Breaking News: Neocon David Horowitz Says Obama is Not the Anti-Christ

In Chattering classes/punditry, neoconservatives, off-beat, politics on April 4, 2009 by Editor Z

How insane of a world has this become when neoconservative writer,Islamaphobe, and McCarthyist David Horowitz becomes a voice of reason for the right wing?

Conservatives, please. Let’s not duplicate the manias of the Left as we figure out how to deal with Mr. Obama. He is not exactly the anti-Christ, although a disturbing number of people on the Right are convinced he is.

I have recently received commentaries that claim that “Obama’s speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history” and “never has a politician in this land had such a quasi-religious impact on so many people” and “Obama is a narcissist,” which leads the author to then compare Obama to David Koresh, Charles Manson, Stalin and Saddam Hussein. Excuse me while I blow my nose.

(H/T: Andrew Sullivan)

Certainly didn’t see this one coming. Especially since Horowitz himself has constantly compared Obama and his party to Stalinists, Marxists, and other such inflamatory labels in the past. Now does this mean Horowitz has found sanity? Doubt it, but it could be a good first step.
