Um, does anyone know what smug-looking Jim Caviezel is saying at the beginning of this political ad? And could he be speaking. . . Aramaic? Could there be any more blatant way to appeal to religious voters than getting "Jesus" to say something in Aramaic that no one can understand, and then tell them how to vote on an issue? Well, if Jesus says. . . wait, what did Jesus just say? Anyone speak Aramaic? The ad by the way is about the same amendment in Missouri as this one by Michael J Fox that is so poignant and heartbreaking, the very same one Rush Limbaugh was mocking, actually making himself shake like a Parkinson's sufferer and saying Michael J Fox was faking it. How soulless are these guys? And the worst part is, this is by no means the nastiest or most underhanded of the Republican campaign ads. I only wish Americans didn't fall for them, but they do. That's the real tragedy.
