not surprise me. Only the Right can compare their candidates and elected representatives as Jesus and/or Saints. Anyone else doing that is just blasphemy!


Duh. Jesus was a Republican.

Jesus was crucified by his own party.

No one out there on the Left has the balls to crucify Obama for his energetic support of right wing policies.

The painting doesn't even make any sense.

Lionel Mandrake: I have no idea what you're talking about libtard.


So that explains Dubya! He was haunted by two former Presidents with grossly different views on the Constitution and the purpose of government, thereby confusing him and causing him to make such poor decisions as cutting taxes and taking us to war for no apparent reason!

Damn, I almost feel sorry for the guy.

Yeah, one of them's a brown skinned guy promising help and health for the poor, proper taxation for the rich, and tolerance for all members of society.

The other was Jesus.

mrshowrules: Let's assume that Obama is a complete joke (somehow) despite all the evidence to they contrary. Who do you hold up as an example of a President (or Presidential Administration) being more serious, more mature than his?

I believe the White House needs this much humor. Comedy requires intelligence.

mrshowrules: The artist's website allows you to click on (or put your pointer) over any element and it explains to you what it means in their twisted reality. Seriously,.


Real Good art* wouldn't need an explanation. The fact he has to explain what he means speaks volumes about the quality of his "statement".

*I think technically this McNaughton's crap qualifies as "art", just not very good art.

Kurmudgeon: neenerist: .... confirming once again the Right's primary world view is locked to a Judeo-Christian lens.

And instead of showing how what the Right proposes is nothing like Christ preached, instead you confirm your prejudice.


Why is it Ok for the Right to be allowed to be prejudiced against a president of color in the name of freedom of speech, but we can't express our prejudice against outright stupidity without being called the oppressors of freedom?

Why would the left want to crucify him when they just relected him? And the Romans were Jesus own party?

Then maybe mister artist shouldn't have depicted Obama with a crown of thorns. As I understand it a crown of thorns wasn't part of the standard crucifixion package.

untaken_name: I think the real tragedy is the number of people who've grown up believing that the Romans only ever crucified one guy. What about the rest of them? Didn't anyone stop to think that maybe the artist was comparing Obama to one of the other people the Romans crucified?


Crown of Thorns is pretty much always Jesus iconography.

Befuddled: What's going to happen to all these lunatics and their Obama-obsession when Obama is done with his second term? If the next President is a Democrat, it seems like the nutjobs are going to be too burned out to start over with someone new.


They'll give it a few years, then claim he was really one of them and take credit for Obamacare and economic recovery.

Do NOT compare this excrement to one of the greatest American artists of all time. If this can be classified as art, then so can the strippers, and I want my "private membership" fee back I had to pay to get in.

Satire. Always a mystery to Conservatives.


I like to think I'm living through the biggest piece of satire ever perpetuated upon a nation right now. You aren't actually taking the Obama administration seriously, are you?

You know what the one thing more pathetic then still holding Bush hate from years and years ago?

Pretending the current president is Christ-like in any way or manner.

The irony of course, is this is from a party that preaches tolerance as long as your view is the same as mine.

We're through the looking glass, people.

I can believe it. When I tell someone to nail themselves on a cross, it's not because they're the son of God sent to die for our sins. It's because they like to cast themselves as martyrs.

Ed Grubermann: tony41454: "My intent was not to compare him to Jesus"

Unlike Jamie Foxx the blasphemer, who DID compare him to God. Apparently Jamie never read this:

"On an appointed day Herod, having put on his royal apparel, took his seat on the rostrum and began delivering an address to them. The people kept crying out, 'The voice of a god and not of a man!'
And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and died." (Acts 12:21-23)

Let hope those worms chew fast.

Funny how God hasn't given a wet fart about blasphemy since then.


It really is funny how the number of miracles/punishments has declined drastically as people started to write things down.

Sarcasm from a comedian is often lost on those who cannot grasp subtlety

Seriously, the only references to Obama the Messiah in the past few years have been coming from the
radical, activist, resentful base of the republican party.

The radical, activist, resentful base of the republican party is so damn stupid and so damn caught up in delegitimizing the
President, they can't grasp the concept that it is "they" who were the target of mockery by Jamie Foxx

On a positive note, it does mean she's posting much less about Benghazi.
