Bet You Can't Guess Who the Antichrist Is...

This was over on Pharyngula already but I couldn't pass up posting it here. The internet is rife with websites reporting to unveil the identity of the Antichrist*, but only one loon had the foresight to snatch up the domain name AntichristIdentity.com. Unfortunately, he also took the easy way out by fingering Barack Obama, because the whackjobs have never, ever accused a Democratic president of being the Antichrist before. (Remember when Jimmy Carter "gave away" the Panama Canal?) Anyway, there's really not much to see except the age-old predilection for crazy websites to have really, really ugly formats.+ The best part, however, is that this (Unfortunately Blogspot can't replicate the original 48-point font):

*I thought it was that Sam Neil guy who was also in Jurassic Park.

There's a character in my little city who runs some sort of handyman business. The back of his trailer is decked out with a large Photoshop blend of Obama and Bin Laden, accompanied by a dense assortment of anti-Obama slogans. I'm fairly sure "antichrist" is represented on there.

Gotta love the "Obama Bin Laden" stuff. That, like "truck nuts", was no doubt kind of funny the first time or two.
