Barack Obama and George W. Bush share one thing in common: they produce strong reactions. Filmmaker Spike Lee has recently likened Obama to Jesus Christ, while over at John McCain's camp they've released a statement that suggests showing McCain with George W. Bush is enough to constitute an attack ad.
Spike, confident that Obama will win, uses the Jesus imagery to suggest that after Obama becomes president we will no longer use BC and AD to chronicle time, but BO and AO. Spike explained:
"When that happens, it will change everything . . .You'll have to measure time by "Before Obama" and "After Obama." It's an exciting time to be alive now."
