Jamie Foxx Calls Obama Almighty; Right Rains Hell Fire, Brimstone

Jamie Foxx may have been preaching to the choir when he declared President Obama “our Lord and Savior,” during the BET Soul Train Awards Sunday night, but he’s bringing down hell fire and brimstone from right-wing evangelicals who prefer to see Obama in, shall we say, a different light. Foxx may have been fighting fire-with-fire by bestowing on Obama a title normally reserved for, you know, God. After all, ardent religious opponents called Obama the Anti-Christ during the election campaign. ...

Kathryn Bigelow 'Zero Dark Thirty' Trailer Draws Right Wing Ire (watch)

Kathryn Bigelow’s latest film, “Zero Dark Thirty,” about the U.S. raid on Osama Bin Laden, has come under fire by right-wing nabobs. They claim it’s a political commercial for President Obama. Only one problem; it comes out weeks after the election. So what’s the beef? Apparently it’s not the film, but its first trailer that’s causing the rub. It has just been released to promote the picture. The 2:14 clip doesn't even mention the president. Even so, critics are complaining. They claim it could remind the public that the Obama gave the order to take out the Al Qaeda leader, something the Bush administration failed to do....
