GoneGirl - 2008-06-14

Is it . . . is it okay for a major politician to say these things? Am I living in a country where this is okay now?

voodoo_pork - 2008-06-14

You always were. You just didn't know it. No one else did either.

glasseye - 2008-06-14

So awesome.

B. Weed - 2008-06-14

I look forward to Cal Thomas insinuating he's the Antichrist.

Xenocide - 2008-06-14

Hey, who else read Cal's colum from the day the Sex in the City movie came out? He tried to the moral decay it represents to Barack Obama, and told us that "my grandmother had a word for women like the ones on sex in the city: WHORES."

Cleaner82 - 2008-06-14

To be fair, the Sex and the City women have always disgusted me. Less for their sexual freedom and more for their lack of souls.

garcet71283 - 2008-06-14

To be fair, he fits the bill pretty tightly.

StanleyPain - 2008-06-14

I can smell what Barack is cooking.

voodoo_pork - 2008-06-15


StanleyPain - 2008-06-15

That was exactly the point. Thank you.

grimcity - 2008-06-14

So good.

Jimmy Labatt - 2008-06-14

This man is class personified.

Him being elected will be the best thing to happen to the US since forever (just a humble Canadian's opinion stop throwing broken bottles Enjoy)

Lorenzo - 2008-06-14

Seconding class personified.

Ersatz - 2008-06-14

Second class citizen personified.

This is the belief system you end up with when you not only believe the Bible, but you actually read it.

Billy Buttsex - 2008-06-15

Barack: "and by the way, I am against abortion for religious reasons, which means I think God told me to do this, but I will not enforce God's will. He's only GOD, after all, and we disagree about what God has to say. I am a rational person, after all."

zatojones - 2008-06-16

God did not write the constitution

voodoo_pork - 2008-06-30

WTF are you talking about?!

Aubrey McFate - 2008-06-14

I like the shout-outs to non-believers. Bout time we got some pandering.

SolRo - 2008-06-14

Ohh shit, we can vote?

glasseye - 2008-06-14

Despite what the Bushes say, we are indeed Americans.

Baldr - 2008-06-14

Bush II said that you guys should be considered Americans in his debate against John Kerry. I found it to be a pretty impressive statement, given what Bush I said on the subject.

glasseye - 2008-06-15

I stand corrected.

oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2008-06-18

Bush I once referred to the Religious Right as the "extra-chromosome crowd"

Xenocide - 2008-06-14

I love this guy so much more now. A politician who talks about the Bible AND ACTUALLY UNDERSTANDS IT? Holy shit.

Of course, it's just a matter of time before this gets plastered all over Fox News. Well, not this, but out-of-context clips of him saying "we are no longer a Christian nation," "a Muslim nation," and a nation of nonbelievers.

+1000 stars for the line about the sermon on the mount.

boner - 2008-06-14

Did Obama hire Julia Sweeney as his speech writer?

Cleaner82 - 2008-06-14

Haha, I love this guy. I look forward to see what color and texture of bile people will spew in this direction.

waxeater - 2008-06-14

Love this dude, and I love what he's saying, but I don't love the fact that we're in a situation where he needs to say it. Let's hope that can change.

sheikurbouti - 2008-06-14

Every time she hears his voice, Michelle Malkin's eyes cross a little bit more.

Blackbetta - 2008-06-14

And every time someone writes something like that, Michelle collects it for her "look what the liberals say about me" file and uses it like a defense whenever she says something completely out-of-line.

That's not to say you're not right, though. Eventually she'll have so many lines like that she'll get a hint of a clue.

Adramelech - 2008-06-14

Well... shit.

ScrubbingBubbles - 2008-06-14

I just want to give him a great big hug.

Pillager - 2008-06-14


TeenerTot - 2008-06-14

I'm confused. This...feeling inside. Could it be hope?

erratic - 2008-06-14

I'm getting tempted to vote for the O-Bomb over nader now...

AgentOrange - 2008-06-14

Please do.

AgentOrange - 2008-06-14

Also, five stars.

Camonk - 2008-06-14

McCain deserves to lose, America deserves for Obama to win. So yes, please vote for Obama instead of Nader.

NoCode - 2008-06-14

Oh FUUUUUCK YES. This is indeed what the five-star button is for.

revdrew - 2008-06-14

Christ almighty his balls must be huge.

NoCode - 2008-06-14

He's got balls of steel. Balls of steel. Balls balls balls balls balls of steel.

balls balls balls balls balls balls...etc.

rustedmutt - 2008-06-14

This man makes my atheist ass yell 'HALLEY LOO YAH!'

Brautwurst_Barbarian - 2008-06-14

I don't know what the big fuss is guys. Just because he got to become the presidential candidate thanks to affirmative action doesn't mean he's any good.

Also, don't you think he's a bit TOO black? I mean asfsajfsdhflkasdjslfkjwflgajkgasfk.jqhlasdfklasdsdaklfh;flksdhfs;k lfah;lsdkfhasdl;fhsdfsdfsdf

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-06-14

It's like I've travelled to an alternate dimension where leaders are allowed to say sane things in public.

Ursa_minor - 2008-06-14

I can't believe this is real.

Millard - 2008-06-14

I'm torn between "Holy shit, that was amazing" and "Now more than ever do I think that someone is going to kill this man before the elections occur".

I'm not going to bother checking the Youtube comments for this.

yeahjim - 2008-06-14

I guess the dawning of the Age of Aquarius came a little late?

Comatose2 - 2008-06-14

Actually, the Age of Aquarius doesn't even start until 2150.


yeahjim - 2008-06-14

Well shit! I guess that's what they call QED.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-06-15

There are various calendars and estimates. The other major one is a little after 2060.

dueserpenti - 2008-06-14

The 21st century has come, bitches, and it's going to be a good one.

Camonk - 2008-06-14

Now that was a speech on religion. C'mon McCain, what do you have to say to that one?

StanleyPain - 2008-06-14

"That's not change we can believe in..mmhehehehhe he he he...."

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-06-15

"I'll be dead in the hard cold ground before I recognize Missoura!"

Exegesis_Saves - 2008-07-26

I'm going to buy a piece of fruit with a coupon and then return it.

What kind of soulless bastard hates Tom Waits over something like that?

waxeater - 2008-06-14

I wonder if FNC's coverage of this will include the phrase: "Oh no he din't!" plus some snapping.

a flaming monkey - 2008-06-14

I'm just happy he didn't say '...and we are a scientologist nation'. Amen.

Valvados - 2008-06-14

I want to clone myself so I can vote for this man multiple times.

Senator_Unger - 2008-06-14

Why go through the hassle when voter fraud is so much easier?

Stopheles - 2008-06-14

It's refreshing to hear a Christian who's actually read the Bible (and maybe even follows the red-letter text, rather than just reading Leviticus and Revelation like the Evangelicals)...almost as refreshing as hearing a Presidential candidate who is likely Smarter Than Us.

Stopheles - 2008-06-14

Also, his point about "whose Christianity would be the official one?" absolutely NEEDS to be made.

bacon-swiss - 2008-06-14

Yeah, I'll five star that.

oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2008-06-14

This guy might be president.

theSnake - 2008-06-15

He just says what he thinks, not pre-canned sound bites that have been focus-grouped and rehearsed. And what he thinks is always thoughtful and correct.

Hooker - 2008-06-15

Not really an Obama fan, but this is a pretty easy five to give.

RockBolt - 2008-06-15

I can finally see a glimmer of light at the end of this godforsaken tunnel

This is basically the same as that scene in the West Wing, but even better

6 billion stars

Schraff - 2008-06-15

Calling it now: Obama wins in a landslide only to be assassinated before his first term is finished. Just because I'm too cynical to believe something with so much potential can end well.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-06-15

If we live in a world where this happened and Bush continued to jaunt over golf courses I would pray for a meteor to wipe this country off the fucking map.

Cleaner82 - 2008-06-15

That's more or less what everybody's afraid of, which is what was behind the whole hilary/kennedy thing not too long ago.

kingarthur - 2008-06-15

I think I might actually vote proudly and without regret for the first time in my life.

Billy Buttsex - 2008-06-15

I vote James Dobson AND Leviticus, please!

Billy Buttsex - 2008-06-15

Barack: "and by the way, I am against abortion for religious reasons, which means I think God told me to do this, but I will not enforce God's will. He's only GOD, after all, and we disagree about what God has to say. I am a rational person, after all."

kingarthur - 2008-06-15

If you believe in an imaginary bully in the sky, then God says a lot of things. None of which seem to have been updated since Ancient Rome. Or the Council of Nicea.
Like I said, God says a lot of things. Very little of it useful.

Cleaner82 - 2008-06-15

Aww... don't reward this flaccid blob of weaksauce that passes for Billy's counterpoint with a response.

KnowFuture - 2008-06-15

I vote for "Shut the" AND "fuck up" please!

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-06-16

For years, historians have known that out of the original books that make up the Pentateuch, Leviticus was the last written. It was a coda set up by the Levite priests, whose power had waned and waxed for centuries. At one point the most common worship was dualistic: Yahweh was the Father God and Asherah, or Ashtoreth, was his female consort. The dual godship ended after millenia, but it took several periods of censorship and force to stamp out the female part of the religion for good. Once this was accomplished, the folktales of the Israelites was codified. Whereas before the texts had been simple, (and today can be recognized as a precursor in the Book of J), with the Levites they became dogmatic. This did not happen until Solomon was in power, and by that time Israel was involved in a number of land conflicts from thereon. Laws and codes such as the ones in Leviticus provided them with a stabilzing force that brought the Jews together. Unfortunately for our modern society, the anti homosexual verses were included, but not for the reasons many assume today. The laws so often referred to were created because men were encouraged to propogate and father as many children as possible. The Jews were surrounded by geography and on all sides by different belief systems, which often encroached their own culture. Therefore, an avid population was the ideal, and sperm was considered to be community property. Homosexual relations wasted the valuable oppurtunity to father children and was therefore condemned as wasteful. Over time this became differently viewed as a moral code, though the original intent was far more practical.

Jimmy Labatt - 2008-06-15

Oops forgot to favourite this how silly of me

Caminante Nocturno - 2008-06-15

"So, before we get carried away, let's read our Bibles."

A message that's arrived about thirty years too late, but a good one regardless.

This is honestly the first time I've ever heard a politician talk about religion in a way that didn't disgust me in some way, and I am so not used to that.

Mike Tyson?! - 2008-06-15

I like how the non-5 star votes didn't leave a comment.

halon - 2008-06-15

It's because almo is STICKING IT TO THE MAN by showing him that we don't cotton to WELL THOUGHT OUT SPEECHES and shit round heah.

Fight the power almo, you tremendous faggot.

Hooker - 2008-06-15

Man you guys take votes way too seriously.

almo - 2008-06-20

Sorry for not believing in your chocolate messiah, halon.

longwinded - 2009-12-12

oh how fucking surprising almo's a racist prick

dorje - 2008-06-15

If he gets assassinated during his first term I propose he be treated as martyr of a Revolution. Just saying.

FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown - 2008-06-15

This just in: almo in the running for PoE TV's most worthless chomo nig.

almo - 2008-06-20

A child rapist? Really?

Hey chomo, have you stopped beating your 14 year old wife in between rounds of nigger-lynching?

Magical Man from Happy-Land - 2008-06-16

Holy shit

ChocFullOfFunk - 2008-06-17

Something...strange happens at the end...

sshrugg - 2008-06-19

This is a fantastic speech. -1 for the crazy editing at the end, though. Makes me nervous that something important was cut.

Mayberry Pancakes - 2008-06-20

Holy cow, does this mean I don't have to be ashamed of being Protestant anymore??

And he's sticking to the actual text of the Bible??

This is madness!

DopeFiend - 2008-06-21

Too smart, too sane. Either some loony's gonna shoot him or the Right will conspire to bring down his presidency.

takewithfood - 2008-06-23

I'll happily hand out my 5-stars now, but I'll decide whether or not to favourite it in 4 years.

Cena_mark - 2008-08-05

What he meant to say was "All infidels must die. Accept Allah or be slaughtered! ALLAH AKBAR!!!"

Hooper_X - 2008-08-07

Oh, Cena_Mark, you ARE the best bad troll on POETV.

Also, this ruled.

glasseye - 2008-08-07

So inept at trolling. He's like a cute little bunny who's trying to be evil for the very first time.

Sexy Duck Cop - 2015-04-12

Oh Cena_Mark. How you've grown.

thebaronsdoctor - 2008-08-14

Well, he's not Mike Gravel, but he'll do.

Orochi - 2008-09-17

Nothing new to add, but it is worth checking out the full version for more rational awesomeness.

Triggerbaby - 2008-09-22

This one's a keeper, America.

IrishWhiskey - 2008-10-06

Well, its the pluralist, non-pandering, religious guy, or the non-religious, pandering to extremists guy.

Gee, isn't this a hard choice?

Runic - 2008-11-02

I wonder what it will be like to have a president that I can actually be proud of. I can hardly remember what that feels like.

fluffy - 2008-11-05

Yes we can

FineFilter - 2008-12-01

Thank god religious people don't understand big words.

Pie Boy - 2009-01-20

splatterbabble - 2009-02-16

No mention of Xenu.

Ahriman the Creepy Lurker - 2009-05-07

Pointing out the divisions within Christianity itself? Saying it's okay for other religious viewpoints (including atheism) to exist? Namedropping the Sermon on the Mount?

God damn do I love me some hot sweaty rational thought.

numb - 2010-04-19

I like this.
