Strong opinions, weakly held

Dog whistle politics

Fred Clark lays out a compelling argument that the most recent John McCain “just for fun” Web ad is intended to suggest to premillenial dispensationalists (adherents to a radical interpretation of Christian end times theology) that Barack Obama is the antichrist.


  1. Perhaps a good response would be to compare the candidates in a different, more Old Testament key: Able vs McCAIN.

  2. As usual, I think Fred is right on in regard to these things. And thanks for the careful wording of what PMDs are.

  3. @Dennis: That’s clever, but Cain ends up winning that contest, if by “winning” you mean “last one standing”.
