Barack Obama campaigns at South Carolina church...

...Hey, IRS! Is it possible for a change to start investigating churches that allow Democratic candidates to encourage votes from the pulpit?

Illinois Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama took to the pulpit at Redemption World Outreach Center and accused Republicans of pushing people aside when it comes to the faith issue. Obama also told the church that he desired to become "an instrument of God" and finished by saying: "We're going to keep on praising together. I am confident that we can create a Kingdom right here on Earth."

Sorry, Senator, but that's not going to happen until Jesus returns back to earth. Only He can untangle the mess of mankind.

Obama's comments make me think of the cycle of a political candidate: announce candidacy, criticize party opponents, then current administration and make heaping promoses, get into office, find out how unrealistic your promises were and spin things to depict your predecessor as having made it impossible for you to keep your promise.

To me, Senator Obama is 100% talk. I'd vote for the fictional Jack Bauer as a write-in candidate before I voted for him (or for Senator Hillary Clinton, for that matter).
