In my BOA column this week, I wrote about Roger Ebert's recent Creationism: Your questions answered post, and the ensuing fallout. Some believed he got all born again. No. I mentioned some who really did though, including Victoria Jackson. If the name sounds familiar and you can't place her, think: ukelele, handstands, Johnny Carson, the SNL bad years.
I'm not even sure how I knew she was born again, but I just found her website, and it's really a spectacle.
"Obama, call me. I'll explain Christianity to you.
Maybe you'll get saved and start loving unborn babies."
...and this lovely one, full of compassion and love:
"I don't want a political label, but Obama bears traits that resemble the anti- Christ and I'm scared to death that un- educated people will ignorantly vote him into office."
She goes on to call him a liar, communist and a racist. We've all heard this rhetoric before, so I'm not sure why this seems so particularly ugly to me...
