Wow. The Huffington Post rounded up all these new attacks on Barack Obama by the McCain campaign and various GOP operatives -- but before reading them, be warned: Prolonged exposure to some of these messages (e.g. voting for Obama might lead to a "tragic outcome" for Jewish people) made us want to take a shower.
Gen. Colin Powell won't say who will get his vote this November, but on Thursday's "Good Morning America," the former secretary of state put in a good word for all three front-runners, praised Obama's Rev. Wright speech and worried that the U.S. armed forces are becoming "very, very stretched" by the protracted wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Would God ever damn America? Is there anything we have done or could do as a nation that might court such severe judgment from an almighty, or is there a peculiar American exemption from God's wrath? The prediction of God's damnation for bad behavior is made in both black and white churches.
