Is Barack Obama the AntiChrist?

Joshua Holland: What? That's not a valid question?
On Sunday, Barack Obama announced what everyone already knew: he's "considering" a presidential run in 2008.

With Mark Warner out and an early field dominated by guys who haven't realized that their candidacy is toast before the game even starts (Evan Bayh?

That leaves one key question on everybody's minds: would an Obama run bring about the End Times?

Now, I'm not going to express my personal views about this because … well, because it's a matter of religion and I'm afraid Evan will yell at me and call me a slut.
