He clearly got it from Kos, as mentioned all over the web last week. We await somebody to provide a rational explanation for the analogy other than that Barack = Jesus, Palin = Pilate. Not sure what else we should be taking away from it, because by most accounts Christ wasn't interested in community organizing.
By the way, what's up with that hairdo?
Cohen speaks, again:
"I didn't and I wouldn't compare anyone to Jesus. Jesus cannot be compared to anyone. What I pointed out was that Jesus was a force of change, and those who work to accomplish change deserve respect."And Jake Tapper responds:
On the ABC News blog "Political Punch," national correspondent Jake Tapper wrote, "Prediction: the Democrats will soon put him (Cohen) in a sack and throw him in a basement."Ouch. Maybe a little too harsh for Congressman Steve. An apology would do fine.
By the way, his correction on Jesus' role is still not right. He was not there to become a force for change in the community or the nation, but to change hearts and save souls. He called himself a sword, pitting brother against brother, and told the Israelites to render to Caesar what was his. Remember, Palin was dissing the community organizer from heaven because she was attacked beforehand as a small-town mayor. As if the truth matters anymore.
