President Faust?

James Pinkerton over at Fox News is trying to draw a connection between Obama and Satan through the radical Saul Olinski. He gives as evidence the dedication in one of Olinski's books: “Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgement of the very first radical, from all our legends, mythology, and history … the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.” I don't think the connection is really all that strong, since I think Obama is actually an atheist and doesn't believe in anything buy his own ego -- and any government he would be in charge of. Obama has already admitted that he joined Rev. Wright's church with its racist, Marxist version of Christianity for political reasons, so there's good reason to believe he never really believed in the Christianity part of the church he went to. Since there is little doubt in my mind Obama doesn't believe in God, I don't think he believes in Satan, either. Of course, to many a Christian, that's only proof-positive that Satan has his back.

All of which makes me think that the Faust myth is due an updating. Maybe I'll get around to writing "President Faust" soon.
