At Least Pilate Had Executive Experience

The last time Rep. Cohen, Democrat of Tennessee, drew our notice, he was betraying a bitter animosity towards Christians in the government, if not Christians sharing the planet with him at all. (“Anti-Religious Bias in the House”). This is all the stranger considering Cohen's apparent newly-discovered admiration for Jesus of Nazareth, and what he inaccurately imagines to be the Lord’s “community-organizing.”

Or maybe Cohen loves the organizing Jesus was doing, he just hates the community He actually organized.

Regardless, Cohen just couldn’t resist repeating the bad quip he lifted from the Internet, the one aimed at Gov. Sarah Palin, that runs, “Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus. . . .[but] Pontius Pilate was a governor.” (“Congressman likens Palin to Christ's crucifier”).

Bill Maher, watch out.

But the joke's on Cohen and his co-comedians. It so happens we've stolen an advanced peek at some of tomorrow's Gallup results, and it may interest you to know that, in one poll asking registered voters: "If the election were held today and the only choice is between the historical Pontius Pilate and Barack Obama," results show voters still would prefer Pilate over Obama in a landslide.
