Visiting Jesus Politics (it is Sunday), I ran across a link to The Curse of Ham: Why Barack Hussein Obama Will Never Be President, brought to us by Baptists for Brownback. The post relies on racist theology to explain why Obama can’t be president, and the commenters take the ball and run with it to some remarkable places:

If the Lord wanted to save dark folks, He wouldn’t have sent Jesus down with blond hair.
I’m just saying . . .
And these are the mild comments, since I don’t want the really bad ones to appear on my blog. The post gets so over the top that Andrew Sullivan asks: Is this for real? Which shows the sites brilliance. It lives on the thin line that separates crazy from satire. You can’t tell whether it’s real or not, because none of us would put this thing past the wingnuts out there.
But information wants to be free, and this site has a particularly clever way of dishing it out. If you use “parody” in your comment it’s changed to “psrodt” when it posts.
That’s it; the only time the site breaks character. But it’s enough, since there’s no reason to put that comment filter in unless you want to tip off the curious. The True Believers wouldn’t think to ask. I’m impressed by this little piece of culture jam.
