Dobson accuses Obama of 'distorting' Bible

This is the video that got Dobson's religious panties in a knot

So, Dobson says (among other things)

"Am I required in a democracy to conform my efforts in the political arena to his bloody notion of what is right with regard to the lives of tiny babies?" Dobson said. "What he's trying to say here is unless everybody agrees, we have no right to fight for what we believe."

Many of us have been quite concerned about what appears to be a heightened insertion of religion into this campaign - Obama's "committed Christian" flyer, Hillary and her association with "The Family", Jeremiah Wright, The Compassion Forum, Pastor Hagee, Reverend Parsley, just to name some of it so far (and it's only June, for "god's" sake)!

Maybe it's a good thing though. Good in the sense that a huge, festering sore being relieved of it's puss is good. This campaign might be something we point back to as the moment when millions of Americans finally woke up to the absurdity of linking religious beliefs to public discourse. Maybe videos like this one will actually be beneficial to our religiously psychotic society - over time.

The man in the second video doesn't understand bra sizes.

Yeah, I just had to bring that really important point up.

I noticed that OG, but some of his other errors in thinking just kind of over-shadowed that one for me!

Yeah, well it's obvious you're not a woman. Bra sizes are pretty important when you're wearing 'em!

Well, at least according to that carny barker, despite what anybody says about Obama's appeal to women, he seems to have the 54double-D vote sewn up.

Now Obama needs to target his message to the middle American cup sizes and he'll be OK.

Obama girl is HOT!

Ex, I think most of the middle American cup sizes are pretty big, but not in a good way.
